In 2010, Matt Jarvis achieved one of the biggest milestones of his career when he made the final table of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event. While he failed to capture the top prize in that massive tournament, his final hand went down in history as among the most memorable WSOP hands ever, and that inspired him to create a new app that would give players a unique, real-life tournament experience.
Cash Live Poker App: How It Works
Jarvis, a now retired poker pro, recently launched Cash Live Poker, an app that features live-streamed tournaments running twice each day, which players can enter for free. The tournaments are hosted by a line-up of live dealers, with Jarvis himself also calling the action occasionally.
The tournaments, which begin at 6 pm and 9 pm daily, adopt an “all-in or fold” format. Players don’t need to pay anything to take part in the tournaments, but they can win real cash prizes.
To enter the tournaments, players must first download the app which is currently available at the App Store. It will also be made available for Android users soon. Upon opening the app, players will be taken to the middle of the tournament. Players will go through preliminary rounds before reaching the final table. During each round, they can see the flop for free, and they are only given two choices: to go all-in or fold.
Players are allowed to fold up to three times during the preliminary rounds. The top five players are assured a spot in the final table, with the top 185 also taking home some cash. The action gets more intense and fun at the finale, as players compete in game-show style. The presence of live hosts also make the competition feel more real.
The app has been getting positive reviews so far, and even the top pros are enjoying the tournaments. Joey Ingram, a consultant and investor for Cash Live Poker, is all praises for the new app for the unique experience it gives to players. Ingram has tried playing the fast-paced tournaments himself and according to him, they’re super intense and a lot of fun, especially if you win.
Apart from Ingram, several other elite players have joined Cash Live Poker as investors, including Phil Hellmuth, Dan “Jungleman” Cates, and Kevin Martin.
Become the Star of the Show
According to Jarvis, the app was designed to cater to all types of players – from the beginners and amateurs, to the experienced pros, and even those who have never played poker before. Jarvis said their main aim is give a fun, exciting experience for everyone, with the finalists being the “stars of the show”.
The set-up is different from a typical online poker tournament. With Cash Live Poker, players get the chance to have their name called out by the live host in the middle of the game when they make a big hand, making them feel like a star in a televised game show. Not only that, players also get the chance to compete with some of the best players in the game, including the Cash Live Poker investors.
Monthly Leaderboard
Apart from the prizes on offer at tournaments on the Cash Live Poker app, players can win more via a monthly leaderboard which awards $300 extra cash to the top three winners from each month. The top player will also be invited to a spotlight interview on Cash Live Poker’s various social media channels.
Looking back on his 2010 WSOP Main Event final table performance, Jarvis said he knew that there was really something in that final hand that established an emotional connection with people, and he’s keen on recreating that experience via the Cash Live Poker app.
Jarvis is a native of Richmond, British Columbia. His live tournament record dates back to 2008. Throughout his career, the 36-year-old has amassed more than $2.6 million in total live earnings. He is also popular in the online poker sphere, having played under the nickname “Jarfish” on PokerStars, Full Tilt, and Absolute Poker.
