While most people spent the summer submerged in PokerGO live streams and event replays of World Series of Poker events, tons of original content also debuted on poker’s premier subscription platform. That original content is available on-demand and after the first of many new Pokerography episodes dropped earlier this summer, the rollout continues with three more this week.
Pokerography gives fans a unique look into the lives of poker’s biggest names and Twitch streamer extraordinaire Jason Somerville is the focus of the newest Pokerography episode. The poker prodigy got his start playing online freerolls and quickly built up a bankroll to compete at higher stakes and in the live arena.
Before Somerville could legally play live in the United States, he battled a life-threatening illness and before he won his first-career World Series of Poker bracelet, American online poker player’s lives, including Somerville’s, were turned upside down by Black Friday.
Instead of allow Black Friday to halt his career though, Somerville rose from the ashes and began to run it up. What started as a bankroll challenge on YouTube has now turned into one of the poker world’s most popular streams. Somerville has brought tons of new players to the game and his Run It Up streams and brand earned Somerville a sponsorship with PokerStars.
