Poker Live Streams
There's never been a better time to get loads and loads of grade-A poker video content online.
Whether it’s live streams, VODS (Video on Demand), Twitch streams, YouTube or even online poker networks there is pretty much something for everyone and, generally, it's all 100% free.
Here a quick primer on the various ways that you can stream poker content on the web right now.
Poker Tournament Live Streams
Live streams are an amazing way to watch poker tournaments live (usually with a very small delay to protect game integrity) from around the world play out.
With the major leap in technological improvements over the years you can now follow live streams from dozens of major poker tournaments -- and plenty of local tournaments as well -- with amazing quality.
Most of the live streams also have cards-up coverage with commentary from top pros to give more insight into the game and its players than ever before.
The flagship tournament series in the poker world – the World Series of Poker – has introduced live streaming for the Main Event, which is also covered live on ESPN.
Poker Central Live Stream
A new force in live poker streaming is the Poker Central network, which has a subscription service called PokerGO ($10 per month).
Account holders can watch live streaming tournaments and cash games featuring big-name poker and entertainment. Live stream coverage includes the new US Poker Open, the reboot of Poker After Dark and its signature Super High Roller Bowl. Original programming like poker documentaries and off-beat features are included too.
Check out the Poker Central YouTube and Twitch Channels for access to some of their programming.
PokerStars Live Stream
PokerStars Live is the flagship product in the tournament live stream segment with high-end production values and multiple-day coverage from all of its major tournament stops.
Action typically picks up on live stream from Day 2 of the Main Event and continues right on through to the moment the champion is crowned. Major side events like the $25k+ High Roller events also get live stream coverage.
Live commentary is provided by hosts James Hartigan, Matt Broughton and Joe Stapleton alongside plenty of guest commentators. PokerStars pros like Jeff Gross, Lex Veldhuis, Liv Boeree and Daniel Negreanu drop in regularly to give their insight into hands played and provide great color commentary.
Twitter and live stream interaction is encouraged with lots of giveaways and contests for PokerStars swag, tourney tickets and more. Passwords are also distributed for regular freerolls with lots of free cash and prizes given away to live stream viewers.
PokerStars executives also pop by the live stream to give sneak previews of new features coming up on the PokerStars client or address ongoing issues with the online poker community.
To promote the EPT and its various other tournaments and one-offs, PokerStars has spent a considerable amount of money creating a very polished product. All of the PokerStars live streams are also free of charge and available for streaming nearly everywhere in the world. In fact, the entire PokerStars video archive is available on PokerStars.tv.
PokerStars Live Streams are available from the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, EPT Sochi, EPT Monte Carlo, EPT Barcelona and EPT Prague.
ESPN (WSOP) Poker Live Stream
The World Series of Poker has experimented with various forms of live streams over the years with varied success. For the 2018 WSOP and beyond, the WSOP continues its partnership with ESPN and PokerGO for daily live video coverage of the Main Event.
The World Series of Poker Europe at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov also has live streams for all of its final tables including the Main Event.
partypoker Live Stream
One of the new major players on the live tournament scene partypoker has jumped into the poker live stream field full force.
partypoker provides live streams from all of its major live tour events including the partypoker Millions and its co-branded partypoker/WPT events like WPT Montreal.
Borgata Poker Live Stream, Sky Poker Live Stream, Live at the Bike etc…
These are hardly the only products in this segment, however, and companies like Poker Night in America, Crown Casino’s Aussie Millions and the Seminole Hard Rock have all produced exceptional live poker streams.
The Borgata in New Jersey, Sky Poker in the UK and The Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles also produce great regular live streams. Dusk Till Dawn poker room in Nottingham also has occasional live streams of its cash games.
Another major player in the cash-game streams is King’s Casino in Rozvadov. High-stakes PLO and No-Limit Holdem cash games featuring King’s owner Leon Tsoukernik and major European stars are ongoing.
Twitch Poker Live Streams
Twitch Poker is a major force in the poker live streaming world and in just a few short years has pretty much transformed poker strategy and entertainment.
Originally a platform for video gamers to stream their action for fans, poker players have now embraced it as a means to connect with fellow players and fans and give an inside look into the life of an online poker player.
Jason “Jcarver” Somerville essentially pioneered the Twitch space with a wildly entertaining stream that focuses on “running it up” and explaining intermediate to expert poker strategy as he plays.
He’s already built a legion of fervent fans and has expanded his coverage to include live streaming commentary from the Aussie Millions and his own poker festival in Reno, Nevada.
Jaime “PokerStaples” Staples, Parker “TonkaaaaP” Talbot, Doug “WCGRider” Polk, Lex “RasZi” Veldhuis and Randy “Nanonoko” Lew are just a few of the other poker stars who have embraced streaming live on Twitch.
Twitch is not just for individuals, however. Major online poker sites like Unibet Poker and 888poker have also taken to Twitch to stream a number of successful events via the platform. You can check out our quick guide to Twitch Poker streams right here.
YouTube and VODS
Twitch isn’t the only site that provides live streaming. It’s not quite as well known but YouTube also offers support for live content and there are a number of poker content creators who release videos on the site.
YouTube is also a prime spot for VODs. Most live stream content creators put their videos up on YouTube once the stream is complete, so anyone can watch them at any time.
Unfortunately quite a few videos on YouTube are posted illegally and are low quality versions of the actual thing. On the bright side most major poker companies have either embraced YouTube or at least put their videos somewhere everybody can watch them.
YouTube alternatives like Vimeo, Daily Motion and Viddler also offer a small amount of poker content.
