Somerville + Twitch + New Record = Infographic
You might have heard that Team Pro Jason Somerville set some records last week. Actually, the chances are you watched it too.
It happened in Event #7 of WCOOP. Somerville, who plays as "jcarverpoker" on PokerStars, was broadcasting on Twitch in the usual way. His Run it UP show was already hugely popular, but now his fans were logging on in their thousands to watch him close in on a WCOOP bracelet.
As they did so those viewers - 37,434 of them - were setting a new record, making Run it UP the most viewed channel on Twitch that day. It was some achievement, which you can see for yourself on PokerStars.tv.
The other details, you can see for yourself below.
