Shane Warne Stops Sponsorship with 888Poker

Shane Warne, the Australian former international cricketer and 888 ambassador, announced today through Twitter that he has parted way with 888 Poker. The sponsorship between the two parties has been ongoing for quite a while, but apparently no more.

Warne is a solid tournament poker player and has been representing 888 Poker in tournaments around the globe since 2008, helping 888 promote their poker brand around Asia and the Pacific’s. Warne has cashed for almost $72,000 in his career so far, with a cash in the WSOP Asia-Pacific Main Event in October last year and a 3rd place in a High-stakes event in 2010 for $35,899 as his biggest results.

While neither parties has said anything about the reasoning behind break-up between them, it is clear that it is over, as 888 has removed their special page about Warne and due to the tweet you can see below from him:

It’s clear that there isn’t any hard feelings between the two parties after the break-up and it seems most likely that Warne decided to go with another sponsorship offer in the region, which might provide him with the chance to play more events.
