In the last few months, Doug Polk left Twitch poker streaming in favor of greener pastures in YouTube. Oh, and he opened his own comedy show to boot. According to certain sources, casino streaming in general is on the up and up – but the same can’t be said for poker streaming.
When Polk first made his departure, he took to Reddit to explain why he made this decision:
Twitch just doesn’t seem to be doing the trick for poker streamers – because, well, poker streaming isn’t that great to begin with. Other famous poker players like Joe Ingram and Felix Schneider have also fled the Twitch nest.
The streaming site just isn’t what it used to be back in 2014. Word on the block seems to be: if you’re looking for good poker content, go to YouTube.
