The Poker World's First "Twitch Scandal"

Posted on 18 June 2015 by "T".

Twitch is great site for poker players who want to share their screens with the world while playing cash games and tournaments. The fact is that the streaming service has become extremly popular in the poker world in the past months thanks to, just to mention 3, Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand Grospellier and Jason Somerville - who are all kind enough to reveal some of their poker secrets.

There's a downside with twitch, though. American poker pro Casey "bigdogpckt5s" Jarzabek (picture) has experienced it. After finishing a poker session earlier this week, he decided to watch some porn videos on his computer. The problem was that the rest of the world could still see everything on his screen.

Jarzabek, who had his account banned by twitch following the incident, has responded to criticism and questions on a poker forum. He claims not to have been breaking any laws, but he also apologized if anyone has taken offence.

Jarzabek tweeted on Wednesday that twitch had removed his ban. Also, he tweeted that his wife would be joining him on his next twitch session to "debate this week's events". It remains to be seen if his mistake is good or bad for his twitch-career.

Not so sure if this is a scandal or just very embarrassing for this guy.He says he did not break any laws but when you consider some of the federal laws in the US concerning broadcasting porn then he may have been closer than he thought!

All I have to say about that is: lol. And how dumb! You have to be really tired to not realise you left twitch on before you go watch porn. But who knows, maybe he actually wanted people to come along for the ride Blink lmao

If I was the wife I would be mortified that my other half was so stupid.....and then slightly relieved that at least he wasn't dumb enough to leave his web cam on as well. Smile
Was the porn a reward for success or was it some kind of self flagellation for playing poorly? Smile

What was the scandal in this? He is obviously computer illiterate. Shouldn't even drive a car IMO, he can't decide between his hands properly Big Smile Poor guy, this thing must have cost him dearly with the missus...
But the words 'twitch carrier' just giving me goosebumps - it's so forced. Streaming is not going to be the next youtube in my opinion.
