Fresh off a dramatic victory in the €25 thousand buy in Monte Carlo tournament that coincides with his ascent to the top of the world tournament rankings, poker phenom Rainer Kempe signed an exclusive partnership with GreySnow Poker in the beginning of June 2019.
Kempe, who has earned more than €2.5M in 2019 and more than $20 000 000 (yes, that's twenty million) USD in career earnings, is one of the poker circuit's most successful players (currently ranked 2nd on the Global Poker Index's Player of the Year Race) which makes his signing with the upstart GreySnow brand quite the shock.
Kempe said the following in a press release, "I'm very excited to announce that as of today I'll be partnering with GreySnow Poker. After meeting with the Chairman of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma and other esteemed representatives of the Tribe I'm feeling incredibly honoured by the trust they put in me"
The fantastic team behind GreySnow Poker has made it clear to me that this project has huge potential upside for the whole poker community.
We're already offering incredible value to customers in the form of 30% overlays of the majority of tournaments.
It's going to be both a challenge and a thrill to represent the GreySnow brand publicly in tournaments around the world and behind the scenes to help steer this fantastic company in the right direction. I'll be bringing you more updates about the brand in the near future, but today I'm just incredibly proud to bring you the news of this opportunity that GreySnow and the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma have given me."
GreySnow Poker and the Iowa Tribe expressed their excitement with the Kempe signing :
"This brings the most promising tournament player in the world right now together with the promise of GreySnow Poker's player-first philosophy and the Iowa Tribe's commitment to outstanding community impact and generous rewards. Having Rainer Kempe on our team will be key for GreySnow Poker; not only in broadening our exposure through his high profile tournament exploits but also in cementing our connection with the inner circle of the poker playing community. Rainer will be a key asset in our poker-related decision making - we couldn't imagine a better partner for our company. We're ecstatic to see the reign of Rainer at GreySnow Poker begin".
Kempe is expected to stick to a grueling schedule of high-profile Super High-Roller tournaments through the Summer but is committed to spending time reaching out to his followers and fans in spreading the word about GreySnow Poker. He also plans on having a say in decisions that affect the offerings and promotions GreySnow provides to poker players.
GreySnow Poker - now part of the broader GreySnow Gaming - has recently added Casino to its offerings and will soon be launching its Sportsbook. If the Kempe karma is visited upon the upstart company, great things should be on the horizon for the brainchild of the Iowa Tribe, the first ever Native American-owned international gaming operation on the plane.
