Sam will be a great addition to partypoker, hosting new and exciting high stakes cash games on the site, that I'm sure will make great viewing for the players."

I am going to bring monthly high stakes games online, which my friends and partypoker players can enjoy. Over the coming weeks I will plan my live events schedule for 2017 and look forward to getting back on the tournament circuit, wearing the partypoker patch."

| i guess that's great... for some players or future players... for me personally- i don't give a sh1t who is signed with the site or not, just give me some free money to splash around and i'm good with that. oh and i have to admit that 20 millions total winnings in live poker sounds better than having a 20" salami.|

| Good for Sam Trickett and party poker, he's from the United Kingdom as well. He's a well spoken very intelligent and good poker player so he's probably going to be a good ambassador for party poker.|
His huge cash in the first One Drop 1 million buy-in tournament made his name but he was still a solid player before that. Now that his buy ins are paid by a poker site he will be even more dangerous lol

| PP and so very popular room to attract well-known poker players for advertising ... it seems to me that it will not give the desired effect for PP ... although it may be that I do not understand something in the marketing and advertising of poker rooms|

| I think it is about time that Mr Tricket got a deal with a big site like this. It will be interesting to see what promotions including Sam follow cos I am sure the will be loads of interest, especially from The United Kingdom. Looking forward to see what follows in this big signing and how we can make something from it.|

| now on the other hand i do wonder if there actually is any point in signing those so called poker pros, if we have a choice between playing in a poker room that has 5 or 89 poker pros under their name or a site that gives you ndb of $20 and regular reload bonuses plus some great promos... then i know where i'm heading.|

| Big congratulations to Sam Cricket, oops, I mean Sam Trickett (I get his name wrong too often!) on being appointed the PartyPoker ambassador! He definitely will be a valuable asset to the PartyPoker.|

| I like when they say they are proud They are glad that just got some extra money|
and promotion from the whole deal, but proud/
Its a poker site not a country to be an ambassador of.
But of course to say what is fair, you need to have proven yourself to get such a position.

Dunno. Signing more and more pros could be a clear sign that your marketing department is out of ideas and promotional material.
