It was announced late last week that online poker room partypoker has a new brand ambassador. Actor and comedian Kevin Hart has signed on to help the game of poker remain fun and in the limelight. A video was released via Twitter on partypoker’s Rob Yong’s page, announcing that the two have partnered up to promote the online poker room as well as the game of poker.
Making Poker Fun:
In the video, Yong and Hart talked about the game of poker and how they plan on promoting it. According to Yong, Hart will be helping him to promote amateur poker. The poker pro called Hart ‘the highest stakes amateur player in the world’ and he wants his help in promoting the game to the masses.
Hart has been named a global ambassador for the game of poker at party and says he is here to party and make it a good time. Hart told players in the video to expect poker to get a lot more fun.
Hart was playing with Yong, Jean-Robert Bellande and Andrew Robl in a cash game when he made an agreement with Yong to come to partypoker. Hart is a global superstar, with an estimated net worth of $200 million and tens of millions of fans. He is sure to bring many people to the brand as he begins representation.
For now, Hart will be unable to compete in live events as casinos around the world are shut down due to the coronavirus. Once things get back to normal we should see Hart at the felt, representing partypoker and making the game more fun.
