More specifically, sites have to be submitted for approval and must be permitted by Google Ads and adhere to local laws.
A number of poker streamers have seen their videos removed from the platform in the last year for violating protocol.
Is Mike “The Mouth” Matusow Leaving Poker?
“I’ve always loved poker but this extended break + craziness of the world has me reevaluating if it’s really what I want to do forever. For the first time ever I find myself daydreaming of walking away & doing something else.”
Matusow was recently diagnosed as “clinically insane” by a number of his own followers, also known as “Twitter psychologists”. Of course he’s not really insane.
“The Mouth” often takes a lot of flack for his stance on politics and propensity to support US President Donald Trump while taking on current affairs such as the recent nationwide protests against racial injustice in the US.
