Run it Up
Web series devised and hosted by Jason'JCarver' Somerville, "Run it UP" achieved quite a success with itstarget audience. It all started as a bankroll challenge which Somervillestarted after he was signed by Ultimate Poker.
Somerville, whose success at the livetournament scene, primarily WSOP, led to him being invited to newly formed'U-Team' in 2013, had not only a natural talent for the game but also a flarefor producing great poker content - something that's been passion of his for along time.
From the first, rather simple episodes,"Run it UP" kept growing and developing, gradually earning it's placeon the "ones to watch" poker shows list. It all started with a $50bankroll and a lot of enthusiasm and turned into something much bigger.
From a lone kid with the dream in front of hiscomputer, Somerville managed to gather a big fan base and after a while he wasno longer alone in front of his computer either. He started hosting differentguests, including Danielle 'dmoongirl' Anderson and Scott Seiver, adding extraflavor to already well loved show.
"Run it UP" lasted for two fullseasons and 250 episodes before the show came to an end. Ultimate Poker wasfacing serious difficulties in the United States, leading to them letting goall of their sponsored pros and subsequently closing the shop.
Somerville's initial intention with "Runit UP" was to turn the initial $50 into $10,000 and although he came shortof that goal, he did provide a great number of poker fans with a lot of fun trying.
Jason 'JCarver' Somerville was signed byPokerStars in 2015 and continued doing what he does the best - live streaming hispoker adventures on Twitch, entertaining the masses, trying to "Run itUP"!
