Victory Poker Will Offer Everyday Players a Chance to Compete for Sponsorship Including Becoming an Official Team Victory Pro
1 April 2010 (ST. JULIAN’S, MALTA)- Since its launch on February 1st, VictoryPoker.com has added several new personalities to its impressive ensemble. Later this year, one new member will be taken into the fold, as everyday poker players will have a chance to compete for $100,000 in tournament entries, cash, a sports car, wardrobe, and a condo on the Las Vegas Strip. For more information on this challenge, view the promotional video and stay tuned to http://www.victorypoker.net.
Former Who’s Your Daddy CEO Dan Fleyshman recruited a healthy mix of tournament veterans, online name makers, and young cash game specialists to represent the site.
The first string included team quarterback Antonio Esfandiari, along with front men Andrew “Good2CU” Robl, Keith “The Machine” Gipson, PLO specialist Brian Rast, the controversial Dan “Blitz” Bilzerian, and long time tournament slayers Paul Wasicka and Lee Markholt. Soon after, 2007 Playboy Playmate of the Year Sara Underwood – currently in training – lent her penchant for poker and obvious aesthetics to the field.
Danny “Chinese Poker Wizard” Wong, backgammon champion Sander Lylloff, heads-up specialist Alec Torelli, and virtual training coach “The Maven” David Chicotsky had officially joined Team Victory at launch. Last week, Steven Weusten, James Obst, and Adam Hourani, representing Europe, the US, and Australia respectively, became Team Victory sponsored pros. Retired FBI agent Joe Navarro and Mind Set Coach Sam Chauhan were signed as consultants.
Jonathan Little and Canadian Pro Jason Lavelle are the latest poker superstars to join the ranks. Little, the World Poker Tour Player of the Year, has more than $4 million in tournament winnings and also hosts a training website.
Little and Lavelle bring the number of Team Victory members to twenty. Together they boast 54 titles, 465 cashes, and $29,723,643 in earnings.
With more than $29 million in combined winnings, Team Victory members have graced the covers of prominent magazines, authored bestselling books, and often appear on networks such as NBC, Fox Sports, GSN, Sky Sports, Forbes, and ESPN. Known for extravagant lifestyles and the “We made it — We’ll show you how” motto, Team Victory is standing by its promise.
With an estimated 60 million Americans playing poker, it’s also the third most watched competition in the world, and VictoryPoker.com is now on course to be the next online contender in a $55 billion industry. As one of the newest online poker rooms, it’s the biggest brand to join the Everleaf Network. Everleaf’s traffic has steadily increased since VictoryPoker.com’s inception. And by year’s end, it could become one of the top ten US friendly poker networks and one of the biggest online poker stories of the year.
To celebrate its launch in London, VictoryPoker.com is sponsoring the iGaming Social on 8th April held at No 5 Club.
