GGPoker Welcomes Boris Becker As Brand Ambassador
The news is official: 6-time Grand Slam tennis legend Boris Becker is the latest to join GGPoker’s impressive list of representatives and celebrity brand ambassadors. Becker joins the likes of Canadian pro and miracle-maker Daniel Negreanu, top champ Bryn Kenney, eSports and Poker legend Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier and brand partner King’s Casino, becoming the GGPoker’s very first sports ambassador to join the leading brand to date.
Becker’s appointment could not have come at a more opportune time either, as he joins the formidable GGPoker team right on time ahead of the WSOP (World Series of Poker) Online Super Circuit Series at a time when digital is the new normal for the professional world of competitive Poker. It’s also perfect timing in terms of the tennis legend returning to one of his favourite pastimes, being that of playing on the live felt. Becker will without a doubt hope to add to his $111,416 in pro-tournament winnings won so far and the Wimbledon superstar should have no problem applying his tenacity and grit getting back into the action.
Becker is a former partypoker brand ambassador but hasn’t played or represented any specific brand since 2013.
Becker Is Happy To Join GGPoker
As for the man himself, he seems particularly pleased at having been granted the opportunity of joining the likes of GGPoker and King’s Casino. During a recent interview and online commentary, Becker declared his admiration for the brand and its existing representatives, saying that he looked forward to competing against players from all around the world and as part of a worthy team and the best platform currently in existence. He also expressed his heartfelt wish of soon adding a WSOP Circuit ring to his many Grand Slam wins.
Needless to say, the feeling is mutual and shared by the team. Head of GGPoker Jean-Christophe Antoine replied to Becker’s online interview with a statement of his own and on behalf of the team welcomed the Grand Slam tennis champ to the team. Antoine referred to Becker’s famous reputation of being a truly “fierce competitor” on the court and said that he (Antoine) and the GGPoker team are looking forward to seeing the same fierceness and fire going forward on the felt.
Success In Representation
Antoine issued a heartfelt message of welcome to King’s Casino too, saying that with a respected industry brand-name and a top sports ambassador on the team, GGPoker can be expected to go from strength to strength.
