Weekly October 1st
You didn’t think I was going to forget the weekly did you?
I’m at the airport in San Diego now. I can genuinely say I really missed you guys haha. Streaming and talking to you guys has been the core of my day for months now. Funny thing is that being away for 4 days this week showed me that not going to WSOP was a good decision. I would never want to miss that long. Streaming is my passion. The plan for this week was to just learn a lot about the industrial side of Twitch. I think it’s important if you want to grow your channel to understand how this beast works. I got here late Wednesday and after a stroll through downtown decided to go bed early. I went one day earlier so I could have a recovery day to battle jet-lag so I wouldn’t be fucked all first day of TwitchCon. In the morning on Thursday I went for (best hangover medicine trust me). After that I met up with Scott Ball and his gf Blair. Scott is the poker directory manager for Twitch. He is really passionate about poker and is a good player himself. He has some cool ideas and it was just nice to see what we can do together to grow poker in Twitch as well as my channel!
There we so many fucking people here holy shit. I went inside the convention center to look at the Pokerstars booth and we discussed a bit what was gonna happen. There were tons of panels in different rooms discussing various topics. The first one I attended was the Zeldathon. They talked about streaming for charity and what to look out for. I really want to do stuff like this in the near future so was really motivating. When I came down I didn’t know what was happening. Thousands of people. Everyone was so nice and the vibe was great. Gamers apparently like to hug each other which makes it even more cute.
I went with Mark and Parker to drink some beers in a nice little bar before the Party. The player party was in the Padres base ball stadium which was incredible as far location went. Party was pretty decent with people like T-Pain and Aoki and Darude performing. We ended up at Jason Somerville’s room with everyone drinking some beers and wine and just having some laughs.
Today was a lot of the same at the booth. Meeting people, shaking hands. I’m glad to be going home now though. I cant wait to get back into it. I will probably stream on tuesday. I have a 20 hour trip coming up now. Expect the same kind.
And this is where my laptop battery was dead lol.
I had a really nice flight. Not so hard as I had a fantastic upgrade. Check me out on snapchat guys, I just made one and have been using it a lot; lexveldhuis
I will be streaming in 30 minutes. See you then for the rest of the stories!!
