Evander ‘The Real Deal’ Holyfield Joins RealDealPoker.com to Fight for Fair Play

Five time world heavyweight champion Holyfield fights again

rdp-holyfield-160.jpgLONDON (1 JULY 2010) – Boxing legend Evander Holyfield has teamed up with online poker room RealDealPoker.com to face his toughest challenge yet: the fight for a fair deal.

RealDealPoker.com is the only poker room in the world to use real cards for online play.

“There are no random number generators here,” says RealDealPoker.com founder Gene Gioia. “Our revolutionary technology uses real cards, can be audited, and leaves no question about the fairness of games. We have accomplished what no one thought was possible: to deal real cards in an online environment.”

Boxing legend Evander Holyfield, who earned the nickname ‘The Real Deal’ after winning multiple championships in both the heavyweight and cruiserweight divisions, is taking the fight for fair play all the way.

“Real cards being dealt online – why didn’t someone think of this sooner?” Holyfield continues: “If I’m playing poker, I like to know I am playing with real cards and not just a computer. RealDealPoker.com is a poker room I’m very proud to be associated with.”

Evander Holyfield will be in Las Vegas with RealDealPoker.com founder Gene Gioia playing in the July 3 Ante Up for Africa Charity Tournament and the WSOP Main Event on July 5.
