Sunday May 17,2015 : BLACKJACK BACKFIRE ON TWITCH
 
Online audience of 40,000 watches this player freak out over a $5,000 loss.
 
British newspapers over the weekend entertained their readers with vid from a Twitch feed which showed a young player losing it over an expensive hand of live dealer blackjack, watched by an online audience of 40,000 Twitchers.
 
The gambler, identified as Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris, lost $5,000 on the hand, triggering his OTT reaction after he initially drew an ace, followed by a five and a jack, whereupon the dealer drew two sixes. With only a face card between him and defeat, the tension grew as the dealer turned over another six to win the hand.
