Back in 2018, Nick Ivanovski wrote this insightful article about NASPA Tonight and Scrabble broadcasting in general.
David Koenig has represented the USA at every World Scrabble Championship since 2011 and at the 2008 Can-Am.
He has won many tournaments stateside, and in the UK he won the 2017 British Matchplay Scrabble Championship and the 2020 Grand Slam.
He has been ranked in the top 10 players in both the US and the UK, and in 2020 the Association of British Scrabble Players conferred the Grandmaster title on him. He is also a FIDE Chess Master, a software developer, and a former teacher.
David streams club sessions and sometimes other Scrabble content at twitch.tv/dave_koenig. He shares his insights into Scrabble games as he plays them, including occasional reminiscences of other players and events from his nearly two decades competing in tournaments, and you can sometimes catch him chatting about his favorite beers, gins, and Spotify playlists.
Mina Le is a 1700-rated New Jersey player who placed 6th in the CSW division of the 2019 Championship.
Mina plays games live at twitch.tv/vhyacinth and talks viewers through her thought process on every move. She aims for her channel to be the premier place for beginners to learn how to improve their Scrabble game, as demonstrated in real-time play.
2017 Junior World Scrabble Champion Matthew O'Connor streams education sessions, game analyses, and blitz matches with other experts on his channel, twitch.tv/64bitscrabble.
Annette Obrestad is a former professional poker player and currently a YouTuber. She mostly does makeup content, but occasionally reviews hotels in Las Vegas.
She got into Scrabble more seriously during the pandemic after having played Words with Friends for years. She stumbled across a NASPA live stream covering the Tournament of Champions that was played on Scrabble GO. She made the switch and found online play - now, of course, on Woogles!
She does not consider herself an expert by any means but really enjoys the strategic aspects of the game, and even though her word knowledge could be better, she likes to think she does okay still. She has yet to play in any live tournaments, but hopes to dip her toes in the future and get to meet everyone as well.
She does not stream anything in particular - just random games that she plays - nothing that's organized. But when Woogles run tournaments, she might stream them. She does not have set times for streaming - just whatever fits with her schedule. Check out her channel: twitch.tv/churrrrrrrrrro.
Jeffrey Pogue is the two time North American School Scrabble Championship (NASSC) co-champion and loves to play Scrabble as much as possible. He comes from the youth side of the Scrabble community, competing mostly in youth tournaments locally, but also sometimes playing against the bigwigs.
Jeffrey offers an alternative to the expert play of many other streamers, preferring to "throw for content" in order to make as entertaining a stream as possible. Despite this, you can still expect a mid to high level performance most of the time, with explanations on thinking for beginners and entertaining tales for everyone else.
Because of school, he does not have a consistent stream schedule, but he tries to go live about once a week or two. He also sometimes streams similar yet different games from scrabble, like Crossword Island Hopper and Chess. You can find him and his chaotic streams at twitch.tv/doublejayy.
Austin Shin is a Scrabble Grandmaster and a former UK and US National Champion.

Follow Austin’s Twitch channel at twitch.tv/austinho9.

|Jen Cranberry Thomsen||
Brooklyn (NY) player Cranberry streams every other night - usually around midnight Eastern - with a Scabble game before and sometimes after the main game played.
Cranberry plays an old DOS shareware version from 1986, but it can still be a challenge to beat. She plays casually but is interested in challenging (and streaming) live players via Woogles.
Cranberry notes that while it is definitely not the most formal Scrabble streaming experience, it might be of interest to those who want to see where we came from as far as computer Scrabble and AI.
