partypoker Announce Travis ‘dramaticdegen’ Darroch as Third Team Online Pro3 months ago
Darroch’s naming follows the signing of fellow Canadian Matt Staples, and Aussie Hristivoje ‘ALLinPav’ Pavlovic, as partypoker build their new Team Online, comprising the poker industry’s “top streamers and content creators”.
The latest recruit said of his new role:
"I am thrilled to come on board with partypoker and be a part of this exciting project. I'm really looking forward to creating some amazing new content over the coming weeks and months!"
Travis had harboured hopes of an acting career, but his success at streaming his poker exploits on TwitchTV saw him focus on cards – now boasting over 23,000 followers on his streaming channel.
As with many others of his generation, the iconic movie ‘Rounders’ was pivotal in bringing poker into his consciousness as a possible career choice – money and freedom the two key factors.
Under his ‘DramaticDegen’ nickname, Darroch has forged a successful poker career playing online MTT’s across a range of variants, and his new Team Online contract should prove very useful as he improves and grows his poker and streaming.
partypoker have stated their Team Online is ‘part of a wider company strategy earmarked for the following weeks and months with the focus on streaming quality, engaging content across partypoker’s main Twitch channel’.
In addition to their own new online squad, the site recently joined forces with Bill Perkins to sponsor ‘The Thirst Lounge’ – another poker-focused streaming channel on TwitchTV.
There are also plans afoot to launch a new partypoker high stakes cash game online, top names in poker battling it out on a livestreamed table.
partypoker are also enlisting their present Team pros onto the Twitch TV platform, the likes of Fedor Holz, Patrick Leonard and Ludovic Geilich all taking turns to host streaming sessions, which partypoker say will focus on a range of poker topics.
For now, though, it’s Travis 'dramaticdegen' Darroch’s day in the partypoker spotlight – but the question on everyone’s lips is… who will be the next Team Online pro?
