PokerNews gets first-ever online ambassador

The poker news website looks to add clout through Lukas “RobinPoker” Robinson

PokerNews recently named Lukas “RobinPoker” Robinson as its first ambassador, in a position where he’ll continue to stream his online poker action on Twitch. Robinson became the first player to stream over 1,000 hours of poker during 100 days in 2021. As PokerNews Ambassador, fans can continue to follow his poker play and receive many promotions and giveaways via his Twitch channel.

Last week, Robinson was a guest on the PokerNews Podcast. He talked with Chad Holloway about his new role as PokerNews Ambassador, online poker streaming, and playing with his dad at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event.

Robinson had many years of poker experience before he started streaming online in 2021. “I’m quite new, I’m quite the new ambassador. I quit my job, started in 2021, and started with GG(Poker) as part of their streamer platform.”

PokerStars streamer Arlie Shaban held the record of streaming 1,000 hours of poker in 125 days. After meeting him, Robinson was inspired to try for his own record. Robinson took his $8,000 bankroll and started streaming for 10 hours straight per day. “And sometimes you’ve just got to do risks in life, and obviously, I was lucky for it to work out,” he said.

Besides online streaming, Robinson has also been playing in many live tournaments. He played the WSOP Main Event with his dad, Peter Robinson, in 2021. He didn’t cash, but his dad won $15,000 for finishing 985th. The younger Robinson also plans to enter the World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship in December, where fans have a chance to play along with him in a WPT Global special promotion.
