Kevin Martin quits professional poker
After winning in Big Brother show, Canadian poker pro Kevin Martin became very popular on Twitch. Despite his popularity, Kevin said that he quits poker.
The player announced that he has already reached everything that he planned in the game and it is time to move to new things. He managed to be the member of PokerStars Team Pro and PartyPoker in his poker career.
Kevin began to stream on Twitch as unprofitable player, but every day he played better and better. Over the past four years, he won six events and floated into the money dozens of times. Martin has 84 000 subscribers on his channel, and he thanked them in a video message:
It's been an amazing ride!— Kevin Martin (@KevinRobMartin) 5 сентября 2019 г.

Some viewers were critical of such statement. In due time, Douglas Polk, Vanessa Selbst and Fedor Holz reported about their quitting, but we still see them at the poker tables.
Martin added that he is now interested in other areas of life. At the same time, Kevin doesn’t exclude the possibility of returning to big poker.
