Now is your chance to help underprivileged children and get a little something for yourself at the same time with the help of PokerStars.
The first 100 people that buy a Right To Play Limited Edition Hoodie can get a PokerStars water bottle (valued at $13) free by using the promo code RTPBALL at checkout.
100% of profits from the sale of the stylish hoodies will be donated to Right To Play, a global charity organization devoted to empowering children to rise above adversity using play.
“By harnessing play, one of the most powerful and fundamental forces in a child’s life, we help 1.9 million children each week to stay in school and out of work, to prevent life-threatening diseases like HIV and malaria and to stay safe from exploitation and abuse,” the organization’s web site proclaims.
Not only will you keep warm with this 280g hoodie (and hydrated if you’re lucky enough to score one of the free water bottles), but you can also transform your hoodie into a soccer ball. That’s right, this hoodie (available in red and black) doubles as a soccer ball! How you ask…. well we don’t actually know, but if you check out the video below you can see some of PokerStars ambassadors put the hoodie into action.
If a hoodie isn’t your style (you probably need to get a new style…but I digress) you can still help the cause by playing in the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) Right To Play charity event this Sunday. All the rake in the $55 buy-in tournament will go directly to support Right To Play,
After just four months at partypoker's Team Online, the Canadian MTT grinder throws in the Twitch towel.
Twitch poker star Kevin Martin has announced his retirement from online poker streaming, effective immediately. He broken the news in a video announcement posted on Twitter.
“Why am I retiring? I think I accomplished the goal. What I wanted to do on the platform I have accomplished. One, I wanted to become a winning player … two, I wanted to entertain people, and that void in my life has been filled.”
He went on to suggest that he would continue to play poker a “ton,” though a little more recreationally, and occasionally stream. But broadly his full time job of creating poker content is over.
The former Canadian big brother contestant did not say what his next project would be, saying only that he was “really enjoying some other things” in terms of entertainment. “I think I’m going to take my career in different ways.”
It’s been an amazing ride!
The journey as a Twitch poker streamer is over. https://t.co/MIA1Jtv2t3— Kevin Martin (@KevinRobMartin) September 05, 2019
In the last few years, “KMart” has improved his game a lot, learning live on stream to his followers. He posts his profit publicly on his stream, and he profited $220,000 last year and around $80,000 so far this year in online MTTs—showing he can clearly make a living from the grind. But that’s not the path for him.
A long time PokerStars ambassador, Martin quit in February of this year and switched to partypoker in May. That makes his tenure at partypoker only four months long.
“I’m hanging it up, I’m done. I’m resigning from Team Partypoker, I wish those guys the best.”
