Agreed, also he's reached 20k+ people multiple times during deep runs making him among the top viewed people on twitch at the time.

I think he was playing particularly straight forward vs the big stack because he didn't want to bust and I do agree he doesn't seem to fight post flop as much in tourneys, but watch some of his old cash game sessions and you'll see the dude literally never folds and fights for every pot.

He's streaming on twitch for hours every single day.

11 hours+ straight today before taking even a piss break.

He was drinking the same glass of water for 11 hours.

He is constantly interacting with viewers on twitch, twitter, etc.

He definitely spewed at the end, although he tried to defend his plays.

I think fatigue had to set in even though he would never admit it.

Seems like a great guy, and great for poker.

We are pretty lucky to have him introducing recreational players to the game considering he probably doesn't need to play another hand of poker in his lifetime to be financially secure.

He played the same way the whole match. When you're getting 4-1 you only need to be right 20% of the time. Near the end he was virtually never right. Even worse whenever he had a strong hand everyone folded.

He had a good run and didn't win. Such is the life of a poker player. It takes a lot of luck to pull down a tournament with 1000+ entries.

Awesome stream, its like poker coaching everyday. The fact he plays stuff on immediate odds is impressive. I keep trying to add it to my game and end up in so many difficult decisions that I usually end of folding what I was defending LOL.

BUT YEA MAKE A PAIR - HOLD THE **** ON - MAKE (high pitch) MOOOONNNNEEEYYY

No one else finds him super annoying? I find his stream unwatchable. Awesome what he is doing for the game but still can't watch.

Love the stream. Thought I would never say this, but I find watching a guy playing poker online on one table very entertaining.

If there is a next poker boom, JCarver will be a big part of it. The dude is the most entertaining streamer out there. He interacts with the chat and twitter pretty much during the whole stream. I don't agree with some of his plays, but it obviously works for him with how successful he is.

GG ****heads.

Just wish Jason would stop showing/discussing his viewers $0.10 SNG butchered hands. Props to him for managing to act so cool about it though lol

Super annoying...no.

Slightly annoying....yes.

The bird, enorma penga (whatever that is), spamming his clothes, stupid referral codes, random photoshops from his viewers, his viewers, I won't watch the stream.

I do give him credit for what he's done and feel he's probably good for the 15-22 year olds that have never/barely played poker but I just can't get into it.

I don't find him annoying although I don't understand the massive appeal/popularity of his stream. I'm guessing that the experienced grinder would not enjoy it so much and mostly only young, new, non-poker players and light recs enjoy it?

I've been around the block a few times and I enjoy it. It's just good, he's a positive guy and he puts the stream first. He's not in a dimly lit room 12 tabling and not talking.

Re: ***OFFICIAL JASON SOMMERVILLE TWITCH APPRECIATION THREAD***

Weird seeing how this streaming of poker has become so huge. In 2008/2009 every now and then I used to stream me playing full tilt sngs on Justin.tv Never used to get alot of viewers only did it for fun, but too see where it is now I wish I stuck at it. Then again I couldn't win a hand of poker if my life depended on it

+1
He understands that most people play a game (even one in which you can make or lose money) because it is fun. Easily the most entertaining streamer that I have come across.

He swears more than a drunken sailor. Even Antonio told him to tone it down. I kindly mention in chat that I think all the swearing he is doing is hurting him for any possible future poker related opportunities. He called me a mother fukker and says he does what he wants. I doubt if Tuckman needs a day off during the WSOP that he fills in.

That's definitely not his cash style.

Ill bet he pissed off a lot of people by his statements against always having 100bb and autotopping in cash games. Said he prefers to buyin for 60bb.

He's unfiltered and that's a big reason why people enjoy him so much. He drops f-bombs on the stream - big deal.

His openness is one of the reasons why he's so likable and successful. If you think he swears too much, don't watch.
