While Joe McKeehen was taking on and defeating other Main Event champs in one Sit and Go, Jeff Gross was doing the same thing with the entire PokerStars Team Online in another – emerging triumphant and claiming bragging rights in the PokerStars Turbo Series TwitchTV Showdown.

Among the contenders on Wednesday night’s battle royale were the biggest names in the poker streaming world, with Jaime Staples, Lex Veldhuis, Benjamin ‘spraggy’ Spragg, Randy ‘nanoko’ Lew, Adrienne Rowsome, Fintan ‘EasyWithAces’ Hand, Felix ‘xflixx’ Schneiders and Kevin Martin battling Gross for the top prize of a $1,000 Turbo Series Main Event seat.

With all the pros having their own fan-base and, of course, the ability to put out their own content on TwitchTV during the epic slugfest, although initially Fintan Hand took to Twitter to wind up the opposition…

…and the trash-talking continued with Ben ‘spraggy’ Spragg planning on ‘digging holes and taking souls’ as the battle for bragging rights among the PokerStars Team Online pros heated up…

Of course, it’s unlikely that the majority of the players would be having such a great time streaming their poker adventures without the ground-breaking – and record-breaking – Jason ‘jcarverpoker’ Somerville.

Jaime Staples was perfectly clear about how much Somerville has done for the online community, stating:

“Jason Somerville is someone I have looked up to since before I started streaming. He has been the gold standard for what a high-quality broadcast can be on Twitch. To follow in his footsteps is amazing.”

Staples took down the prestigious Best Streamer award last week…

But back at the table, however, it wasn’t to be his night, Gross proving too strong for his fellow Twitch and PokerStars colleagues – and revealing that if he wins anything in the Main Event, half the cash will be split with his TwitchTV poker community.

As for the PokerStars Turbo Series, the $15million guaranteed 74 tournament series will continue through the weekend, the $1,050 buy-in, $2.5 million guaranteed Main Event finishing things off nicely.
