Popular Twitch.TV streamer loses $5,000 in a single blackjack hand
Posted by Defrag, May 22
Not strictly poker related, but this blew all over internet - one of the most popular streamers, Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris, played online blackjack earlier this week, using a betting site that features live dealers. In the very last hand of his betting spree he decided to place a maximum bet of $5,000, going with a simple "all-in or nothing".

The stream was peaking at around 45,000 viewers when the key hand happened and ended the stream shortly after it was over. It's been a real roller-coaster for Sodapoppin, who's been playing live blackjack for last 2 weeks on - his streaming numbers went up by huge margin during that time, to the point his stream single-handedly put Blackjack as the top 3 most popular game watched on during his streaming sessions. However, we are not sure if that will still compensate all the cash he lost. Hopefully Morris learned his lesson and won't be trying to win the money back playing Blackjack.

Watch the video here (the mentioned hand starts at 2:10 mark):

Are Spin&Go'es beatable or not?
Written by: Defrag, April 13
Introduction to Spin&Go tournaments(skip that if you know how they work)
When Spin&Go tournaments were introduced there was an enormous migration of recreational players from normal Sit&go tournaments to Spin&go format - it's a perfect format to attract that kind of players.
If you don't know how they work - each tournament is 3-max, winner-take-all, hyper turbo Sit&go with a random prize pool. Buy-ins range from $1 to $60, and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 3,000 times your buy-in. The highest multiplies are obviously super rare (1 of 100,000 for the 3,000xbuy-in, even the 240x multiplier have a chance of just 5 out of 100,000).

The games are insanely fast, give a thrill of emotion through the random prize pool and that's what recreational players were looking for. Jackpot was hit by PokerStars.
