2) Poker On the Strip Debuts on Twitch

The poker live stream/Twitch.tv market continues to grow and an intriguing new addition joined the fray last night.

Danielle Andersen

DMoon gets Bellagio stream rolling.

Dubbed “Poker On the Strip” the Bellagio live stream debuted with some $2/$5/$10 No-Limit Holdem action featuring Danielle Andersen and Dan O’Brien, among others.

Given the volume/level or pros circulating in and around the Bellagio this game obviously has some potential to be very fun and intriguing.

They’ll be streaming every Wednesday in May until the WSOP starts with a $10/$20 game lined up for May 24 that should get even bigger.

Check the schedule and replay of the first go-round below:

3) Kevin Hart Has Arrived and He’s Brought His Abs

Rebuys and prop bets are flying, Dan Colman is in a bathrobe, Leon Tsoukernik has bought a bottle of Johnny Walker and Ole Schemion has parlayed his win in the Opening €10k event into a late reg buy-in.


All Hart to start.

What else could it be but the beginning of the €100k Super High Roller at the PokerStars Championship Monaco?

Also dropping in for a surprise appearance?

Kevin “Mr. Whoopass” Hart, who apparently had so much fun at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas he’s taking another shot at the kings of poker.

He’s dropped in in spectacular fashion, too, including a helicopter arrival, a ribbing for Daniel Negreanu and plenty of banter at the table. Oh, and he’s brought his abs and a new nickname.

My nickname is Mr Whoopass https://t.co/cwECGlnkPO
