Run It Up Announces Five Finalists for its “Next Great Twitch Streamer” Contest

Daniel Negreanu, Liv Boeree, Lex Veldhuis, Jaime Staples, and other PokerStars ambassadors have all announced their Platinum Pass winners, and now it’s time for Jason Somerville to pick his winner.

In June, as part of PokerStars’ Platinum Pass Adventure promotion and in conjunction with his company Run It Up, Jason announced a contest to find the “Next Great Twitch Streamer”.

In order to qualify as a finalist, participants were asked to play primarily on PokerStars with at least 150 broadcast hours on Twitch.

Hundreds of streamers entered the contest and they were given four months to convince Twitter audiences and a judging panel comprising of poker streaming pros including Lex Veldhuis, Kevin Martin, Jaime Stapes, Ben “Spraggy” Spragg, Jeff Gross, Fintan Hand and of course Jason Somerville himself that they will be the Next Great Twitch Streamer.

RIU has now announced the final five streamers of which one of them will be given a Platinum Pass. The streamers include ALLinPav, IrEgption, Pyefacepoker, Rschoonbaert, and Vanessa Kade.

The panel will pick the winner based on the criteria such as average concurrent viewers, chat interaction, hours broadcast, tournament cashes, their presence in the Twitch Poker community, and the ability to fulfill the role of “Twitch Poker Ambassador”

The winner will be announced tomorrow and he or she will be representing Run It Up at the $25,000 buy-in PSPC event in the Bahamas.
