Jason Somerville is one of the most accomplished poker players and strategists in poker today. An accomplished cash game and tournament player, Somerville is perhaps best known for his insightful podcasts and dedicated YouTube channel that focus on poker.
Somerville got interested in poker while watching poker on TV with his dad as a teenager and quickly started playing with his friends. He started playing online when legally allowed to do so, and used his free bonus and turned into six figures without ever having to deposit.
Somerville won his first bracelet in the 2011 WSOP $1,000 No Limit Hold’em, taking home just under $500k. While that’s his only bracelet to date, Somerville has reached four final tables and in his career so far amassed close to $4 million in winnings.
On the entertainment side of the industry, Somerville is one of the most recognizable and respected poker commentators. His popular web series, Run It Up, offered in-depth hand-by-hand analysis of real poker hands that he has played. Somerville’s YouTube channel has over 10,000 subscribers and over 1 million views.
