It’s been a busy week for partypoker with big name signings, huge live tournament Team pro victories, a record-breaking grind in the making – as well as massive live and online series on the horizon, so let’s take a look in more detail at the site’s weekly newsletter…

Jaime Staples to join Team Online on May 4th

partypoker kept us all on tenterhooks for as long as they could, but finally they announced that Jaime Staples would be joining brother Matty and a host of other TwitchTV streaming stars in their Team Online.

Star Wars day, May 4th, was named as the day Jaime would officially join the squad, bringing his own unique streaming style and 120,000 TwitchTV followers to the site, which now boasts the top poker-streaming talent from across the globe. 

Diamond Club VIP grinders chasing the record books…

Launched just 6 weeks ago, the new VIP Elite status is already on its way into the record books, with a trio of high-volume grinders - sp0ubledy, SunnyBooy and arianaGrande7 – battling it out for the SPINS number one spot that will give the first to reach it 100% cashback on their $200,000 rake!

Based on the old SuperNovaElite rewards system at rivals PokerStars, it looks almost certain that someone will smash the 52-day record for achieving Elite status – and all along the way the hopefuls are picking up big cash and tournament bonuses, each player already racking up the $10k bonus for hitting the halfway mark.
