The Bellagio Jumps on Twitch Bandwagon to Stream Live Poker

Twitch TV is giving a whole new meaning to the words "online poker" these days as more and more twitch channels are filled with people playing poker. Many of them feature online pros and grinders such as Jason Sommerville, Parker "tonkaaaa" Talbot, and Doug Polk, but the latest incarnation of twitch poker channel feature live games from some of the world's most famous card rooms - and they don't come any bigger than the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the latest to jump on the twitch bandwagon!

Recently there has been some great live coverage of high stakes cash games. Last month Poker Night in America streamed games featuring the likes of Phil Hellmuth, Doug Polk, Shaun Deeb, and Mike Dentale from the Sugar House Casino in Philidephia; 'Live at the Bike' regularly stream games of all sizes from the Bicycle Casino & Hotel in California and grabbed the headlines recently after a hand between Alec "traheho" Torreli and Doug "WCGRider" Polk created a strategic talking point; and even more recently the likes of Gus Hansen, Tony G, Ronny "1-ronnyr3" Kaiser, and Leon Tsoukernik were streamed in a huge PLO cash game at Tsoukernik's Kings Casino in Rozvadov, Prague.

According to the Bellagio's twitter page, they will start to stream cash games live on their twitch channel from the end of April. The stream will be live every Wednesday from 26th April at 7pm local time on their through to the start of the WSOP at the end of May at 7pm local time. Games streamed will play as high as $25/$50 on their "BellagioPOTS" Twitch page.

As yet there have been no famous poker names thrown into the mix, but considering its the Bellagio and that the streams will be taking place immediately prior to the WSOP it will be something of a surprise if a few superstar players aren't already being lined up to get the ball rolling!
