WSOP has selected 14 content creators from various platforms, including Instagram, Twitch and YouTube, to face off against one another in a poker tournament this December.
Among those taking part are ZackTTG, a sports-focused YouTuber, Malena Tudi, who is active on Twitch and Instagram, and Nick Polom, Tudi’s partner and fellow Twitch streamer.
Adam LZ, Billy Mann, Collete Davis, Erik Conover, Jay Mendoza, Jiedel, Kenny Chao, Lauren Fitzmaurice and Stephania Ergemlidze, Matthew Meagher and Nick Antonyan round out the 14-influencer line-up.
Guy Ceder, General Manager of the WSOP app, remarked: “We are thrilled to finally announce the identities of the influencers taking part in our #RoadToTheTable campaign.
“We hope that everyone involved will enjoy playing poker as much as we do, and that the influencers’ journey towards becoming legendary poker players will inspire their audiences to explore the game too, both virtually and with real-life decks and chips.”
In the run up to their winter showdown, the 14 influencers will be coached by professional poker players and participate in content as part of the #RoadToTheTable campaign.
To kick things off, WSOP sent each influencer a “mystery box” containing a built-in video message welcoming them to the tournament, as well as special poker chips and card decks.
“I’ve been playing poker a lot recently, and since I’m new to the game my homies over at World Series of Poker sent me over this kit to help me become a better player,” said ZackTTG in a message to his Instagram followers.
