Lock Poker has just announced the addition of Jason Lee And Tim West to their stable of pros, which also includes such top players as Chris Moorman, Matt Stout, Melanie Weisner, and Jason Young.
Commenting on the latest signings, CEO of Lock Poker Jennifer Larson said:
“Tim and Jason are both great players and great people! I am very happy to welcome them. The goal is to create a global family that is diverse in skill, passion, poker and life.”
When examining the credentials of the new recruits to the LockPRO ELITE Team, few younger players would come higher recommended.
Tim West (pictured right) has been playing poker professionally for 6 years now, having earned $1,639,238 million in live tournament cashes, including victory in 2011 at the $5k Wynn Classic Main Event for $318,738. In addition, the 26 year-old Californian pro has notched up just short of $4 million playing tournaments online under the screen name “Tmay420.”
Florida native Jason Lee also has enjoyed remarkable success in his chosen career, having amassed nearly $400k playing live tournaments, his biggest score coming in 2010 when he finished 3rd at the EPT Vilamoura for $267,165. However, online is where Lee truly shines, having earned over $2 million from tournaments playing under the screen name “Jaspuduf.”
Jason Lee is also an instructor at Deep Stacks, with his talents being recognised in a Time Magazine article entitled “Attack of the Math Brats.” Jason has also appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America, instructing host George Stephanopoulos in the nuances of tournament poker.
Commenting on what now becoming a sponsored pro at Lock Poker means to him, Jason Lee said:
“I’m eager to be surrounded by such an elite team of poker professionals and a staff whose primary goal is not just player satisfaction but meeting and exceeding player’s every need and want. Lock truly is the best gaming site on the net and I look forward to growing with them in the future.”
