PartyPoker has been working very hard towards a new vertical that will see it claim a huge chunk of the online gaming market. The initiative is primarily aimed at Twitch audiences who make up an incredibly huge percentage of the live streaming market in both the United States and the rest of the world.

The most recent move that the online poker operator has made to ensure its success on the platform is a partnership agreement that it recently inked to become the main sponsor of high stakes poker and Esports entity, No-Limit Gaming.

The members of this all-star team aim to use their skills and admirable successes in the field of poker within the nascent and rapidly growing global esports industry. Other notable names linked to No Limit Gaming include Stefan Schillhabel, its founders, as well as poker pros like Rainer Kempe, Steffen Sontheimer, Manig Loeser, and Niall Farrell. Cumulatively, the entire poker player lineup has cashed in over $100 million with – Fedor is the top owner with a whopping $32,556,377 in tournament winning.

“NLG is very proud to have partypoker as our poker team’s main sponsor,” Schillhabel said in a recent statement. “We’re happy to be part of their Twitch plans and will try our best to support them to grow even bigger!”

According to Tom Waters, managing director of partypoker, the NLG crew represent the best in class in as far as global poker player rankings are concerned. He further noted that everyone at the online poker room is “excited to see where we can take the relationship throughout 2019.”
