SUPER HIGH ROLLER POKER EVENT TO BE STREAMED BY POKER ACES
Fans will be able to experience the high stakes tension at home or on the move.
The massive $102,000 buy-in NLHE 8-max Super High Roller event scheduled by Pokerstars as part of its current World Championship of Online Poker series will be streamed to poker fans across the globe in separate initiatives by ace professional players Jason Mercier and Jason Somerville on September 11 at 1:30 Eastern Daylight Time.
The two professionals will individually stream their high stakes action in the tournament, according to a statement from Twitch.TV in which poker manager Scott Ball said:
“Twitch is proud to host Jason Mercier playing the $102,000 Super High Roller. I look forward to seeing Jason’s strategy unfold hand by hand and learning from him. And of course, Jason ‘JCarver’ Somerville was the founder of poker streaming and a Twitch legend. With him in the booth, there won’t be a dull moment.”
Pokerstars communications chief Eric Hollreiser agreed, saying:
“Jason Mercier streaming the event and showing his hole cards gives poker fans an amazing opportunity to jump on board the action and excitement. On top of that, Jason Somerville has made Twitch the premiere channel for poker fans and knows how to put on a truly great show. All this combined is going to make for some intense Sunday poker watching.”
