Poker began as a fun pastime for Sebastian Huber. Together, him and his friends created their own poker table and began playing each other just for the enjoyment of the game.
Eventually, Sebastian started playing poker full-time alongside studying for his business psychology degree in Vienna. Before long, he found himself at his first poker tournament. He was still a rookie, and somewhat amazed to find himself in the Bahamas playing at the 2017/18 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA).
Years later, he discovered Twitch poker and began streaming online. Streaming on Twitch proved to be a decisive step in Sebastian’s poker career. Thanks to the encouragement he received from the online poker community, he found himself motivated to keep on improving at the game, loving every second of the experience.
He then went on to win the Saturday Duel back-to-back after focusing on Heads-Up Total KO tournaments on PokerStars, something he treasures as one of the proudest moments in his career.
In the 2022 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), the Austrian won his first-ever WCOOP title, in a series where he found himself competing with the world’s most consistent players in the Player of the Series Leader Board.
His best streaming moment, however, came a year before this. Sebastian was crowned the winner of Dare2Stream, a competition designed seeking to find the next PokerStars Team Pro ambassador, also winning a Platinum Pass to the 2023 PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC).
For Sebastian, the best part of streaming is being able to connect with people from across the world. He feels that streaming is the best thing to make poker bigger and better, and now he’s an ambassador, he hopes to use the opportunity to work with other great streamers and bring more people into the world of poker. He also hopes to develop his own game even further and enhance the quality and quantity of his own content as he goes.
Sebastian plays online poker exclusively at PokerStars, where he plays under the username ‘peace&loove’.
