PPI Perspective

PPI Perspective below is offered by Eric Siegel, Director of Marketing and Player Development PPI

Poker Players International (“PPI”) has been supporting the Borgata Winter Poker Open tournament series since its inception in 2006.  PPI partners Gene Castro, Randy Kasper and I have always recognized the vision that Borgata has had on revolutionizing the poker tournament experience. We believe that vision is to provide poker players from amateurs to top professionals with a spacious and comfortable environment to play, while never losing sight of offering player-friendly structures, a staff that expertly coordinates multiple events running simultaneously, huge prize pools, along with hotel and dining options that make staying at Borgata a pleasure for the mind, body and poker bankroll.

 Poker Players International established its representation of a core group of players here at Borgata, and through the years have gone on to become the largest poker player representation agency and poker marketing company in the world. PPI represents hundreds of top US and International Players, along with many individuals within the poker media, publishing and entertainment sectors.

Our roster of players include 2012 WSOP Champion Greg Merson along with WSOP Main Event winners Jamie Gold, Jerry Yang and Tom Mcevoy; WPT Champions Will "The Thrill" Failla and Tommy Vedes; November Niners Ylon Schwartz, Joseph Cheong, and John Racener; WSOP Bracelet winners Ryan Eriquezzo, T.J Cloutier, Chris Tryba, Jason Young, Ronnie Bardah, Frank Kasella; Poker Ambassadors Barry Schulman, Linda Johnson and Lon Mceachern; Elite poker pro instructors Lee Childs and Casey Jarzebak; and scores of other top pros including Chris Moorman.

While 2012 was a break-out year for PPI and many of its players, 2013 is shaping up to be even BIGGER!

We are proud to announce that PPI Players Will "The Thrill" Failla, Ylon Schwartz, Mike Leah, along with WPT and WSOP title holder Eugene Katchalov, have been named to the Pro Ambassador Pro Team at the new VIP Poker Room in Montreal, Canada. They will all be on hand for the VIP Grand Opening Celebration party and events.

PPI has also been engaged by VIP Poker to assist in developing the regions newest poker room. With responsibilities in handling VIP's marketing, promotions, event management, Draft Picks Sports Bistro and more. Our rich experiences here at Borgata make it clear that paying close attention to the players desires is the key ingredient to a wonderful poker room.

We are aware that many players in our Canadian market enjoy visiting Borgata throughout the year for all of their events. Therefore, we will be offering players an Event Satellite Series which will give players the opportunity to win tournament and travel packages to one of the five Borgata Poker Open tournament series (players’ choice).

VIP kicks things off on February 7th-11th with its Grand Opening Celebration, featuring a $550 entry 100k guaranteed tournament as well as a 5k entry VIP Players’ Championship event. For more information, visit us at VIP Poker.

Best of Luck to all through the rest of the Borgata Winter Poker Open!
