Poker Player, JJ Hazan, Asks for £65,000 On Dragons’ Den.

Thursday, 23 July 2009

Poker professional and Bluff Europe strategy contributor JJ Hazan appeared on BBC2, on the popular programme Dragons’ Den (in which entrepreneurs ask for varying amounts of money in return for a percentage of their business or idea), asking for a £65,000 stake.

He claimed that he would play 33 major tournaments and predicted a cash in 8 and an ROI of over 250%. While some Dragons seemed interested, many cited it as “just gambling” and turned him down immediately.

But despite such an ambitious attempt, JJ's antics will be considered a good move for the game. One more person arguing that poker and gambling are two different, though linked things, is a step in the right direction.

Now, if someone like Timex or BoostedJ came along with spreadsheets, graphs and a long successful career they might be in with a shot…
