Imagine this. You’re winding down your poker session, playing the last game of the night, casually streaming to a handful of Twitch viewers.

Then you win a WCOOP title.

That’s exactly what happened to Martin “Marksman_M” Thien Wu, winner of the WCOOP 05-M: $55, 8-Max PKO.

I caught up with Martin for a chat about his time at the tables that fateful evening.

One of the stories that really stood out was how he started playing poker in the first place (more on that later). The fact that he streamed the win live on Twitch makes Martin’s journey even better. Only a few lucky witnesses were there to see it live as Martin claimed his place in history, not only as a WCOOP champion, but as a streamer too.
