Really thrilled to announce that I've signed a deal to be an ambassador for Party Poker.

Over the last few months I've spoken a lot to them and given feedback regarding software, structures, schedules and general strategy. Party have been absolutely great and really listened to all of my feedback and have been very quick to implement suggestions. The guys working behind the product now really "get it" and more important want to make it work and are prepared to take risks and take shots at big tournaments, like last week when there was over $100k overlay in a $109 tournament! They have ripped their schedule to pieces and built it back up strategically.

In previous years I hated Party Poker, I didn't trust them as there was no real link between the players and I didn't like their software or the product and games that they offered. I didn't even have the software installed.

Late last year I started to see small improvements and began to play the weekly $215 on a Sunday, it was a good tournament but I didn't feel like there was much else. As 2016 came the offer really started to improve and I now play a good % of my volume on Party and intend moving forward to play even more. Whilst I am giving a role of helping make changes and tweaks to the schedule and give my input it would be natural to assume that I will look after myself and the recent inclusion of a $109 rebuy tournament this Sunday as well as a big improvement in the mid-high stakes offering but as an ambassador for the site I am going to take the role extremely seriously and always think about the big picture and the ecology of the site.

For over two years I worked as a full time poker ecologist and really loved the role and I'm a big geek for anything related to the poker industry. Because I am both a player and a supposed industry expert I know that Party is far from the finished product and there is a lot of room for improvement and a lot of bugs that need to be fixed. For example I think the bet slider should change to allow you to bet what you want easier, I'd like the fonts to be bigger to make it more clearer when multitabling and think that the lobby and filters section could be optimized to allow you to find the right games for what you want.

I am not the kind of guy who will bull**** and promote a product I don't believe in, Party are doing a great job now but they know they have to keep improving their whole offer if they are really going to become the biggest and best poker site in the world. What I can say is that I've met the guys behind the scenes, they care, they understand and they are very open to constructive criticism.

I believe that I can help the site become the best poker site in the world like it was not so long ago.

I won't centre this blog around Party, I'm still going to blog normally, but if you see me at a tournament this year in Vegas I'll be wearing a Party Poker patch.

I'll also be streaming on Twitch occasionally, writing some articles and being involved as much as possible.

For me it's a very proud moment, I've turned down sponsorship deals previously because of the brands that I didn't feel comfortable representing and I'm definitely never going to be a puppet boy. Now I'm employed by a site as their ambassador and I have the chance to help create the best poker site in the world for the community, that's so exciting and challenging for me.
NICE !!!!!!!!!!!

PP should offer ownership of a lama as part of a tournament win.

Congrats man. I was worried you'd have been snatched by Stars, would've made it much harder to root for you.
