888poker has chosen not one but two new StreamTeam members as winners of the Stream On contest. There was supposed to be just one, but the pool of contestants was so strong that we picked one from the UK and one from Canada.

Both streamers battled through a field of 63 worthy candidates to claim the top prize of a year-long streaming contract each.

Our first-ever Stream On contest kicked off on 16 March and ran for a month, with streamers across the globe throwing their chips onto the poker table.

After public auditions, 34-year-olds Dave “Wursthandz” Brady from the UK and Darius “KomodoDragonJesus” Wajda from Manitoba, Canada, took top honours.

Welcome to the Team!

Both players are more than excited to join the 888poker StreamTeam family and fought hard to win.

For Brady, he feels honoured to join a community that supports streamers and hopes to do the team justice.

"I'm delighted to be joining the 888poker Stream Team. It really is an honour to be joining such a brilliant lineup of talented streamers, and I'm beyond happy to have been chosen as one of the winners of the competition."

“ I'd like to thank the community who were amazing in their support from start to finish of the competition, and I hope I can do justice to them!”

Wadja expressed how much he enjoyed the process and his excitement and anticipation of seeing what's next.

"I'm thrilled to be joining the 888poker stream team. When I joined Stream On, I wasn't sure what to expect. As the competition progressed, I got to know the team and their communities.”

“It quickly turned into one of the most fun months of poker I've ever had, and I can't wait to see what comes next."

Meet Wursthandz and KomodoDragonJesus

Dave “Wursthandz” Brady has final-tabled a few $109 buy-in events where he satellited his way in. After taking a break from streaming, he decided to make a comeback, partially due to the Stream On competition.

He put in the work, studying the game and training to improve – and has seen the results, both live and online.

He met some of his best friends in the poker community, including two groomsmen at his wedding – despite travelling from Canada and Holland to attend!

Despite training to be an on-call firefighter, Dave fulfilled the entry requirements and met the challenge!
