Annette Obrestad

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

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.

Josh Sokol is a top North American expert and the most active Scrabble streamer on Twitch - twitch.tv/axcertypo.

Jen Cranberry Thomsen

Cranberry.png twitch.tv/gallara_dragon

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.
