Poker Guy Gets Another Sponsor
A major World Series of Poker player has announced a new sponsorship for his card sharking exploits, Open Table Poker. Scott Neumann, best known for…well, best known for acquiring more poker sponsorships than for actually winning poker tournaments, this week announced that Open Table Poker, a new online poker platform, has agreed to sponsor him in his never ending quest for more poker sponsorships. Okay, seriously, they have agreed to sponsor Mr. Neumann in his efforts to gain a poker tournament title, such a sponsorship not necessarily being given lightly from a little-known online poker room unless they need publicity.
“Open Table Poker is a new online poker and online gambling site with state of the art graphics on a new software platform. The site is completely secure and Open Table Poker is looking to create some news for themselves as the new game in town” said Scott Neuman. “Open Poker Table came to me after seeing my eBay auction promotions and offered to sponsor me to the Ultimate Bet’s $1,000,000 Guaranteed Online Poker Tour. They liked the idea of sponsoring me for online poker events and might consider moving forward for live events in the future”.
“This is a win-win situation for us, as Scott is an accomplished online poker player and has done well at many high-profile events, including World Series of Poker Events,” said Open Table Poker Senior Partner Ravi Tandon. “Open Table Poker is looking to work with Scott Neuman for future online poker tournaments as a way of generating publicity for Open Table Poker. We look forward to him possibly having a final table finish and winning a trip to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker Main Event in July 2006.”
