Hit and Run: Two Poker Twitchers Cash In; Poker Wall of Shame; No iPoker for Cali
Dutch Boyd and Jason Somerville put on quite a show for their Twitch followers. Does poker need a Wall of Shame? DraftKings adds 12 NFL teams to their endless list of sponsored partners. And more.
A good run for Twitchers
Dutch Boyd pulled off the rare feat of winning back to back tournaments, and Jason Somerville landed at a WCOOP final table, and both of the poker pros captured their exploits in real time on Twitch.
For Boyd it was a remarkable run on WSOP.com Nevada, while Somerville was frying bigger fish, playing on the PokerStars global site. Somerville is a Twitch legend, whereas Boyd is relatively new to the medium, but has already gained a pretty strong following.
you can watch an archived video of Dutch winning tournament #2 on his YouTube channel as well:
– Like the evil Superman, The Poker Hall of Fame now has a bizarro world, as several people have come up with the idea for the Poker Wall of Shame; a place to showcase the game’s most dastardly villains. As some have already pointed out… this list could become exceedingly long as there is no shortage of worthy candidates.
– DraftKings continues to stockpile sponsorships, this time the DFS giant has reportedly inked agreements with 12 NFL teams. And speaking of DraftKings, it’s opening week of the NFL season, so stay tuned to the PTP H&R over the next couple of days as we relay how the millions of DFS dollars are divvied up.
– The California legislature put the finishing touches on their 2015 agenda, and surprise, surprise, an online poker bill didn’t make the cut. So it’s back to the drawing board in January.
