Get to know BuffaloPrime & join his stream!
Do you enjoy watching others play poker? Streaming, or watching people play games online, has become a worldwide sensation in recent years, and poker in particular is getting increasingly popular. One of our players, BuffaloPrime, is now airing Replay Poker on his Twitch channel every Sunday, and you can be a part of the excitement! Read on to learn more about Buffalo and how you can earn free chips by following his channel.
BuffaloPrime is from Detroit, Michigan, where he lives with his wife, his newborn son, and an adorable Australian Shepherd. He works in Human Resources, and outside of gaming, he’s a fan of sports, food, and fashion.
Twitch is where Buffalo does most of his streaming. If you’re not familiar with Twitch, it’s a massive website dedicated to streamers. While the main focus is video games, some people stream knitting, painting, or putting together puzzles. There’s even a channel dedicated to Bob Ross videos. There’s something for everyone!
It’s free, and it’s easy to sign up — all you have to do is navigate over to https://www.twitch.tv/ then click “Sign up” in the upper right-hand corner. From there, you can follow any streamer or channel that may interest you by clicking on the heart at the top of their page, and you’ll get updates whenever they go live.
Buffalo got his start on Twitch after watching his cousin “speedrunning” (playing video games as quickly as possible), and he fell in love with the welcoming, active community. He kicked off his own stream by speedrunning Sonic Adventure 2 back in January of 2016. After doing runs of that game and Mario Party 2 for nearly two years, he built up a positive community of other streamers and speedrunners.
Lately, Buffalo has been branching out a bit more, engaging with his followers by playing multiplayer games like Fortnite, Warframe, and, of course, poker!
A lifelong poker player, BuffaloPrime has been into the game for as long as he can remember. He started off playing with his dad as a kid, and even played against the computer within other video games, like Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto! While Buffalo hasn’t played poker professionally, he has enjoyed playing with his stream’s followers, and plans to join the tables at his local casino. “I think the community around poker is a lot of fun. I’ve always been a fan of statistics and mind games, so poker really appeals to me,” he says of the game.
Buffalo discovered Replay Poker when he was looking for a good site to play with his community. “Most of the websites I found were either pay to play, or had shady money areas to it. I wanted a completely free experience for my stream. So I found Replay Poker through a few web searches, and I couldn’t ask for anything better!”
