Many congratulations to Padraig Parkinson, one of the most recognized Irish poker players, upon his becoming an ambassador of PartyPoker. He is certainly will be a big plus not only to PartyPoker but also for the global poker community.

Padraig Parkinson has been around for years playing poker and, if anyone deserves an ambassadorial role, this is well deserved. I have watched him play for over twenty years and he truly is a legend of British poker

well i have to admit that having this Padraig dude as an ambassador is definitely less desirable than having say Maria Sharapova or Taylor Swift as your ambassador, and a little bit more sexy too. butt i am sure party poker knows what is a better choice and good luck to them and Padraig dude.

How... Hm. Ah, well... How - interesting.
Clearly not. Dunno this guy, and to be quite honest I care very little about him or PP or any of their private sponsorship deals.
Guy had almost two million is earnings yet he would not afford 5k for a lasik surgery.

I have no clue/idea who the hell that guy is Big Smile

But I know most poker sites nowadays try to sign local stars of a target market. Since online poker almost died in the US, the marketting efforts by most poker sites have been targetted mostly at european countries.

Anyways, I think Irish people have funny names. Padraig, what kind of name is that lol! Make me think of Kathal Pendred the MMA fighter. Weird name too. lol

well yeah he could go under the scalpel or a table saw and appreciate any kind of work on his "overall professional image". one thing that always bugs me is that when we're talking about these pro's the only thing that is mentioned is their earnings, but no word if they actually have any profit left out of those winnings.

agreed, and a lot of the time they only have a % of themselves so if they win, so does someone else
