Iveypoker.com Recruits Seven More Pros

Iveypoker.com Recruits Seven More Pros Since its inception, Iveypoker.com seems to be relentlessly pursuing the brightest talent in the game today to create a world class line-up of top coaches. Until recently Team Ivey consisted of 2012 WSOP Main Event winner Greg Merson, Jennifer Harman, James Dempsey, Patrik Antonius, Cole South and, of course, Phil Ivey.
However, that number has now more than doubled after Iveypoker.com announced its latest band of recruits to join the site. Included amongst their numbers are the 4 US pros Josh Brikis, Jonathan Tamayo, Matt Giannetti and David Peters.
Also throwing in their lot with Team Ivey is Hungary’s Balazs Botond and Canadian cash game specialist Gillian Epp. The 27 year old started out her poker career as a casino poker dealer before swapping places and taking her talent to the high stakes tables in Las Vegas. Giving an insight into her approach to the game, Gillian Epp explains:
“Playing against the best players raises your own level of play. I learn the most when I am put in challenging situations, the way I am against really good players.”
Finally, the UK’s very own John Eames also takes his place amongst Team Ivey. The pro from from Stockport in Greater Manchester is a skilled tournament player having earned  $1,512,738 from live tournaments, with his list of accolades including victories in 2010 at the €2k EPT Vienna for €123,500, and in 2011 at the €2k EPT Prague for €101,750. In addition, the young Brit has notched up a further $1,894,566 playing online under the screen name johne147.
When promoting his new site Phil Ivey said he was looking to recruit “the best players in the world,” and the 13 pros currently representing Iveypoker.com would certainly fall into that category.
