While Twitch seems to be all the rage among poker fans nowadays, there’s still a ton of great content for those that don’t have the time or inclination to spend hours each day watching an online stream not called Netflix or Hulu.
YouTube hosts dozens of great poker channels with regularly updated content that will keep your competitive juices flowing. Today we share 11 YouTube channels that you should be following.
Note that nearly all the channels in this list are those that frequently post new content. Sorry Jason Somerville.
If you want to improve your poker game, check out Jonathan Little’s YouTube channel. It is primarily strategy videos along with reviews of his play in the Global Poker League. Not as many “cutesy” videos as other pros but he makes up for that with some excellent strategy content.
