Each event streamed = 100 points

  • Players must tweet @ThrillOfPoker with a link to their stream.
  • Player’s poker alias and poker room must be clearly visible.
  • Stream must be publicly accessible worldwide.
  • Recorded stream must be accessible after the event has completed.

Most interesting daily stream = 250 points

  • Awarded at the network’s discretion, the player with the most thrilling stream each day of the series will win 250 points. The award may be given to the player with the best commentary, highest quality stream, best promotional gimmick, or anything else deemed to contribute to an exciting stream by MPN management.
