Partypoker is delighted to welcome Lui Martins as the latest player to join its specialist streaming team, Twitch Team Online. Martins gained his poker grounding from family home games in early life, before going on to taste success in World of Warcraft and Quake, like many peers before him. It was by streaming these games on Twitch that Martins grew to love the channel and build up a dedicated fan base.
Predominantly an online specialist, Martins has enjoyed a string of impressive results at the virtual tables, however the Brazilian is no stranger to the live arena either, finishing 4th in the 2016 WSOP International Circuit São Paulo Main Event for $79,457.
Martins joins high profile names including Jeff Gross and Jaime Staples on the ranks of Twitch Team Online, with the overall aim of bringing high quality streaming content to new and old poker audiences alike. Martins can be found playing at the partypoker tables under ‘LuiMartins’.
Martins said: “When Jaime invited me to join Team Online, I remember thinking it was the best that could have happened to me! I admired his hard work and the team's effort to grow partypoker!
“I've been following the streaming community since Justin.TV and now is the perfect time for me to have my own channel. It also fits perfectly with my current plans of staying close to my wife and son – recently one year and a half, the cutest ever! Grinding MTTs online and streaming is a perfect mix of work and family time, since I'm always near everything that I love!”
