Benjamin Pollak is the latest poker pro signed up to the world-class poker team.
partypoker is happy to announce a new addition to their stars list on Team partypoker, Benjamin Pollak! He joins the partypoker EU network at the most opportune time, with POWERFEST running until Wednesday, September 23rd.
Pollak burst onto the global poker world with a 3rd place finish at the 2017 WSOP Main Event, which landed him a $3.5 million prize. The French player started playing poker in 2006 and then progressed through the stakes confidently, saying "I immediately felt that I was able to go far. With hindsight, it may be because I had spent 10 years in magic and I was therefore used to cards and bluffing. Poker was a revelation. I felt it was made for me."
Currently in the 2nd spot on France's All Time Money List with $12.9 million in total live earnings, still Pollak tries to keep a cool head. He wants to remind others that poker is fun and that's why he wants to showcase the human element of it.

It is indeed an exciting time for Pollak to be joining the team, with this year's POWERFEST paying out a minimum guarantee of €4.5 million in Spain and €5 million in France. There is something on offer for every type of player as they can choose to play in any of three categories: Low, Medium and High Roller.
Pollak said, "I'm thrilled and very excited to join the partypoker team. They've supported players from the beginning and see the game as I do. I couldn't be more happy to support them and be part of this great adventure. See you all around the tables!"
He can be spotted playing at the partypoker tables under the name "BenjaminPollak".
