So this must be why Jaime Staples left PokerStars. I'm guessing they're going to sign him next.

Pretty sure Jaime had non-compete clause in his contract and won't be signing a new one just yet.

A non compete clause is probably not enforceable so I don't think thats true.

No idea about enforceability, so have to take your word for it

Is his nickname "KidNepotism?" LOL well it does take a ton of work to build up a twitch channel regardless.

If you think that he didn't put in the work and that he's actually one of the more talented streamers out there then you haven't been paying attention.

Interesting thing with partypokers team online terms is that their players can play on any site on stream just has to focus on party tables (from matts stream)

vs pokerstars where it is stars exclusive cannot even play other sites off stream

Matt seems funny, talented, and relateable. And sure puts in the work. Good for him, well deserved.

Do Party really want their terrible software to be streamed?
The old software was so much better in 2006

It looks like they are just going through the twitch directory and asking streamers would you like to be in partypokers team.

idk ... maybe they hope, those guys gain fame. nevertheless, announcing the whole team at once seems better, than this kind of string betting. on the other hand, maybe they think the thirst lounge (perkins) deal helps them to push their own pros.

Fair play to the kid. Didnt he turn about 20bucks into $70k?

He doesnt have the charisma of a Tonka or a Doug Polk, but at least he's a winning player
