Kara Scott Parts with PartyPoker

Kara Scott Parts with PartyPoker

Tuesday, 30 December 2014

TV poker personality Kara Scott will be starting 2015 patchless after severing ties with PartyPoker.

The Canadian confirmed that she will no longer be an ambassador for PartyPoker or their associated brands via a blog post at CardRunners.com.

“PartyPoker has gone through many changes and unfortunately as their focus shifted, there were fewer and fewer TV projects,” wrote Scott. “As those shows disappeared, so did one of my favourite parts of the job and now my association with Party is ending.”

Kara first came to prominence in the UK via the short-lived TV show Poker Night Live. She went on to host a variety of PartyPoker-backed events including the Premier League, the Big Game, the World Open, the European Open and the World Women's Open.

The one-time martial artist will be staying involved in the poker world though.

“You'll still be seeing me as a sideline reporter on your TVs or sitting with a chip stack of my own in tournaments around the world. I've already booked a flight to Malta and reserved a seat at my favourite reggae bar there, just in time for the big poker festival in March.”

No slouch on the felt, Kara has career earnings of over $638,000. Her best performance was a runner-up finish in the 2009 Irish Open which earned her €312,600.
