ON AIR: PokerStars Adds to Stadium Series with YouTuber Partnerships; New Throwables

The Coronavirus pandemic has not only brought an explosion in online poker but also the elevation of streaming coverage. PokerStars has now added even more punch to the Stadium Series after partnering with a lineup of well-known content creators.

The United Kingdom-based Sidemen YouTube collective stream on a multi-channel network. The group is creating a series of videos on the YouTube channels as well as the PokerStars Twitch channel.

Sidemen battle it out on PokerStars

As part of the promotion, the Sidemen will be playing poker together and entertaining viewers.

Crew members are also competing to see who can do the best in the Stadium Series. The group reaches millions of YouTube viewers and include:

Brian “True Geordie” Davis

The Sidemen will also battle PokerStars ambassadors Ben “Spraggy” Spragg, Lex Veldhuis, and Fintan Hand. The whole group will play in an eight-person stream on the PokerStars Twitch channel.

Additionally, British YouTube podcaster Brian “True Geordie” Davis will also join in the events. Davis also participated in the Stars Call for Action charity tournament for COVID-19 relief.

When the Sunday Freezeout Grand Finals, Davis will be playing on his YouTube channel. UK poker pro Charlie Carrel will be coaching him throughout the event.

Twitch streaming playing a major role

The Stadium Series runs through Aug. 2 with more than $50 million guaranteed. PokerStars is also giving away more than $2 million worth of events tickets throughout the series.

The series offers something for every bankroll with buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $10,300. In addition to the YouTubers’ involvement, plenty of action will be streamed on Twitch.

The later stages of most Stadium Series tournaments will be streamed with James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton providing commentary.

Players accustomed to watching televised poker will enjoy some added enhancements to the stream. The Stadium Series will be the first PokerStars online series to feature cards-up coverage. Viewers can see players’ hole cards on a short delay.

PokerStars drops another ‘unique’ Throwable

After introducing Throwables to the platform in May, PokerStars has been adding to the collection. Players can now throw virtual “poo” at their opponents with the launch of the latest Throwable.

The scatological animation is unlocked by losing a hand holding pocket Aces or Kings. The feature is only available for a limited time and comes with its own TP.

Players can also add to their Throwables collection as well with exclusive Stadium Series animations. These include the ability to throw a gold bar at an opponent.

Unlock these Throwables by finishing in the money, making a final table, or winning a tournament in the Stadium Series.
