The re-vamp of 888poker continues with the launch of its brand new Twitch.TV channel, 888pokerTV.
The channel will stream online events, live commentaries, and other miscellaneous poker content. Promoting the service under its brand and slogan – Made to Play – the channel will give players access to poker content 24/7.
888poker went live on Sunday, April 18, streaming the opening event of the WPTDeepSTacks London Online Series (WPTDS). Nick Wealthall and David Tchman provided commentary on the curtain-raiser, attracting around 357 entries.
This concluded in a $21,500 pool for the tournament, which was won by a player with the moniker i2out. The player took home $40,540 after eight and a half hours of play.
There will be additional coverage of the WPTDS as the series continues, featuring various poker pros and personalities. During the streams, 888pokerTV will be giving away cash and tournament tickets – including entries to the WPTDS $1050 Main Event.
