Ben Spragg, known as “Spraggy” to both his opponents online and the viewers of his wildly popular Twitch stream, won a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title Monday while streaming the entire tournament.

When the final card was dealt and the title was officially his, the British pro gave his viewers quite a celebration.

“I’m the f***ing champion,” he yelled as he turned a full house, leaving his opponent drawing dead. “Oh my God!”

Spragg then jumped up on the bed behind him and nearly broke a plate in the process. You can watch the entire clip in the tweet below.

Spragg won the low buy-in $5.50 turbo progressive knockout event for his first WCOOP title. He topped a massive field of 12,192 entries and won $4,349.41, including the bounties he picked up along the way.

Earlier in the day, he final tabled the high buy-in version of the same event and finished in ninth. That tournament was a $109 buy-in and he earned $3,629.23 for his finish and an additional $1,593.75 in bounties.
