Popular poker vlogger Andrew Neeme is teaming up with Jason Somerville and Run It Up Studios as its newest poker ambassador.
News broke Monday that YouTube Poker vlogger Andrew Neeme has signed on as the newest poker ambassador for Team Run It Up, headed by longtime Twitch Poker superstar Jason Somerville.
Can’t tell you how cool this is. Teaming up w/ the guy who was the FIRST to make his own poker content that was both fun & insightful, and has always had the vision for how to best grow the game.

Since relaunching his YouTube Poker vlog in October 2016, Neeme has become one of the most-watched poker personalities in the world. His YouTube channel is quickly approaching 100,000 subscribers — an accomplishment that has only been achieved by a very small number of poker player channels.
Andrew Neeme Looks Forward to Favorable Partnership
Upon learning of the news, we reached out to Andrew late Monday evening Vegas Time to get his thoughts on his new role with Team Run It Up.
“I’m super excited to link up with Jason Somerville and his crew at Team RIU,” Neeme told Part Time Poker.
“I’ve been a fan of his for years and have always appreciated his work ethic, enjoyed his personality and respected his vision for the poker landscape.”
The Las Vegas based live poker pro and Michigan State graduate has built up quite a positive rapport with live casinos across the United States through his video content.
He believes the move will draw on the strengths of the two poker ambassadors who have demonstrated a unique aptitude for entertaining poker fans around the globe via their outreach.
“I think that it’s going to be a very mutually beneficial partnership with both of us based in Las Vegas and bringing our own strengths to the table.”
Andrew Neeme Live Twitch Poker Stream with Jason Somerville
Run It Up Studios founder Jason Somerville will join Andrew Neeme Tuesday afternoon for a live chat on Neeme’s Twitch Poker Channel.
This article will updated once the stream has been broadcast.
The announcement comes less than two weeks before Run It Up Reno VII at the Peppermill Resort & Casino in Reno, Nevada.
Somerville told Part Time Poker in August that the event is likely to be the “biggest one ever,” and could very well attract over 1,000 unique players from October 19th-29th.
