"I'm lucky enough to be sharing the climb up this ladder with a company who has also reinvented themselves, understands the challenges and is giving me their support. That company is the online poker site POKER HOST. I am thrilled to announce them as my official sponsor and am looking forward to not only playing regularly on PokerHost but also establishing a team in land based events around the world. I will also serve as a public spokesperson and representative for the company and we look forward to climbing into a leadership role in the poker industry. Developing many programs that not only make one a better poker player but a better person for having been a part of our site will be my job as your poker host."
