Give & get back: Big donation for Arlie!

Give and you will receive, the saying goes.

Arlie Shaban has given us plenty here at the PokerStars Blog over the last year or so, with the “12 Labors” being a highlight among many provided by the Twitch streamer.

Indeed, if it weren’t a term with negative connotations in poker, we might call the Team Pro a “donator” given all the time and energy he’s donated to making his stream one the more popular ones for poker.

Well, Arlie himself received quite a donation night before last — the largest he’s ever received, in fact.

As Arlie notes, yanksfan420 — a frequent viewer of his stream — gifted him a whopping $2,420 on Sunday night, earmarking the gift for him to play in the Spin & Go 20 challenge on PokerStars. Take a look at the moment Arlie saw the donation arrive:

What exactly is Spin & Go 20? Glad you asked, particularly since there’s still a few days left to join the fun.

Starting May 27, PokerStars players have been competing against each other in the Spin & Go 20 while vying for over $16,000 in prizes every single day. After opting into the challenge, results from the next 20 Spin & Go’s played (in a single day) earn players points enabling them to battle versus others on the Spin & Go 20 Leader Board. Players can play either a traditional Spin & Go or the new Spin & Go Max (with up to eight players) in order to earn points.

Points are awarded according to player finishes and which “tier” of Spin & Go was played, with four different tiers ranging from the lowest to highest limits. In fact, the competition has now moved into a second phase in which the points have been doubled, meaning from now through the last day of the promotion — June 16 — players can earn even more points for playing.

Finishing high on a given day’s leaderboard translates into cash prizes, ranging from $200 (for winning Tier 1) to $2,000 (for winning Tier 4) to lesser prizes for those finishing in the Top 50 in Tiers 1-3 and Top 20 in Tier 4.

As noted, yanksfan420 wants Arlie to take aim at a Tier 4 title by playing 20 of the $100 buy-in Spin & Go Max events. That effort will no doubt be producing more entertainment for Arlie’s viewers.

Like they say, give and you will receive.
