Ryan Depaulo has built a following on social media for competing in some of the biggest virtual poker tournaments, but his sweetest victory yet left him fired up after winning from a random parking lot in New Jersey.

When competing at the highest level, you often want as few distractions as possible. That’s why popular YouTuber and Twitch streamer Ryan Depaulo remained in his car throughout a July 13 tournament.


He remained there through the night with a simple laptop carefully resting atop his steering wheel. While the competition was fierce, Depaulo came away with one of his biggest victories ever in the World Series of Poker (WOSP). He finished first out of 1624 players, claiming the $159,563 grand prize along with a WOSP bracelet.

With a camera at the ready, not only did he record the winning moment for all to see, but he soon went live on Twitch. Viewers flooded in as the celebrations began and Depaulo declared himself “a legend.”


“Get the f**k out,” he said upon winning the final hand. As the sunrise pierced through the clouds at 6:30am, he jumped out of his car and yelled in excitement. “I’m a legend,” Depaulo screamed at New Jersey locals going about their morning business.

Before long he was back inside the vehicle and broadcasting to hundreds of viewers early in the morning. “Look at this setting…I was screaming in this parking lot and I have no f**king voice. There are people coming to work, in New Jersey, in a parking lot…this is where champions are made?” Depaulo sarcastically questioned.

“I don’t even know where I am in New Jersey right now. I don’t even know what day it is,” he said, lost in the adrenaline rush.


The victory not only comes with a huge chunk of change, but also provides Depaulo with his own WOSP bracelet. These highly coveted bracelets are only awarded to champions of WOSP events. “How do I have a f**king bracelet dude? I’m an internet clown.”

Given the ongoing global situation, WOSP tournaments were moved online for the foreseeable future. While many competed from the luxury of their homes, Depaulo stood out from the pack and it clearly paid off.


Despite the odds stacked against him, playing from a laptop in his car, the streamer now owns one of the most prestigious pieces of jewelry in competitive poker, along with $160k to potentially upgrade his setup with.


Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.


Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.


“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny's Twitch chat
Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.


“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.


“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
