Tony G No Loger At PartyPoker

Tony G No Loger At PartyPokerBack in 2010, Antanas “Tony G” Guoga joined PartyPoker as a sponsored pro but after three years of representing the site has now left to concentrate on his own sports betting company called TonyBet.com.
After announcing his departure from PartyPoker, the businessman and poker pro explained: “TonyBet has grown 10 times over the last 18 months and is growing every day. It’s no longer fair for me to also be part of PartyPoker. I really would like to thank PartyPoker for over 10 years of working together. I still remain a loyal affiliate of PartyPoker via all my online poker interests, with the main one being PokerNews, and am thankful for everything the site did for me.”
Despite now turning his full attention to the sports betting site he started in 2009, Tony G said he was still looking forward to playing in PartyPoker’s Premier League VI. The 39 year-old Lithuanian-Australian has the distinction of being the only player to partake in every edition of the event and believes this time around the tournament has his name on it.
Tony G is well known for his outspoken, highly competitive nature and ahead of the PartyPoker competition has been taunting his favourite poker rival, Phil Helmuth. In his most recent blog post, Tony G announced: “I am looking forward to smashing Hellmuth in the Premier League..I am drooling already. I hope he doesn’t pull out when he knows I am waiting for him with a big knife and fork.”
Tony G also took the opportunity to call out Dan “Jungleman” Cates, who recently chided Tom Dwan for not completing their “durrrr” Challenge 2, which got underway in August 2010 but has since ground to a halt. After  19,335 hands Cates is already $1,251,059 ahead and was hoping to play out the 30,665 hands remaining. Nevertheless, Tony G decided to weigh in on the matter by reminding Dan Cates of the time he offered to stake him only to be let down at the last moment. As the ever-loquacious Tony G explains in his blog post:
“Jungleman has turned into tarzan beating his chest! Didn’t we have a staking deal Jungle? What happened with all that – you vanished? I was going to put you into the WSOPE high-roller and you were in a hostel? What is going on? You used me and my good nature.”
