Been watching a lot of Twitch poker recently, some really good streamers around, Chance Kornuth has started recently and is a great watch, you have the usual ones, Veldhuis is a good watch, Sommerville is entertaining, cant watch Jeff Gross as he is way too excitable and like a huge kid, screaming when he gets deep and banging on constantly about how he is mates with Michael Phelps, clicks the refresh 100 times a minute to see how he is positioned in the tourney and you just go dizzy watching his cursor go around.

But watched some Charlie Carrel recently, brilliant watch, another level of aggression I have never seen before, just an absolute ninja who must be hell to play against

Charlie Carrel the best holdem player, but he is another spazzy mouse clicker, too.

Just watched the $25k buy in final table,was great to watch $580,000 to the winner.

If your about at daytime (mornings) innerpsy is a good watch,cash game player.

Think thats what makes him successful though mate, detach yourself from the money and play your best game.

Really tilting but just about acceptable as he is so active so it makes it interesting.

Gross on the other hand is super tight, he was deep a few times recently and almost plays scared, spots which appear to be straightforward shoves and reshoves and he folds. When he wins a hand you have to turn the volume down as he is screeching. Has to be ADHD or something. Met him a few times and he is the same live, like an excitable kid who has had too much ketchup.

Have often thought about it mate but I wouldn't know where to start and I also believe you need a spare monitor and I only have my laptop. Maybe a few years ago when I had a proper 3 monitor setup and dedicated office.

Been playing pretty well recently too so would be fun to get some deep runs.

He's new, I'd guess. I've never heard of him streaming, before you posted it.

It's the same as all social media, you have to grow your channel/page/site.

I watched a bit of the 25k, but had to mute it, which kind of defeats the purpose :lol:

I heard someone call JG a professional best friend, which did make me laugh.

Cant wait untill pokershares get the go ahead in the uk,so i can have a share of some players while watching them play,much better value than a 60 seconds horse race :D
Surprised some of the uk bookies havnt taken advantage of it and offered shares,sure it would be legal for them to do so.

Never seen PokerShares before today until Lex was talking about it, he was offering his equity at 1/1 which was basically gifting money because he runs better than evens. I tried to access the site and couldnt

Not sure what the problem is, you can access StakeKings here I think??

His brainchild my arse,i came up with the idea about 12 years ago on the old laddies forum,everyone said it wouldnt work,my idea was to let people buy a piece of players in tournies and if say they bought 10% they would get 10% of whatever that player cashed for,with the bookies charging a bit of vig on the buyin fee,most said at the time that everyone would just back the good players and the bookies/sites who offered it would lose a fortune.
So fuck him ime claiming it :hide: :D
Wish someone would remember that post,was a big debate about it at the time.
