Partypoker continues to expand its high profile ambassador team with Issac Haxton making him the latest addition. Haxton was a sponsored player of PokerStars for many years, but he parted ways with the online poker site in 2016 after having issues with changes in the VIP rewards program.
Haxton said that he is genuinely proud to join Partypoker team which he believes will be 'the future of poker'. 'I have been very impressed with their growth over the last year. From expanding their online cash game and tournament offerings to improving their software and their ambitious and innovative live events program.'
Haxton has joined the elite team of ambassadors which includes Fedor Holz, Sam Trickett, Patrick Leonard and Jason Koon. These sponsored players have been hired with a motive to facilitate open and effective communication channels between the players and Partypoker. The New Yorker has been a professional poker player for over a decade winning more than $15 million on the live poker circuit.
As per the deal, Haxton would be playing the upcoming Partypoker live events including the MILLIONS grand final in Barcelona.
Partypoker is an online poker card room which was launched in 2001 by PartyGaming, and it is one of the most massive online card room.
“Over the years, he has demonstrated a real commitment to principles and will play a key role in helping us meet and exceed player expectations,” Partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters said. “We are in the process of building a poker site for the players and Haxton will be instrumental in helping us achieve our goals,” he added in a company announcement.
Partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters has also called Isaac 'a perfect ambassador.'
