“I’m super excited for this cash game. Getting this many of our big poker broadcasters together at the same table will no doubt be entertaining but also give the Twitch poker fans some familiar faces to root for. On top of that, everyone at the table has a pre-existing relationship, one can only imagine the table banter will make for some great TV as well!” said Scott Ball, Director of Poker for Twitch.
Twitch has helped usher in new fans of the game of poker by fostering communities around the poker pros that have made their personal Twitch channels their online home base for engaging with their fans.
“Twitch has offered the poker world a new platform for interacting with our loyal fan base and it’s exciting to be the first to merge the world of TV and social video together for one entertaining poker content production.” said Todd Anderson, President of Poker Night in America.
The live stream will also include special appearances by David Tuchman and Phil Laak. The stream will be filmed for television, set to air during Season 3 of Poker Night in America on CBS Sports.
