August 26…was a very emotional day for me in poker land. I had been streaming for 5 hours and 45 minutes…wait. Things began to churn before that!
I would say, the stream started to churn from the beginning now that I think of it. Within an hour of starting up, I was visited by God’s Big Toe. Now, I am fairly certain I happen to have been lurking in his stream one day and discovered that he doesn’t care for 80’s “key-tar” and modern music which is what I generally have playing. (If I am wrong about the tunes, sorry.) To have him just stop in wasn’t the surprise. The fact he stayed was an amazing feeling. He is a solid player and a great mentor!
The feelsgoodman didn’t stop there. A long time community supporter, 87goodtimes, came to visit the stream. He has followed my stream since I started. This particular day, he subscribed to my channel! Whoot! But wait! His surprises didn’t end there…he began gifting subs and dropping bittie bombs!
As I am recovering from the generosity of 87goodtimes, I am paid a visit by more amazing community supporters/streamers! Into the stream float imiKristin, QuickQuestionNow, AliQOD, and Sevzor82 who proceed to have a bittie bomb war. As that began…others had to join… Chicago662, muthafnlifecoach, thatbreadthough , emerson1030, KyWildcatOgre, BrandoninFlorida, firerain2016. As the bittie war subsided, I was flooded again with gifted subs from Chicago662 and imiKristin!! At this point, I was feeling humble and ever so grateful! The feelsgoodman was amazing…and the tears were falling.
Do I dare say…there is still more!
The Raid!Violet’s reaction when she reads “Thanks VanessaKade for hosting the stream with 67 viewers!”
Just as Sevzor82 drops his string of bitties…I am honored with a raid from Vanessa Kade !! Ok, ok…breathe girl! Wait, hosting for 67…oh my! Then QuickQuestionNow gifts a sub to Vanessa before she even follows! I am so humbled and just flattered beyond words at this point. The love continues from this amazing community. Bitties continue to fall..Vanessa gifts 5 more subs followed by imiKristin gifting 5 subs and more bittie bombs by the community.
I am in tears of joy, appreciation, surprise, amazement, and more words than I can speak. In fact, the stream, at one point, asked me to speak…and I couldn’t. I had a knot in my throat and tears of happiness…the voice wasn’t happening.
This night was so incredible, I am certain to have inadvertently left out an acknowledgement. Please, if I did not list you and you were a part of this evening, please comment below so I can add you!

All of this love and support from the community gets me closer to my fund raising goal to attend TwitchCon – Thank You ALL! If you missed this stream, be sure to follow my channel (click the video link above). I have wonderful things in September while getting ready for the con. I also plan to stream while there. Should I find enough fellow poker players, would love to stream an IRL poker game beach side! Join us on the Veranda with coffee and see where the fun takes us!
All my love and gratitude,
I could not do my streams without the support of my mods – thank you!
