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.
