The world's most popular poker streamer on Twitch.tv, Jason Somerville, will be covering two of the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) biggest events in the $5,200 PCA Main Event and the $100,000 PCA Super High Roller.
The PokerStars Team Pro is the proud owner of a strong Twitch following with over nine million unique views and 147,000 people followers on his Run It UP channel. His popularity helped him secure a partnership with PokerStars where he has continued to grow his brand and following.
However, instead of streaming on his own channel, he will be broadcasting with a variety of co-commentators on the PokerStars.tv channel in the Bahamas from January 8-14. During downtime, he will be streaming his own live poker. Fellow live streaming and PokerStars Team Online Jamie Staples will also be streaming action on PokerStars.tv.
Somerville expressed his excitement about the streaming to his almost 50,000 Twitter followers.
