Becoming a Twitch Legend 

Although Parker wasn’t initially overly enthused about playing poker and streaming at the same time, it took the wise words from a friend to give it a go. He hasn’t looked back since.

“I'm generally upbeat as well, and I feed off of the energy of the chat,” Parker revealed in a recent interview. “I could never stream and be exciting or have energy if I didn't have all the muppets hanging out with me and rooting me on. Winning hundreds of thousands of dollars on occasion can also be very helpful.”

His opponents might run for the hills when they see him online at the tables, but his loyal fans can’t get enough of his banter as well as his solid poker play and strategy.
