Learn more about Twitch streamer Thomas “Majin” Hayward and find out how you can join his Home Games club and play community games with exclusive prizes.
You won’t see another poker stream quite like Tom Hayward’s.
The New Zealander, who goes by “Majin” on Twitch and “Majinboob” on PokerStars, uses his animation and production skills to combine poker play with sketch comedy and pop culture soundbites, often inserting himself into a conversation with podcast host Joe Rogan or an episode of Judge Judy, mid-poker session.
Lex Veldhuis has called him one of the most innovative streamers in the poker directory, so it was no surprise when Hayward was asked to join PokerStars Team Pro in 2019.
“When PokerStars recognised what I was doing, it made me realise that I can take it further,” he told us. And since then, not only has Hayward’s Twitch channel gone from strength to strength but he’s also moved up from low-stakes multi-table tournaments (MTTs) to mid-to-high stakes games.
His dream was always to win PokerStars’ flagship online event. “The Sunday Million is this mythical beast that I felt I had to crack,” he said.
He vanquished the beast in 2021, winning the Milly for $53K. “To actually overcome it, it kind of doesn’t feel real,” he said. “Even if I’d won it for $10K, or something less impactful, it would still feel just as insane to me.”
Through his poker play and inventiveness, Hayward has built a community of loyal viewers (who affectionately refer to themselves as “plebs”). They’re fun. They’re creative. And they’ve got a good sense of humour.
If that sounds up your alley, you should join Hayward’s Home Games Club. Members of his community can join the “Plebian Paradise” and play private poker tournaments against each other, often with exclusive prizes up for grabs, while watching the Majin stream.
You’ll usually find Hayward playing mid-to-high stakes tournaments on the New Zealand evening schedule (very early morning in Europe), with the occasional European evening session thrown in.
Here’s how you can join Hayward’s Home Games Club.
