Maria Ho Joins HPT’s Talk Team

Maria Ho Joins HPT’s Talk Team

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

The Heartland Poker Tour might be the domain of Greg Raymer since he bagged four of their titles this year; however, it looks as though Maria Ho is set to make the popular event her own.

Having made a name for herself on the felt with her playing skills, the poker beauty will now be testing her skills as a poker analyst when she teams up with the HPT’s commentator Fred Bevill.

Ho has just signed a contract to add a touch of glamour - as well as an expert insight - to the tour from January.

She will replace Chris Hansen in the commentators’ booth and described the new opportunity as both thrilling and flattering.

“I am thrilled to be joining the HPT family. As a player, I am flattered they are welcoming my poker expertise. As a woman, I am grateful to HPT for being the first poker show to offer this strategist position to a female. I look forward to bringing a new and fresh perspective to HPT broadcasts.”
Ho’s presence will certainly bolster the tour’s growing reputation and add another layer of prestige to an event that’s already attracting some of the poker world’s most recognisable face.
