April is set to be an incredible month for online poker. There’s an insane $150,000,000 guarantee on the GG Spring Festival. Another $100,000,000 guaranteed in Pokerstars’ SCOOP. Then there is Powerfest on partypoker, and of course all other poker tournaments on the regular schedule. For our Pokercode Stream Team members, it’s already going to be an intense month because of the insane amount of tournaments, but we decided to make it a little extra intense by putting four streamers in one house during the entire month of April.
Quirin ‘Q_Poker’ Heinz, Jan ‘HansiWurst’ Wagner, and Raffael ‘Pferdinho’ Crose all became part of the Pokercode Stream Team over the last couple of months. Right from the start, there was a natural fit within the Pokercode brand. When they were asked if they wanted to stream the April madness from a shared villa in Vienna, they quickly answered ‘Yes'. Tobias ‘Tobsen_Te9’ Eichenseher is another poker streamer and he’s close friends with ‘Q_Poker’. He'll be joining the house as well as the fourth and final member of what we call ‘Stream House’.
A little over four intense weeks will follow with not only plenty of poker action, but the necessary education as well. With access to the Pokercode Ultimate MTT Training Ground and close guidance of Pokercode founders Fedor Holz and Matthias Eibinger we created an environment for them to not only grow as poker streamers, but maybe even more important - as poker players.
It’s not just the webcams that the Stream House inhabitants brought with them to the villa in Vienna. We’ve added another four cameras and have a 24/7 stream running on the Pokercode channel where you can keep an eye on them, day and night.
Another way of interacting with the Stream House is tuning in to their personal streams. You can watch them one by one on their personal channels, or even check them out all at once through MultiTwitch when they’re broadcasting at the same time. Especially with some deep runs looming in one of the big tournament series happening in April.
While the Pokercode stream is running 24/7 in the Stream House we can’t expect the same from our players. ‘Tobsen_Te9’ and ‘HansiWurst’ will be grinding on most days starting between 3 and 5 pm CET. “I will most likely take off only one day of the week. But I’m not entirely sure which day yet.” Tobias told the Pokercode Blog. ‘Q_Poker’ is holding on to about the same schedule but he’s starting slightly later between 5 and 7 pm CET.
‘Pferdinho’ is taking it a little slower, allocating more time to studying with the Pokercode Ultimate MTT Training Ground. “It’s pretty hard to say how many days I’ll be streaming. It depends on a lot of things. The plan, at least, is to play 4 or 5 days a week and to start between 3 and 5 pm CET."
If you want to grind along with these guys and enjoy the GG Spring Festival on Pokercode by GGPoker, you’re in for something extra. Pokercode is giving away $30,000 over the course of three weeks while the GG Spring Festival is running. Don’t worry if you don’t enjoy the tournament grind, as you can still get your hands on some extra cash with our cash game leaderboards.
