Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov joins Team partypoker
partypoker, Timofey Kuznetsov, Trueteller.
Posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 by "T".
Russian born Kuznetsov is only 27, but brings a wealth of experience to the role from years spent playing online poker around the world, and will be helping partypoker with software development, ecology of the game, shaping schedules and evolving mixed games.
Kuznetsov is the latest pro joining Ike Haxton, Jason Koon, Philipp Gruissem and Fedor Holz in Team partypoker.
Known for many years just by his nickname ‘Trueteller', Kuznetsov remained anonymous until 2015 when his ‘true' identity was revealed. ‘Trueteller' has enjoyed huge success in online and live poker, amassing millions in earnings and has built a reputation for himself as one of the most feared cash game regulars at high stakes. He specialises in online No-Limit Texas Hold ‘em and Pot Limit Omaha cash games.
Speaking in his new role as part of Team partypoker, Kuznetsov said: "I am excited to join the partypoker team. It's a dark age in poker, good sides must unite. I've spent all of my career in social silence, it feels like it might be a time to change that. I am looking forward to using my experience of online games to help shape the poker ecology at partypoker and get involved in the new software developments.
"I also have a keen interest in working with partypoker to develop better mixed games and I can't wait to start working on this proposal."
Tom Waters, managing director, partypoker said: "We are delighted to welcome Timofey to the team. At partypoker our main focus is improving the game for our players and Timofey's vast experience will be instrumental in the direction we take. We are thrilled that Timofey has decided to pledge his allegiance to partypoker and can't wait to start working with him."
‘Trueteller's' first event on the partypoker schedule is the final week of POWERFEST, which is running until 23rd September 2018 with over $20m still to play for.

Also wery interested situation to see such young players are poker professional and make so many money, millions from poker, a thing that is fun to play, and they make money from what is fun, do they no need to go to boring job. |

| Russia is now one of the biggest force nation in online poker those last years so pretty logic signing PP did with Kuznetsov there. @Gerimantas it is not really always fun for those poker pro when they play as it is a job like others that is why there is a quote saying "make your passion your paycheck" so that you don't do boring jobs to live life....|

| Dark age indeed. Not just for poker that is for sure. New software developments sounds like a dream but if they gonna run just like the established ones then there is no reason to do it in the first place. PP software was either slow or glitchy especially in the casino section.|

| Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov will certainly receive a sum of money, for the entire contract with Party Poker. I do not think he will receive a monthly fee, maybe he will get an annual one. Something is different here, because this player want to work at software developments. I think he is good at this. Smart boy this professional player. Is different than other professional players of the Party Poker team.|

| These type of jobs must be fantastic for any pro poker player. I have never really understood the need to have these ambassadorial roles but i would love to be in the position to say yes to one!!|
| Mober||9/19/2018 5:50:14 PM GMT|
| I have looked many times for some information regarding their agreements.|
Came empty so far.
If they do not get any cash, they must be getting for sure tournament entries and tickets.
A big tournament entry for free, especially one organized by the site, is no cost for them at all.

I am starting to think all of these are corporate tax schemes for both sides. Who knows. None of these players have the kind of marketing value which could reason these checks cutout for them.
