Forbes Compares Esports and Online Poker

30 August, 2016 | 12:53 от Aleksandra


Recently Forbes published article where writer compares Esports and online poker

According to Forbes, the esports industry is expected to reach a total value of $463 million by the end of this year, while online poker currently has a total industry value of over $40 million.

Also in the article, the writer says that esports has many advantages over poker that will bring the growth of the industry.

“What esports has that poker did not is the ability to reach the masses around the world with ease. The esports industry has developed over a period of time where the Internet is accessible, and many have high-speed connections that allow them to tune in via mediums like Twitch to watch their favorite esports players participate against each other in their preferred video games.”

A lot of players make a successful transition from esports to poker. The same goes for Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, who has had a history in both.

Recently PokerStars has noticed the esports industry and teamed up with Team Liquid. As part of the deal, Team Liquid’s members will introduce poker to their audiences on the popular Twitch streaming platform.
