This seems like a weekly update, and I’m starting to suspect that the media relations guy for the Epic Poker League has landed at IveyPoker.com –the Epic Poker league was notorious for sending out weekly press releases with news and updates—as the site has made two separate announcements regarding the signing of four new players to their team, Dan Shak in the first announcement, and on Friday the signings of Jackie Glazier, Griffin Benger, and Christian Harder.
The quartet joins a roster that is growing like a Gremlin in a swimming pool since the site came online just a few months ago –the site is still in beta-mode and hasn’t officially launched yet.
The IveyPoker.com roster now includes the following names:
- Phil Ivey – USA
- Patrik Antonius – Finland
- Jennifer Harman – USA
- Greg Merson – USA
- Cole South – USA
- James Dempsey – UK
- Josh Brikis – USA
- Jonathan Tamayo – USA
- Gillian Epp – Canada
- Matt Giannetti – USA
- John Eames – UK
- David Peters – USA
- Balazs Botond – Hungary
- Mike Leah – Canada
- Matias Gabrenja — Argentina
- Justin Pechie — USA
- Alex Bolotin — USA
- Dan Shak – USA
- Christian Harder – USA
- Jackie Glazier – Australia
- Griffin Benger – USA
According to recent press releases and a new tagline on the site itself, IveyPoker.com will be a training site of sorts, with some type of social media online poker room. The site is expected to launch within the next few weeks according to a press release from a few weeks ago:
IVEYPOKER ANNOUNCES UNPRECEDENTED SOCIAL GAMING EXPERIENCE
Las Vegas, Nevada – (DECEMBER 13, 2012) – Phil Ivey officially announced today the development and upcoming launch of IveyPoker, a new free-to-play online social game designed to entertain and teach the world winning poker.
