Kid Poker checks out this new-fangled Twitch thing. And online poker’s bad day, four years later. It’s all in our daily wrap-up of the world of poker, the Hit and Run.
So, Twitch got a little more star power, as Daniel Negreanu started live streaming. Griffin Benger also got into the act. Story here. Check out his live stream here, although we don’t know when he’ll be on again. But he already has 6,000 subscribers. if Negreanu were to do this regularly, clearly it would be a gamechanger for just about everyone, and we’re guessing he quickly becomes the No. 1 most viewed poker player. He’s funny, and he’s good at poker, and people will watch him doing about anything. From Twitter:
