Tomorrow we’ll have a brand new PokerStars Ambassador to tell you about as the winner Dare2Stream is to be unveiled live on the PokerStars Twitch channel.
The competition, which ran from October 23 to December 12, saw hundreds of Twitch streamers throw their hats in the ring in a bid to win a one-year contract with PokerStars and become the next red spade.
Now it’s all over and there’s nothing left to do but let Mason “pyefacepoker” Pye and Georgina “GJReggie” James announce the winner. Make sure you tune in tomorrow for the announcement.
Best of luck to everyone who entered. Here’s a look through some final thoughts from just a handful of the many contestants:

On a personal note- I’m proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish throughout the 51 days of the competition. The community has grown & I’ve met so many kind and awesome people. I poured my heart and soul into this event and I’m content with the effort I put forth. #Dare2Stream pic.twitter.com/muq7dLgIKC

I just wanted to say thank you to @GJReggie @RichyRobRR @fergrberger and @PokerStars for having me in this #Dare2Stream, I streamed much more near the start of the competition and everyone was so supportive. I had fun participating and can’t wait to see who gets the next spade!

#Dare2Stream finished yesterday and we are absolutely delighted we took part. Enjoyed it thoroughly, had some great results and most of all met some quality people. Regardless, we will be sticking around and growing the channel and our poker levels throughout 2022 @PokerStars

We all know how stressful some Sunday sessions can be. With $35K in buy-ins across the day (including an early bust-out from the $10K EPT High Roller), Lex Veldhuis let out his frustrations the only way he could.
Warning – not suitable for work!
But the tide began to turn in the $1K Supersonic, one of the last tournaments of the day.
A short time later (it’s a hyper turbo, after all) Lex took things down to heads-up.
And ultimately, a nice and clean ending shipped all the chips Lex’s way.
Crazy day yesterday. Had $35k in buy-ins and $55k in cashes. Ended up winning the $1k Sonic for $18k.
Really nice spot here for today as well. Stream is going to be live in a few hours. Playing other tournaments as well so full stream 💪 pic.twitter.com/lE51CgLF8P

Spraggy hits a royal flush!
What a hold.
Imagine being this good at poker tournaments.
No! No! Why? YESSS!
C’mon the lads.
Bink on the bubble.
