Team PokerStars Online Ben Spragg and Fintan Hand to Stream SCOOP Events
Team PokerStars Online members Ben Spragg and Fintan Hand are preparing to stream their Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) exploits on Twitch, giving viewers the opportunity to watch them in action in six stellar events.
Ben Spragg Hoping For a Win Live on Air
Spragg, who is known affectionately as “Spraggy,” has an army of more than 32,000 Twitch followers and claims that his superpower is him being fuelled by red wine. Spragg is looking forward to streaming some of his SCOOP play and loves playing the series because it gives “the opportunity to win life changing amounts of money every day.”
You’ll first get to see Spragg in action on May 16 at 6:00 p.m. BST in the SCOOP-40-L: $55 NLHE [8-Max, HR], $200K Gtd. Spragg will also be streaming on May 18 and May 19.
|Wed 16 May||6:00 p.m.||SCOOP-40-L: $55 NLHE [8-Max, HR], $200K Gtd|
|Fri 18 May||2:00 p.m.||SCOOP-47-M: $55 NLHE [8-Max], $100K Gtd|
|Sat 19 May||6:00 p.m.||SCOOP-53-L: $5.50 NLHE [8-Max, ProKO, Win the Button], $10K Gtd|
Tune into Spragg’s channel and be prepared to have your eardrums tantalised with an eclectic mix of music. Spragg loves to play a wide range of tunes while he live streams, from 80s classics by Duran Duran up to modern hip hop by the likes of Metro Boomin and 21 Savage! Spraggs was listening to some 80s tracks when he triumphed in the $16.50 Bounty Builder tournament on May 15, a result that netted him a total of $4,024.
Here’s hoping Spragg can take down a SCOOP event live on stream just as he did in a $7.50 buy-in progressive knockout tournament when he first began showcasing himself on Twitch.
Fintan Hand to Channel the Luck of the Irish
Ireland’s Fintan “easywithaces” Hand is also streaming three SCOOP events on his Twitch channel, which is rapidly approaching 30,000 followers. Hand recently finished fourth in the $109 Sunday Starter for $3,006 so should be full of confidence when it is his turn to be in the limelight.
Citing the luck of the Irish as his superpower, Hand is looking forward to playing some Lion King songs — yes really — as he reaches the final table of the trio of SCOOP events he will be streaming live. Check out the table below to learn when you can watch Hand in action.
|Thu 17 May||6:00 p.m.||SCOOP-45-L: $22 NLHE [8-Max, ProKO], $200K Gtd|
