Last night (May 19), poker on Twitch cemented itself as one of the most nail-biting, hair-raising, even tear-jerking forms of live entertainment we have.
Both Lex Veldhuis and Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg returned to Day 3 of the $10,300 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) Main Event with 40 remaining, $26,700 locked up, and a staggering $1,062,955 up top.
It’s hard to ignore numbers like that. It was a stream you simply couldn’t miss, whether you’re a complete newcomer to poker or a grizzled veteran.
As good friends, fake rivals and fellow PokerStars Ambassadors, Lex and Spraggy teamed up for a squad stream (Twitch streamers can team up so viewers can tune in to multiple streams at once, flicking back and forth between the action).
It proved perfect for last night, particularly when the two found themselves on the same table.
