F5’s Thanksgiving Top 10 (2014 Edition): Number 3 – Jason Somerville

Top 10 Poker Personalities We’re Thankful For – 2014

There are some people out there that truly, madly, deeply love the game of poker and what to share their findings with anyone who will listen. That guy is Jason Somerville. Somerville is among one of the hardest working poker pros making a name for himself and his love of the game has turned into a mini-poker revolution with his popular online Run It Up campaign. A former Ultimate Poker sponsored pro, Somerville pressed the eject button on that deal before the ship exploded but when he did many worried that without the backing of an online sponsor his efforts may wain. Not only did Somerville not retreat, he went all in producing more live streaming content than ever before.

In addition to his streaming prowess, his ability to play poker and his never ending skills at chatting it up while explain his thoughts, Somerville is seemingly the type of guy who treats everyone with a high level or respect and greets them with a smile. A protege of Daniel Negreanu, Somerville is a new school ambassador and, thankfully, one that looks to be in play for many many years to come.
