Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has had viewers jump into his Twitch channel in the hundreds of thousands since streaming Valorant, but his future on the platform appears uncertain. 

The popular variety streamer has had a huge part to play in a number of games blowing up in recent times, including Sea of Thieves, GTA RP, Jump Master, and Escape from Tarkov, making him one of Twitch’s biggest assets.

However, with Microsoft looking to grow Mixer year on year, it’s generated a real fight between the two to sign top stars down to big deals – as seen with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, who sealed big money contracts with the rival company. Next, though, might be summit. At least, that’s what some fans are thinking.

The leader of the 1G Squad has an enormous following on his Twitch channel, amounting to over 5.2 million at the time of writing, with thousands of them subscribing to his channel per month.

Back in January, the streamer hinted at big changes coming up for him and his community, claiming that “one of the biggest moments of my life is happening somewhat soon.” That said, his followers haven’t really heard much more than that since.

One user put him on his toes about his thoughts on Mixer during a broadcast on April 19, and his answer left the door wipe open. Summit replied: “Listen, I’m obviously not going to be talking about my decisions until they get officially announced, but yeah, I think for the time being we just leave it at that.”

The former CS:GO player didn’t leave it there, though, dropping another hint that something big will be announced in the near future. He added: “Hit me up in a couple of weeks or like a month with the same question, and I’ll give you an answer.”

Whether he will be making the move to Mixer or not remains to be seen, but should he move over, it will be interesting to see how many of his loyal supporters on Twitch will jump across with him.

On October 9, Logan Paul opened up a rare 1st Edition Pokemon booster box worth $216k. Over 300,000 viewers tuned into the livestream as the YouTuber pulled a shadowless Charizard worth $85k. Here is every notable TCG card that was pulled, and who won the most.

In September, Logan Paul surprised millions of fans when he revealed he’d spent an “estate’s worth” of money on Pokemon cards. The 25-year-old influencer explained that the Nintendo collectibles had become the new “art” worth investing in.

To celebrate, he bought a rare 1st Edition booster box of the 1999 base set, and sold each pack individually to buyers such as YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson. On October 9, the star opened the box live, and here are the results of what was pulled during the epic event.

Over 300k viewers tuned in to watch the YouTuber open up the incredibly rare Pokemon booster box. The star had sold each pack individually for $11,111, which netted him around a $200k profit.

Several major cards were pulled during the livestream, such as the yellow cheek Pikachu which can fetch $3–$5k, a Chansey worth up to $30k, and a Charizard estimated to be worth $65-85k. They’re worth even more because they are “shadowless” – cards that don’t have a shadow running down the right hand side of the art box.

Given that these are all pristine 1st Edition, even common cards are worth something. And of course, the values listed below are estimates which will ultimately be determined by grading. Here is everything that was pulled during the live event, and who – if notable – won them.

The live opening proves how massive the Pokemon Trading Card has become. Decades later, the hobby has seen an explosion in interest, and items have skyrocketed in value. If nothing else, it was a treat for many fans to see something from 1999 be opened for the very first time.
