Following closely on the heels of The Hendon Mob cutting ties with beleaguered online poker firm Full Tilt Poker, the online poker portal has announced the signing of an exclusive contract with Genting Poker.
Barny Boatman, Ross Boatman, Joe Beevers and Ram Vaswani, the four English poker professionals behind The Hendon Mob will additionally be representing GentingPoker.com in both live and online tournaments, commencing this weekend with a GBP10 000 Added Genting Poker Players Championship at Circus Casino in Birmingham.
The deal, said to be struck "over a meal at Soho's Little Italy", secures the future of the Hendon Mob website with the partnership spanning both live and online poker. Genting Poker on the iPoker Network will now be complimented with the Hendon Mob League, Beat The Mob tournaments and other new and innovative promotions, stemming from its new partnership with the portal.
Barny Boatman, Hendon Mob co-founder said “We are genuinely excited by the opportunity to work with a brand as strong as Genting Poker. The company has made giant strides with its poker product in the last couple of years.
“We particularly like the creative style in which Genting Poker unites its online and live tournaments among the 25 dedicated poker rooms throughout their UK casino estate. They are talking to us about some innovative and rewarding Tournaments to rival the GUKPT or the UKIPT. Our Partnership, both as a website for players and as players ourselves will benefit immeasurably from the backing of such a quality poker brand.”
Peter Nolan, Managing Director of Genting Alderney commented; “It is terrific for Genting Poker to have the opportunity to join forces with The Hendon Mob, who have been at the forefront of the UK poker scene for a decade. GentingPoker.com and The Hendon Mob promises to be an exciting tie-up.”
