twitching it up

I first heard about Twitch thanks to the fact I follow a couple Magic: the Gathering players on Twitter. I’d never really watched it, but I knew they streamed, and I wondered whether it would be a good idea for me to stream Magic. I’m not very good at Magic, though, so I gave up on that idea and forgot about it.

Poker then started to get pretty popular on Twitch, so I started paying more attention. My friend Bryan started to stream, and I really enjoyed watching him play poker and interact with his viewers. A different friend suggested that I stream, too, so I decided to give it a try.

I’ve done two short test streams and one 2 hr stream so far. I didn’t think streaming would be easy, but it’s definitely harder than I thought it would be! Playing poker and talking and reading chat all at the same time has definitely been a challenge. It’s been pretty fun, though, so I’ll probably keep at it for a bit more and hopefully it will get easier 😉

My stream can be found at if you are interested in watching. I currently play up to $200 hyper HUs and $60 spins on stream. Action has been pretty terrible lately so I haven’t been playing as much HU as I would like to, but I guess that’s just to be expected during the summer.

I haven’t quite decided on my streaming schedule yet, so it’s best to just following my Twitter to find out when I’m streaming.

Oh and if you decide to watch, be nice. I’m a huge Twitch noob 😛 And say hi!

    Hey remember me. I was checking on this twitch thing and I saw u on. I was so happy. I told u about my mom having lupus just to remind u who I am. I am not very technical so I could not figure out how to comment to u during play. But I wanted to say u looked great and u seem to be in great spirits. I will someday figure it out and will chat while u are playing/ in the meantime I wish u luck and hope u are feeling well.

      Hi Bob! Yes I remember you :) I hope your mom is doing ok? Thank you so much for checking me out on Twitch and for coming here to tell me that you were watching! I appreciate it so much. You should be able to chat once you make an account and login to the site. I look forward to chatting with you there!
