PartyPoker is making its presence felt with big money tournaments, a new sponsorship in Ireland and a partnership with Chicago player/podcaster/author/streamer/TV presenter Joey Ingram.
Working through its PartyPoker LIVE subsidiary, the company has agreed to become a primary sponsor for the 2018 edition of Ireland’s longest running poker tournament, the Irish Open. The tournament will include a Euro 150 buy-in Grand Prix event carrying a Euro 500,000 guarantee.
The partnership with Ingram will see the dynamic poker pro streaming and commenting on PartyPoker “big games” featuring high profile pros like Patrik Antonius, Sam Trickett and Leon Tsoukernik on his Youtube channel, which has over 33,000 fans, and via Twitter where “ChicagoJoey” has more than 21,000 followers.
Where Ingram finds the time to do all this and at the same time publish a 40,000 word book on poker, and accept the presenter job on Poker Central’s new Major Wager show (see previous InfoPowa report), and still find time to play and present a podcast is intriguing.
Then there’s a new deal he has signed with California’s Bicycle Casino, where he is to host a weekly poker show on the company’s Twitch channel.
