Poker Pro Network Announcement

Poker Pro Network Announces a New Pro Team
By Vesper Abadon of

This past weekend the Poker Pros Network (PPN) launched on the Cake Poker Network and have recently announced a stable of pros to represent the site. The PPN, which is headquartered in Costa Rica, hopes to help revitalize the cash game table on the Cake Network, which often draws less than a 1,000 players at times. Given the quality of players brought together to comprise the PPN Pro Team, the Cake Network  may be headed in the right direction.

In a press release, Cake’s Marketing Director Andrew Turner expressed their excitement, “We are very excited to have the Poker Pros Network and their pros join the Cake Network. They are a great partner for us, as they bring a strong brand and continue to expand our growing network of professional online poker players who strive for online poker excellence.”

So who are the members of the PPN Pro Team? Perhaps the most recognizable name is that of Poker Hall of Famer and six-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, T.J. Cloutier. Joining him are fellow Hall of Famers, albeit Women in Poker Hall of Fame inductees, Barbara Enright and Marsha Waggoner. While these are some established poker veterans, they’re joined by some up and coming player in the game including Jonathan “driverseati” Tamayo, Josh Brikis, Jennifer “Jennicide” Leigh, and actress Jennifer Elise Cox. Rounding out the stable are Matias Gabrenja, James Worth, Chris Reslock, Young Phan, Charlie Marchese, Michael Schuerpf, Chris “Fox” Wallace, Vincent “Diamond8” Gabel, Jena Delk, and Kevin “Civell” Vandermissen.

In the same aforementioned press release, Chuck Kidd, CEO of the Poker Pros Network, commented, “We are proud to team with Cake Poker Network, a proven world class organization, to bring this unique PPN experience to the poker world. We have currently signed top online pro players, as well as brick-and-mortar pros, to play at the PPN. The allure of playing against the world’s best online poker players has already been proven. At PPN, we make it easy to interact with the PPN pro players of your choice on your schedule and within your budget.”

According to their site, the new PPN will offer a variety of tournaments including “live tourney satellites, Bounty Poker Tournaments, [and] continual Sit'n'Gos [where] you will be able to choose which PPN PRO you want to challenge.” In addition, they also house a poker forum, blog, and chat options.
