Poker News released statistics from its Big Game collaboration with Party Poker this week, demonstrating the power of live videostreaming over the internet.
The poker competition was streamed live from the Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham a few weeks ago in an entertaining initiative that covered all 48 hours of the action in the high stakes cash game.
During the show, viewers were able to interact with each other, Team PokerNews, the players, and the game itself, since player evictions were decided by viewers via the Big Game Interactive interface.
There were also exclusive interviews, trivia quizzes, betting games, and freerolls throughout the weekend to keep levels of interest and participation high.
