Cyprus, 17 July 2009 – RedKings.com announced today the signing of two Singaporean poker pros to appear for Team RedKings in the upcoming Asian Poker Tour’s 12 day ‘festival of poker’ in Macau.
The two signings include Jason Samsonov, one of the hottest new players on the Asian poker scene today and one of the top online poker players to come out of Singapore, and Jeffery Tan who is one of the veterans of the poker scene with 16 years experience of playing live poker in Asia.
Jason has been killing the highstakes SNG tables for almost 2 years now. He is already known for his coaching talents and will be a name to look out for in the future. APT Macau will be his first major live event .
Jeffery started playing poker 16 years ago back in his college days in the United States. He would grind cash games in Vegas to help supplement his college tuition fees and with 16 years of live experience under his belt he is undoubtedly a veteran in the Asian poker scene. This will be his second APT in Macau and this time feels he is going all the way.
Commented RedKings Asian Marketing Manager Jani Kontturi, “We are absolutely delighted to add both Jason and Jeffery to our Team. Given our overall marketing strategy and long term investment in Asia we expect both players to add greatly to the impact of our promotion in the Region. RedKings is fast becoming a worldwide brand so it was an easy decision to sign these high profile Asian poker superstars to Team RedKings.”
