In another bold move, partypoker expanded their Team Online to include Kevin Martin. The former contestant on Big Brother Canada made a name for himself as streamer and he built a following with 80,00 devoted subscribers. Martin has been a pro since 2014 and streaming his sessions since 2015. He joins the recently expanded stable of partypoker Team Online that also include Jaime Staples and Jeff Gross.

The cold war continues between PokerStars and partypoker. This time, it's the hearts and minds of the streaming poker community that they are trying to win. All the cool kids are watching streams. It's part of the tech-savvy "now" culture of today combined with deeply rooted psychological desire to be a voyeur and watch other people live life while you chill out as a casual observer. Then again, watching other people play video games and poker is really one of the better ways to learn how to play and get better yourselves. And when you have someone who can explain complex topics in a quick and concise manner, then you have a rare combination of entertainer and teacher. And in Kevin Martin's case, he'll also become a great pitchman for partypoker.

Kevin Martin first caught the public's eye when he appeared on Canada's version of Big Brother. He began playing online poker and then stumbled upon the streaming realm. Martin had already live a portion of his life on camera and held up to the pressure and scrutiny. Streaming his sessions on Twitch were a perfect match for the likable guy who was super pumped up about playing poker.

Martin streamed on Twitch as he amassed his bankroll. PokerStars got a whiff and added Martin to join their growing ranks of streamers. Martin pitched the red spade for a couple of years before stepping aside. It did not take very long before partypoker stepped in. They saw huge value in Martin's 80K deep followers. The legion of KevMart fans were ready to sweat his action no matter where he played at Twitch.tv/KevinMartin.

Like several notable streamers, Martin and the red spade parted ways. Jaime Staples and Jeff Gross were among the big names who did not continue relationships with PokerStars. The writing was on the wall the day about his future the day after Staples stepped down. He streamed his first partypoker session. His brother Matt Staples became a member of the newly-established Team Online, which included a group of top content creators and online players. Jaime finally followed suit and joined his brother. Jeff Gross also headed to partypoker. The bona fide American pro didn't blink about joining the growing team of international players and streamers.

Now Kevin Martin rejoins forces with Jaime Staples and Jeff Gross. Plus, a whole slew of other names such as Matt Staples, Monika "HeyMonia" Zukowicz, Courtney "courtiebee" Gee, Steven "DWstevie" Kok, Hristivoje "ALLinPav" Pavlovic, Travis "dramaticdegen" Darroch, Patrick "XxXMLGPROXxX" Tardif , Alan "hotted89" Widmann, and Ryan "RSchoonbaert" Schoonbaert.
