A well-known name joins the Pappas team
Most observers of the online poker scene will be familiar with the name Rich Muny, an energetic advocate for legalised internet poker in the United States who has done much to spread the good word on the industry as one of the state directors of the Poker Players Alliance.
This week PPA executive director John Pappas announcing a more senior mission for Muny, appointing him to the board of directors with the title of vice president for player relations.
“Through the years Rich has worked with the PPA, his passion for the game of poker and staunch devotion to protecting poker players’ rights has proven unparalleled,” said former Senator Alfonse D’Amato, chairman of the PPA.
“Given the growing concerns within the poker community over their inability to play online poker in the U.S., now more than ever, American players need to know their voice is being heard and I believe Rich offers the level of expertise needed to reinforce their calls to action.”
