Watch $5K Stadium Series Grand Final ($822K up top)
Compared with the previous few, this week in Twitch poker has been a quiet one with many of the biggest poker streamers taking a break post-Stadium Series.
Of course, we still got to enjoy the massive Stadium Series Grand Finals over the weekend, and the PokerStars Twitch channel was on hand to bring us cards-up coverage with commentary.
We won’t spoil any of the action, but this is definitely a final table worth watching.
Catch up on the entire FT action below.
Twitch poker directory peaks over 100K
If there was any doubt how epic the final weekend of Stadium Series truly was, all you have to do is take a look at the numbers.
As Lex Veldhuis pointed out on Twitter, the Twitch Poker directory entered the top six on the entire platform and peaked over 100,000 concurrent viewers for the first time ever.
Holy shit poker is top 6 on Twitch globally. Just insane what has happened this month during Stadium Series. First time ever poker crossed the 100.000 viewer mark. pic.twitter.com/ZaLcvA2E1g
