If you have ever lived among a big family, you know there are times when all of a sudden you show up for a holiday dinner and discover you have three new aunts, six new cousins, and occasionally a new grandfather. Once you get used to the idea that you’re going to need more chairs and a French to English dictionary so you can talk to your new Aunty Monique, you often find these new family members are even better than the ones you have known for years.

With that in mind, meet the the 12 new members of the PokerStars streaming family.


Earlier today, PokerStars announced we have a whole new raft of aunt, uncles, and cousins, four of whom are going to be full-time PokerStars Ambassadors.

The new PokerStars Ambassadors are:

The new PokerStars Twitch streamers are:

Arlie Shaban, a man we put through some sometimes hell-ish hazing  challenges last year, said, “My whole life I’ve been obsessed with poker. To become an ambassador for PokerStars is something I never imagined possible,” said Shaban. “I’ve given poker everything I must give, even more than I thought possible, and to be awarded the biggest trophy of my career by becoming a PokerStars Ambassador is the actual dream come true.”

If you watch our PokerStars Twitch channel on a regular basis, you’ll already know the OP Poker and the trio of Mackenzie, Walsh and Reberc. They are big fans of PokerStars new game variants and spend a good amount of time discussing strategies to conquer the innovation behind each new games.

Rising Twitch stars Pye and James came to attention when they competed in Jason Somerville’s Platinum Pass giveaway to find the next big Twitch streamer. They didn’t make it to the Bahamas but are joining the Twitch family along with Hayward, whose creative streaming and interactive style set him apart on Twitch.

Pérez (Spain), Inclan (Spain), Enriquez (Spain), Bruneteaux (France) and Brecard (France) are names fans of the PokerStars streams in Southern Europe will be familiar with. They have been working with PokerStars for a while now and this will continue as they provide commentary, special streams and dedicated content for their audiences while representing the PokerStars spade.

We’ve got a graphic below introducing you to all of them.

In the meantime, welcome to all of our new family members! Make sure you save a turkey leg for me at the next big meal.
