Poker Player Hacked on Twitch

A poker player broadcasting his game on Twitch ended up sharing his game session with viewers around the world -- who ended up watching the man get hacked.

Charlie "Epiphany77" Carrel was the victim of the hack after a slip up revealed a bit of personal information on screen. After seeing this, a player named Kiree11 was able to log into Carrel's account and mess around with the account. It is estimated that roughly 5,300 people watched the breach occur.

After noticing the breach, Carrel consulted with PokerStars and ended up resuming his play session. He ended up winning $7,000 in the play session. PokerStars has temporarily suspended both player accounts while they review the incident.
