‘There is no poker game that we wouldn’t want to try out and learn from…’ – INTERVIEW WITH OP-POKER

CheckDecide is kicking off the 1st Custom Felt Competition this week!

Our partners use the replayer with customized skins, now it’s time to vote whose table looks the coolest!

We have 16 competitors – biggest names and rising stars, companies and individuals alike.

In the first match OP-Poker meets Pocarr.

Match #1 in the Custom Felt Competition

OP-Poker is a group of young streamers: Eva, James and Nick who form a unique team in the streamer community.

How do you know each other, when did you start streaming?

Nick and James met when they were both students at Brighton University. A couple years down the line they both wanted to start a poker-related stream and felt the release of PokerStars Power Up offered an opportunity to create unique content for Twitch and YouTube – the official starting point for the stream was November 2017. Community and Content Manager Eva soon joined to help grow the “alternative” poker community.

How would you describe your services, what makes OP-Poker special amongst the streamers?

We believe one of the most important characteristics of a successful poker player is being fast to adapt to changes, so we are happy to jump into any new format released: Spin & Go, 6+ Hold’em, Swap Hold’em, Grand Tour… We help our poker players figure out the basic adjustments these new games require. 

Our streams are often designed around playing less tables and explaining thought processes. There is no poker game that we wouldn’t want to try out and learn from.

What kind of content can we expect to see from you at CheckDecide?

The best spots to look at are often the ones with the highest pressure attached. Expect us to share our big Spin & Go multipliers & any big tournament final tables we find ourselves in. Nick recently played a Final sprint for Grand Tour that’s already up there!

Do you like your chances in the Custom Felt Competition against Pocarr? 🙂


At least we know how to spell…

… 😀 Thanks a lot for the interview & best of luck at the tables!
