Jason Somerville with a new innovative Twitch format 30 Sep

Jason Somerville launches Chat Plays Poker – new innovative Twitch format on his channel runitup, where viewers actively participate.

Usually we are used to just watch poker streamers play, but here the story is completely different. As the name suggests, viewers are in the driving seat. How does it work?

Player at the tables wears a camera on his head, so we are watching poker from the first-person perspective. And chat on how the hand should be played. Raise, fold, all-in? Decision is yours!

In one of the streams chat played against Chris Moneymaker and Joe Stapleton. You can watch replay down below.


Even though a former King of Twitch Poker doesn’t actively stream anymore, he’s still revolutionizing Poker category on this biggest streaming platform. We’ll see in the coming weeks and months if this new format also takes off.
