Sponsorship deal for Juha Helppi

Wednesday, 18 May 2011

Juha Helppi is the latest top name to become a sponsored pro after inking a deal with Finland's RAY Poker. The 34-year-old, who has career earnings in excess of $3.7m, will act as the frontman for the site as well as wearing RAY colours in live tournaments.

Jussi Hietaranta, RAY's Head of Poker Games had this to say about his new signing, “Juha Helppi is a good choice as our co-operation partner. He's a long-standing Finnish professional, who enjoys great respect in the world of poker players. Last year we asked our customers, who they thought would be the most fitting Finnish player to represent RAY. Helppi was the clear winner.”

Helppi, who added $450,000 to his bankroll after a very successful EPT Grand Final, added, “I’m very excited to be signing with RAY. Since being from Finland this was a natural choice for me. I strongly believe that I can be a good representative of RAY. I am grateful to my poker agency Poker Icons for this opportunity”.
