Meet The Upswing Poker Pros
Parker Talbot -"Tonkaaaap"

Parker Talbot aka tonkaaaap live on the felt.

Tonka is widely considered the best high stakes tournament streamer on Twitch, which makes him an ideal choice to create tournament content for members of The Upswing Lab.

Parker “tonkaaaap” Talbot has been an online tournament player for seven years now and his accomplishments demonstrate that he is a serious force to be reckoned with at the table.

Tonka has over $3 million in online cashes, most notably a 2nd place SCOOP-M finish for $109k and a Super Tuesday win for $101k. On PokerStars alone, Tonka has nearly 3,000 cashes for over $2,679,000.

Beyond his poker skills, Tonka’s personable, at times cynical attitude encourages viewers to tune in stream after stream.

In 2017, Tonka signed on with 888Poker as their newest ambassador and his Twitch stream has shown no signs of slowing in popularity.

There are lots of players grinding tournaments these days, but very few discovered the passion to love and study the game in the way that Tonka has. He has always stressed that putting in the work away from the table is incredibly important–work that shows in his results.

The work ethic that made all of Tonka’s success possible is what makes this a very exciting time for Lab members – who will be getting an in-depth look at what he’s learned throughout his career.
