Twitch streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has officially partnered up with Postmates food delivery service.

After being a customer of their for years, the former CSGO pro player finally decided to go beyond just using them as a service provider.

Shroud’s fondness for Postmates is well documented as he has made over 161 orders so far this year, sometimes even getting food delivered up to four times a day.

“Postmates has been a lifesaver for me. I stream for hours every day and being able to rely on Postmates to deliver food to me fast has been huge for ensuring I have the fuel I’ve needed to get through the grind. Excited to announce a full partnership with a service I already use all the time!”

The streamer’s most frequent order over the years have been burritos, and his favorite selection of food are Korean, American, and fast food.

Typically, Shroud’s go-to orders throughout the day are:

  • 9 AM: Two eggs and french toast
  • 2 PM: BBQ pork lunch and pan-fried rice cake
  • 5 PM: Burrito, chips and guacamole 
  • 10 PM: Hershey’s bar, Slurpee and Haagen Dazs vanilla pint

That clearly shows that Postmates plays a very important role in sustaining one of the industry’s top gamers.

Shroud’s newly formed partnership with Postmates will not only be beneficial for him, but also to his viewers, followers, and fans, who will be receiving surprises during streams, including free deliveries, food, and more.

Shroud will also get his own personal code in the app; all new Postmates users can get $100 in free delivery credits simply by typing “SHROUD” in the promotional code box after making a new account.

Seven-time Tetris World Champion Jonas Neubauer died at the age of 39 on January 4 after a sudden medical emergency.

The American, an icon of the game, won seven of the first eight Classic Tetris World Championships (CTWC) between 2010 and 2017, finishing as runner-up in 2014 and 2018.

His influence extended far beyond his achievements in the game, as he inspired the competitors around him. In a 2018 interview with VICE, now two-time World Champion Joseph Saelee said: “I would say most of my gameplay is based off Jonas’s gameplay. I try to play exactly like him for the most part.”

Jonas was also a popular Twitch streamer, with 25k followers. Such was his greatness, he went viral in 2018 after accidentally breaking the then world record for quickest time to reach 300,000 points, achieving the feat in 1 minute and 57 seconds.

Tributes pour in for Jonas Neubauer

News of his passing was announced on his Twitter account on January 9. The message said: “He was the absolute best. We are devastated, overwhelmed with grief, and we already miss him dearly.”

The news sent shockwaves around the world of esports and gaming, with tributes pouring in to commemorate Jonas and his achievements.

Tetris paid tribute, writing “Jonas Neubauer was one of the greatest classic Tetris players of all time in skill, spirit, and kindness.”

Joseph Saelee, who stunned Jonas to win the 2018 CTWC, left a simple message that said: “Rest In Peace, Jonas.”

TSM chess grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura said: “I only had the opportunity to meet him once, but he was a very kind person who had a great enthusiasm for all games from tetris to chess and beyond.”

Chris Higgins, director of the documentary ‘Best of Five: The Tetris Champions’, described him as a “loyal son, great husband, staunch friend.”

One fan has created a digital card, free for all to sign, which will be sent to Jonas’ family, with the opportunity for people to leave a message to one of the greats of esports.
