Twitch Poker – Watch the best poker live streams on Twitch.tv
What is Twitch?
Twitch is the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers and poker players, where you can watch live streams of all major video games, online poker and live poker events or just listen to your favourite music or DJ.
Founded in June 2011 Twitch really started to take off in the end of 2013. In October 2013 Twitch had 45 million unique viewers, while just 5 months later it was already the fourth largest source of Internet traffic in the USA!
Last year Twitch announced that they have more than 100 million visitors per month and 1.7 million people, who are streaming live on one of the several channels.
Facts and Figures:
- More than 100 million unique viewers per month.
- More than 1.7 million broadcasters.
- An average of 106 minutes watched per person per day.
- More than 2 million peak viewers.
How does poker on Twitch work?
It’s very easy. All a streamer needs is a fast computer and internet connection plus a streaming software, such as open source programs like Open Broadcaster Software (OBS).
Then the streamer records his online poker session and broadcasts it with a couple of minutes delay.
The great thing about Twitch poker is that it is interactive. You can not only watch some of the best poker players in the world watch play and analyzing their game for free, but also contact, comment and interact with the streamer via the chatbox.
That means you can get a live poker coaching, and the best thing is, it is completely free of charge!
Why is Twitch the poker medium of the future?
As stated above the major reason is simply that it is for free. Poker players don’t have to pay a lot of money for expensive subscriptions of poker schools anymore.
Almost all top players: Fedor Holz, Doug Polk, Vanessa Selbst, Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth are now streaming poker on Twitch, so you can learn from the best.
On top of that, Twitch originates in eSports and is perfectly suited for live poker streams and big live events. The Godfather of Twitch Poker, Jason Somerville, already broadcasted the last PCA and Aussie Millions live on his Twitch channel and it was a major success.
Sooner or later we will probably have the opportunity to follow all major tournaments and even the WSOP Main Event Final Table live on Twitch.
