What up Team!
Big news in the world of Twitch Poker! Firstly, congrats to Jaime Staples and his new partnership with PokerStars! Jaime is doing big things with Twitch and is helping bring tons of new players to the platform.
Now, on our end...
I know I've said I don't care about being the #1 stream on Twitch... but that doesn't mean I don't want you watching the best. So I went ahead and found someone who I strongly believe will be the #1 poker streamer on Twitch. It's only a matter of time
Griffin Benger Joins Twitch & Team Gripsed!
Griffin is not only one of the best tournament players in the world, but he has a great personality built for streaming. Plus he's got a great background with the whole competitive gaming area from when he was the best in the world at Counter Strike.
Griffin will be streaming Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. He'll be playing the highest stakes MTTs including the Super Tuesday, Thursday Thrill, Sunday Million and more!
I highly, highly recommend you follow his stream and subscribe (when you're able to), Griffin is going to be the next big thing.
If you guys are liking Griff's stream tweet @GriffinBenger to show him some love. If I know Griff, and I do very well, there's nothing that makes him happier than receiving love on Twitter. Seriously... nothing.
Want to know more about Griffin Benger?
Yeah, he's a legend.
GRIPSED TWITCH NEWS
On a more personal note, here a recap on the Gripsed stream...
I got my new computer so no more complaining about the webcam being -2 FPS (seriously, it's good now). Well it wasn't until the new computer crashed. How does a guy who tries so hard to just give away great free value to his team have so much bad luck getting a proper set up!
Twitch Highlights (Subs only):
- We had a 114 follow train with some Mario hype! (video)
- NEW REVIEW: Full Tilt Classic $30k first place win (video)
- $100 donation from our favourite MistressDD ;)
- How to raid a stream...nicely (video)
Have you joined our stream raids yet?!
At the end of every stream, we come together to have some fun on other streamer's channels. Usually... attractive... streamers and shower them with awesomeness!

CHARLIE CARREL THE BOSS
Charlie final tabled the Full Tilt Major Sunday finishing 8/9. Not bad. What's even better could be his EPT Monaco play. The EPT Grand Final is coming up really soon and look who got a little feature from PokerNews on players to watch out for:
