The flurry of signings made around the World Series has continued unabated after Poker Trillion announced they have signed Padraig Parkinson. The Irishman is one of the quickest poker tongues in the business, perhaps best known for his witty commentary alongside Jesse May in the booth. He's also a very strong poker player, having made the final table of the 1999 WSOP Main Event, as well as being crowned the 2002 Late Night Poker champion.
Andy Pyrah, the CEO of Poker Trillion, commented, 'Padraig will offer poker enthusiasts something a little bit different to all the other mundane diaries offered by other poker personalities'. Pyrah continued, 'I've been fortunate enough to be cornered by Padraig many times and he really is a comical genius as well as top class player, and there's a queue of people willing to testify to that!'
Parkinson stated one of the main reasons he chose Poker Trillion was the people behind the business. 'I don't just work with anyone, the guys behind Poker Trillion really are a class act and it gave me the chance to team up with my old pal Andy Pyrah again', Padraig added, 'I've decided to stay downtown this year so I can capture some of the romance that the World Series of Poker has to offer, I aim to make the readers laugh, cry, cringe, and laugh some more'.
Jesse May added 'Padraig Parkinson hopes and breathes the World Series of Poker. He is the spirit of the WSOP wrapped up in an Irish brogue. You will laugh, shake your head, and stamp your feet. You'll know that you've been there, on the inside of the greatest poker show on earth, from the perspective of the only man who wants to win it more than you do yourself.'
