I am happy to announce that I have become a client of a new poker agency, Poker Players International (PPI).
East Coast tournament pros have received less publicity and fewer sponsorship opportunities than our Vegas-based counterparts, and PPI’s aim is to fill that void. I was instantly interested in joining PPI’s ranks when Gene Castro, the company’s founder, approached me in December to gauge my interest. A phone conversation with co-founder Randy Kasper sealed the deal for me a week later.
I am grateful that Gene and Randy have elected to make me a member of “Team PPI Elite,” the group of players who will initially serve as the face of the company. I am honored to be placed in this group, alongside some of the best players on the circuit. I am excited about the opportunity that PPI offers me, as self-promotion is really not my strong suit (despite the existence of this blog!).
Oh, and it seems that starting a poker agency makes you run gooooot: Both Gene and Randy won events in the first week of the 2009 Borgata Winter Open. Congrats guys!
