While many online poker sites have went through difficult times, 888poker.com has shown a bit of good fortune by announcing that they’ll be bringing on poker champ JC Tran to their team of professional poker players.
Tran has brought in over $8 million in cash winnings, but 888Poker has a bit more to be excited about.
As many poker enthusiasts know, Tran has also won two bracelets in the World Series of Poker (WPT), reached eight WPT final tables and even won WPT’s coveted “Player of the Year” title.
He’s also heading up the chip lead at the World Series of Poker November Nine tournament, and he’ll be at the tournament’s final table come November.
Both Tran and 888Poker executives have expressed enthusiasm over working together. Tran will now be officially representing the brand in both an online and worldwide live event capacity.
