Arlie Shaban a former Big Brother 2 Canada contestant streamed 1,000 hours of poker over 125 continuous days
Arlie started his stream on Monday November 6, 2017 with a goal of streaming for 50 days straight. That goal soon stretched to 100 consecutive days followed by his final goal of 125 days which he hit on Saturday March 10, 2018.
When Arlie began his self-assigned challenge, his number of Twitch subscribers sat at approximately 140. Over four months and 1,000 hours of streaming later, he is reaping the rewards of his efforts with a subscriber count of almost 50 times his original at 6,936.
Arlie is not the first person to take part in a poker stream marathon. Although not quiet at the level of Arlie: In October 2016, Jaime Staples, Jeff Gross, Kevin Martin and Jamie Staples between them streamed for 169 continuous hours raising over $21,000 in the process for the Michael Phelps foundation
