PogChamps, a Viral Hit on Media Platforms

PogChamps has become a massive hit on media platforms bringing some of the biggest content creators to chess. Voyboy and ItsHafu have won the earlier two editions of the event, who significantly improved throughout the tournament. The hallmark of the PogChamps series has been the significant improvement of the players’ chess abilities and auxiliary coaching content.

The craze for the event can be judged by the fact that top streamers had begun the preparation and started training with their coaches on their respective Twitch channels way before official matches had final announcements done. Thus, the coaches besides providing insight into their player’s preparation and helping them along will also do commentary for the live broadcasts.
