I hope he at least does some cameo streams at some stage. He is such an exciting streamer. Him and Lex are the most exciting streamers imo.

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

BB Canada does not make kev a list. Maybe in can but not in US. I'm not even sure BB is on in the US. Someone on a stupid show like teen mom has way more celebrity status. Hopefully he gets back to streaming soon but I don't see it as a real priority.

Well he is a canadien and won the bb Canada so why does it really matter is hes a list in usa or not?

E kind of funny how different routes staplers and kevmarts life took. Stapler is still a bad reg punting in games and youtube content when kmart binked and won the bb for 100k.

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

Itd be nice to see Kevin do something nice for Jaime.
Jaime was one of the first bigtime streamers, then brought Kev into the scene and hosted him, taught him everything, got stars sponsorship cuz of Jaimes good recommendation.

WIthout Jaime, Kevin wouldnt be where he is today, lol then Kev stiffs Jaime and they have a falling out. Kev stiffs Matt too on the 300 buck liveament he was supposed to put him in. Then Kevin didnt use twitch donos to buy that new desk .He has the world just given to him and he doesnt even know it. Pretty incredible

What's up with Kevin making the point constantly that he isn't a pro poker player yet both times he's competed on BB, his occupation was presented as a pro poker player? He even gave a big spiel on tv about how he loves being a pro.

because it sounds more interesting for TV than listing him as "unemployed".

I'd guess it's because in Canada you don't have to pay income tax on winnings from casual gambling but you do if you are a professional gambler.

Belgium has a similar tax policy and if you watch last year's WSOP coverage Kenny Halleart would constantly point out that he was a tournament director for the same reason.

But he said he was Pro on a TV show???


They could have just called him a Twitch streamer, which is what he calls himself on on his Twitch stream.

I'm sure a version of this conversation happened at some point...

Producer: So where do you work now?
Kevin: I'm a professional streamer.
Producer: A what?
Kevin: On Twitch.
Producer: On what?
Kevin: Twitch. People play video games there and can make money at it.
Producer: What do you play?
Kevin: Poker
Producer: Oh thank god. We are going to call you a professional poker player.

This. Haven't heard anything like that. I'm pretty sure they are all going to be on Streamboat 2, so what is this about? Kevin tweeted on July 4 about the Staples bros and their weight loss bet, rooting them on.

Big Brother champion Kevin Martin is back with a glossy new set-up and solid viewing figures.

He looks healthy and much more comfortable in his own skin than before, good to see.

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

Kevin is def no where near an A list celebrity lmao F list or D list at best, I have a good friend whos family member was on the show with him and has hanged out with Kevin & crew afterwards, haven't heard 1 bad word about him or or any juicy gossip but they confirmed basically what Kmart would say on stream about BB messing with some1 mentally & that it wasn't worth it at all being on the show (Kmart probably has changed his opinion now that he won)

my friends family member kinda wishes they were never on the show and they did quite well but basically got paid min. wage and even after being 1 of the more polarizing figures on the season it only got them about a few thousand instagram followers & few thousand twitter followers & many creepy stalkish dm's, i'm pretty sure that not many or probably none of the people that watch BB/fans of BB are now tuning in to watch Kmart stream poker
he also should stop being such a cheap ass and play some bigger buy in tourneys

Hes not up that much through actual poker. He plays $215 sunday million every week. What are you expecting him to be playing the Super Tuesday every week?

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

IN regards to Kevins buy ins, I will give him credit. He plays what he can beat and where he feels he belongs. Its just smart. If Kevin played a 3 thousand dollar highstake schedle everyday he will lose 5 figures a month guaranteed. His game cant compete at that level. The Sunday mill is great value and full of satty fish so its ok.

The cheapness though makes me not like him. I think its pathetic . He has a big awakening whenever the pokerstars gravytrain ends and he doesnt have life gifted to him anymore.
Hope for his sake hes saving all the ffree money he gets given to him for doing nothing at all any of other grinders do on a daily basis.

Stilll owe Matt a 300 dollar stake. Still never bought that deck he promised. Stiffed Jaime for rent many months ago. HE puts on acts constantly to show off.
Its stil unclear what he did to make Trogga leave

Seems about right. I lost count how many times he ordered takeout without offering money and had a friend or Pili run and get him food.

Haters gonna hate. He's just a great streamer, and thats why pokerstars signed him. In terms of poker he isn't any better then most mid staked regs, but 99% of then cannot stream as well as him and/ or have the charisma of him.
