Party Poker spent the first month of this new year signing up two new players to its Team Party Poker roster. Those players, in order of being signed, are Kara Scott and Tony G.
Kara Scott is not only a fine poker player, having won the Sports Stars Challenge III in 2008, but she is also a fine hostess and emcee, having presented for the Party Poker World Open V (a performance she will repeat for the Party Poker World Open VI, when it rolls around). Kara Scott’s other poker accomplishments are making it to the final table at the Party Poker Women’s World Open I in 2007 and placing 2nd at the Irish Open in 2009.
Tony G. (less commonly known by his given name Antanas Guoga) was the second player signed to Team Party Poker. Tony G., as you might already know, has his own online poker site, TonyGPoker, which has also been absorbed into the Party Poker empire. TonyGPoker players will not be sent to Party Poker, however, but rather to Noble Poker, another property of the PartyGaming empire.
Tony G.’s poker accomplishments include making the final table at the World Poker Tour Euro Finals and his career poker winnings amount to over $4 million. His first official Party Poker act was representing the site along with fellow Australian and 2009 Aussie Millions winner Stewart Scott at the 2010 Aussie Millions.
The other members of Team Party Poker are Remy Biechel, Ian Frazer, Felipe “Mojave” Ramos, Bodo Sbrzesny, and the sole 2009 inductee into the Poker Hall of Fame, Mike Sexton.
Tony G. and Kara Scott will both be appearing (read: competing) in the upcoming Party Poker Premier League IV tournament.
