One of the most ground-breaking changes we have seen in the gaming industry has been the option for players to stream their exploits to all corners of the globe. The likes of Twitch and Netflix have revolutionised how we spend a lot of our screen time in this day and age. Here are some of best and up-and-coming streamers that we can watch on TwitchTV today.


“TonkaaaaP”

Parker “Tonkaaaa” Talbot is a high-stakes MTT grinder with a famously entertaining style when in front of the camera. A couple of years ago the young Canadian was egged on by his friend Jaime Staples to give all this a go and what a star he has turned out to be.

Now an 888poker brand ambassador, Talbot has worked his socks off to build a profile that makes him currently one of the most recognisable players in the game. Antics such as drunken blackjack sessions, and even giving away his chair during a live stream have made him a character that has people tuning back in for more and more action.

“Spraggy”

Ben “Spraggy” Spragg is one of the new stars of the streaming niche. The young Englishman has been on the scene for a while now and is now starting to build his channel into one of the premier poker channels.

In the middle of 2017 Spraggy was offered the chance to join the much lauded PokerStars Team Online alongside Jeff Gross and Fintan Hand, both of whom are popular streamers.

With almost 100,000 channel views each month, and an average of 1,770 followers joining the fray, Spraggy is on course to overtake many of his fellow poker streamers in the near future.

RunItUp

This is none other than the home of Jason “JCarver” Somerville. The guy who literally invented poker streaming in the format we see today.

Not the most prolific streamer on the network, but with more than 220,000 followers he is close to the top 500 biggest channels out there. Due to his inactivity he is losing around 500 of his followers each month but it doesn’t really matter at this stage. If you see the American return to action anytime soon you’d be well advised to drop in and see his show.

LexVeldhuis

With the RunItUp channel not so active these days Lex Veldhuis is running the number one poker stream on Twitch.

Hailing from Rotterdam in the Netherlands, Veldhuis entertains his fans with high-stakes tournament action around the clock. More than 95,000 followers makes him one of the most popular figures in the poker industry. His channel is now growing at an incredible 2,800+ followers each month, with almost 275,000 unique views to back it up.

Elky

The legendary Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier` doesn’t stream so often these days, but when he does it’s an event to kick back and enjoy. ElkY is one of the game’s much-loved characters and also often streams games other than poker, such as Hearthstone and his first love Starcraft.

This is more of an honorary mention than anything else due to his recent inactivity. With the news of his signing for partypoker hopefully this will give him the urge to regularly stream once again.
