Popular streamer Parker Talbot aka tonkaaaap becomes free agent after parting ways with 888 Poker.Earlier today, Parker "tonkaaaap" Talbot, one of the most popular poker streamers on Twitch.tv, announced that he and 888 Poker had parted ways after two years.

In January of 2017, 888 Poker announced that they had signed Talbot to become one of their Ambassadors. Talbot represented 888 Poker well during his two years with the company, as he was able to put up some big scores, both on the live tournament circuit and online.

Talbot has had some big scores as of late, including chopping the "Sunday Million" on Pokerstars and collecting $203,626 for a sixth place finish in the EPT Prague main event.


Over the past couple of weeks, Talbot, Jaime Staples and Jeff Gross have all announced that they are parting ways with their sponsors, as Talbot left 888 Poker and both Staples and Gross parted ways with Pokerstars.
