The World Poker Store’s Famous Board Members

Wednesday, 11 July 2007

Poker merchandiser The World Poker Store has announced that the appearance of its newly appointed advisory board members at Las Vegas’ Gaming Life Expo had an instant impact.
The St Paul-based firm said that the appointment of famous players Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan, Marcel Luske, Liz Lieu, Hoyt Corkins and Patrik Antonius helped it to secure Bar Poker League licensees while at the Expo, which is run alongside the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) at the All-Suite Hotel And Casino.
It also secured new product additions to its retail, e-commerce and interactive kiosk operations alongside pending partnership agreements around the globe.
'Once again, we have enjoyed great success at the WSOP,” said Chuck Chastain, Chief Executive Officer of The Poker Store.
“With Bar Poker League license agreements secured in several states, we anticipate the Bar Poker League membership will double to more than 200,000 members by the end of the year.”
The six members made appearances at the Minnesota firm’s stand as well as wearing apparel featuring the Store’s logo while playing in the WSOP Main Event alongside Bar Poker League State champions.
'We look forward to expansion into several states, opportunities overseas and bringing new cutting-edge poker products to our retail segment of the business,' Chastain added.
