Together with StormX they’re preparing another star-studded event, featuring celebrities, poker pros, athletes, and crypto-industry people for another showcase of mutual interest between crypto and poker communities.
"The first-ever StormX Invitational Poker Tournament was such a hit that we absolutely had to run it back for second year," said Simon Yu, CEO and Co-Founder of StormX. "We are proud to continue to grow our partnership with PokerGO and create another can’t-miss event for crypto and poker enthusiasts both competing on the felt and watching from around the world."
Format of the invite-only tournament will stay the same with $5,000 buy-in and $400,000 prize pool. Livestream will be available to watch live on PokerGO and YouTube. Several poker pros already confirmed their presence, among them are Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan, Doug Polk, David Williams, and Maria Ho, new ambassador of StormX.
"Many known poker players and enthusiasts alike often express interest in cryptocurrencies and the digital asset space," said Ho. "I'm proud to represent StormX as one of the most respected and innovative crypto companies. I had a great time last year connecting with like-minded people from all over the world, and I love the continued collaboration between StormX and PokerGO in strengthening the long-standing synergy across the crypto and poker communities."
