This is a discussion on Twitch best streamers? your top 3? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hello guys,
These days, learning poker by watching poker streams on Twitch has become my new way to understand how it works and have an idea
These days, learning poker by watching poker streams on Twitch has become my new way to understand how it works and have an idea on many player's perspectives by having access to every decision a streamer makes live! There are recreationals and professionnals streaming! Amazing!
Also it has become entertainement for me! Tonka, Lex and BBZ are making great shows in my opinion!
I wanted to ask Twitch users here on CC : Who are your best 3 streamers and what do you think about Twitch poker in geneal??
I've only watched a very small amount of Twitch streamers and the part I find lacking is there's not much actually analytical content to it (like player let's you see their play but the 'why' has to be deciphered by you... we don't hear what player thinks villain is thinking... nevermind what player is thinking (or thinking what villain is thinking that player is thinking lol). Or about their acutally off table analysis... how they use different things (ie snowie)
One of the ones I've watched recently is Jordan (BBZ).. and once I get past his music selection & the way he tries to be gangsta & all dat... I've had it playing a bit in the background on another computer. To just solely watch it though... I find it a tad boring.
I used to get much more out of training vids... when content was related to different concepts.
Perhaps there will be a new guy on the Twitch scene that will grab my interest more than the others... something I can watch for & try to find I suppose.
In terms of learning the game, I think Twitch is not a great tool. What I find good is watching how the pros react to situations. Generally they take their beats well and recognise that on that occasion they lost, but overall they made the right play - that really helps with my mindset, because one of the biggest things I suffer with is bad beat tilt.
It's not the outcome of the hand that's important; it's how you got there that defines whether you played it well or not.
