Brad Owen is a long-time professional poker player and streamer from California as well as partner and co-producer of the popular show, Poker At The Lodge.  He was one of the first live poker streamers, starting with an iPhone 5, and is now one of the most popular live poker streamers on YouTube, taking his viewers from mid-stakes cash games to tournaments all around the world. 

Brad Owen – Early Poker Days

Brad was first introduced to poker as a teenager when his dad got a job working at a casino. In order to learn all the games, the employees received software to play against simulated opponents, it was called “Hoyle Casino”. Brad took a liking to poker and would come home every day and play limit hold’em tournaments. He started to play against his older brother and his college friends when he was still in school and says it was one of the only things he could beat his brother at, which he quite enjoyed.

In 2012 Brad moved to Las Vegas with $10,000 and set out to become a professional poker player. For a few months, he was sustaining himself and “living the dream” as he says, until he moved to Los Angeles for friends and a new girlfriend, and went broke. Brad had to move back home with his parents and opt to get a traditional job. 

After finding himself working at an accounting firm and despising his job, Brad decided to take a risk and have another shot at making a career out of poker. 

Brad Owen Streaming

In December 2016, Brad released his first poker vlog. His aim was to fill the niche for low to mid-stakes poker content. Brad was a pioneer for low-stakes live poker vlogging. He started filming vlogs on his iPhone 5 back in 2013, sneaking the fact that he was recording his hands and hoping not to be caught. Fast forward to the present and Brad Owen now has over six hundred thousand subscribers on YouTube with over three million views on his most popular video. Brad and a handful of others set the foundation for live poker vlogging as we know it today.

Brad Owen is primarily known for his YouTube poker vlogs, but he has also streamed live poker sessions on Twitch in the past. He began streaming on Twitch in 2018 and continued to do so for a few years.

During his older live streams, Brad typically played low to mid-stakes cash games in Las Vegas and provided commentary on his thought process and strategy and has always been informative and engaging with his viewers.
