Welcome to another PokerVIP top list where we get to share all of our favourite Twitch streams with you! The purpose of watching Twitch streams can vary - maybe you want more insight or first-hand experience for a specific game type, or maybe you just want to unwind and watch JCarver one table while chatting with his subscribers. Either way, our list will cover all the best poker live streams so there will be something for everyone.Starting off with the biggest name in Twitch poker streaming with no other than...
Jason 'jcarver' SomervilleJason Somerville aka 'jcarver' is hands down the most popular Twitch streamer. He recently broke his previous poker category viewership record with an audience of almost 40,000 while playing in the WCOOP. He does only play ONE table at a time however, so viewership to his stream is likely for entertainment rather than analyzing game play, however you can't take away that the guy is definitely a successful poker player.
Not to look too biased here listing off four PokerStars pros but these guys are at the top of the followers list for Poker streams, and they go live on a very regular schedule.
The PokerStars Streamer Pack
- Randy "nanonoko" Lew - Randy Lew streams it all and is a great presenter to watch. He always reviews and provides insights that other streamers may not. He's coming in hot at 20k followers on Twitch and is one of the leading Team PokerStars streamers.
- Felix 'fxlixx' Schneiders - Player, coach, and member of the PokerStars Team is Felix Schneiders. He is definitely one of the more informative streamers and you can also get in on his poker school and training programs which are really great for beginner players. Felix is one of those successful players who really gives back to the game by streaming.
- Jamie 'PokerStaples' Staples - The lovable Jamie Staples, how could you forget Jamie. He is definitely one of the most well spoken and informative streamers out there. I remember when he first started out streaming to a few hundred at a time, and now he regularly has audiences in the thousands. He streams tournaments, has home games for his subscribers and viewers, and in my opinion is one of the friendliest and most engaging players on Twitch.
- Bertrand 'ELkY' Grospellier - Known mainly as ElkY, he is a European poker pro with a regular streaming schedule. You may not have known this but ElkY was previously a pro StarCraft player and also played professionally in Korea among the first Europeans. He may not do in-depth explanations of his play but he certainly competes at the top level.
Adrian FenixxBrace yourself for one of the more interesting Twitch poker streams out there - Adrian may only stream for a few hours at a time but his action packed sessions are sure to entertain. Recently hitting over 10k followers he is one of the more well-known streamers - he definitely contributes to the Twitch poker community.
Adrian plays anywhere from 1/2 to 5/10 across a wide variety of sites. His streams are often appreciated as he's able to break down his game play and explain things in an easy-to-digest manner for his viewers. He's also seen a fair amount of success in other games so don't be surprised if you catch him streaming CS:GO, Hearthstone, or some of the other popular games out there.
JpatcheJoel 'Jpatche' Patchell is one of my favourite streamers - he's up there with the top cash players on Twitch. His level headed and analytical approach to the game makes watching his stream highly enjoyable and educational as you get insights into the decisions of a guy who's been a pro since 2004. Starting at just 25NL he's worked his way up to participating in 200/400 PLO games on Full Tilt.
When watching Jpatche's stream enjoy uninterrupted action as during bathroom breaks he continues play from his iPad using a remote desktop control. Among other quirks he often has his green screen set up to feature exotic backgrounds, and his loveable dog always shows up to eat his leftover apple core!
Definitely check Jpatche out - he almost always streams on weekdays during the day (Eastern time).
EasyWithAcesIf you're looking for a solid MTT streamer to watch who interacts marvelously with his viewers - look no further. Fintan 'EasyWithAces' Hand streams every week day from his grind house in Malta and plays MTTs while providing solid analysis til he drops.
He's super friendly and great to watch, and he tweets out before he goes live each day so you'll never miss the action. He has given up his more hardcore SNE grind to get more involved in the streaming community and so far I'd say he's doing wonderfully.
Another one for the list for the most friendly and interactive streamers on Twitch poker, Darius 'KomodoDragonJesus' has so heavily integrated himself in the community that the Poker category would be at a loss without him.
Check out Darius' stream for regular cash games on PokerStars, and fun viewer events with all of his subscribers. Check out an interview he did with PokerTube recently to get some more insights into the life of this Canadian streamer.
One of the few US based streamers is PokerJermz - a stay at home dad and poker pro. With over $300,000 lifetime winnings he's ranked #3 in New Jersey on PocketFives.
Watching his stream you can expect insights from a long-time online grinder who mainly plays 50 and 100 NL.
