plenopads jumps in first.

Has there been a bigger gamechanger in the poker strategy game over the past year than Twitch.tv?

Formerly just a hub for online gamers, poker has surged onto the Twitch consciousness over the past 10 months led by the ultra-popular Jason Somerville and his RunItUp army.

Daniel Negreanu, Parker Talbot, Jamie Staples, ElkY, Sam Grafton, Jeff GrossDutch Boyd, the Global Poker League ... dozens of poker superstars have signed on to stream their online action and share their hard-earned insight with passionate fans and new audiences.

All for free, no less.

Joining in the trend have also been several big poker brands, from Poker Central to PokerStars to Unibet, and now partypoker has jumped into the mix, launching its own channel last night.

Leonard Up First

Starting things off was partypoker Ambassador Patrick "plenopads/tiote22" Leonard, a career online crusher with $2.7m in online earnings.

Offering a look “inside the mind of one of the world’s best poker players" Leonard streamed for over 3 hours.

Playing a variety of games and stakes and multi-tabling in the process, Leonard showed off just how bright his game is and how much insight can be gleaned.

Along with fellow (and newly signed) partypoker ambassadors Jackie Glazier, Natalie Breviglieri and Beata “Wildhungarian” Jambrik, he'll be part of a regular weekly Twitch lineup that includes:

  • Thumping Thursdays with Adam "IT5PAYDAY" Neal – live from 7pm with action from the Thursday Bounty, the Uppercut and the Contender
  • Sunday Sessions Live with Beata “Wildhungarian” Jambrik playing SNG HERO
  • Tuesday Twitch - Adam "IT5PAYDAY" Neal in action
  • Thursday Session (October 20) Meet partypoker ambassador Natalia “N4talB” Breviglieri Live at 7pm (20:00CET) for mixed Powerfest session
