Yeah baby. Scotty Nguyen joins Expekt Poker

Wednesday, 20 May 2009

The five-time World Series Of Poker bracelet winner Scotty Nguyen has signed a sponsorship deal with European online poker site The deal will see Nguyen act as an ambassador for the site as well as competing at events under the Expekt banner. He will also be providing a series of video blogs and monthly strategy columns for players on the Expekt website.

Nguyen, the 1998 WSOP Main Event winner said “I like It will be fun to be part of their future and help them to make their successful poker site even more popular. It will be great fun, baby.”

Expekt will be hoping that Nguyen will be as successful in this year’s WSOP as he was in 2008 where he won the $50k HORSE event. The victory wasn’t without controversy though as a somewhat tired and emotional Nguyen certainly riled some of his fellow players as well as staff at the Rio.

Expekt PR manager Dan Vikman foresees no problems though. "We are really looking forward to working with Scotty. He is the prince of poker and our poker customers have an exciting 2009 to look forward to with Scotty onboard."
