Kara Scott Inks Deal With 888pokerFebruary 24, 2016 12:03 pm
Kara Scott has been a regular stalwart of the poker industry over the past decade, with some of her jobs including working as a ‘High Stakes Poker’ hostess from 2009 to 2011, and as a PartyPoker ambassador from 2010 up until the end of 2014. Now, the Canadian personality and poker player has announced her latest assignment, this time as the newest member of Team 888poker.
As part of her duties, Scott will be representing her new site at events across the globe, alongside other professional players associated with the 888 pro team, including Sofia Lovgren, Jackie Glazier, Joe McKeehen, Dominik Nitsche, and Nicolau Villa-Lobos, amongst others.
“Joining the 888poker team is a fantastic milestone for my career and I feel honored to be representing such a key player in the poker industry,” said Scott. “I’m also really excited to be a part of their impressive team of ambassadors! I am looking forward to a bright and successful future with 888poker.”
In addition to her presenting career, Kara Scott is a keen poker player and over the years has more than demonstrated her ability to hold her own against top competition. In 2008, Kara Scott made a deep run at the $10k WSOP Main Event, before eventually being eliminated in 104th place for $41,816, and the following year Scott achieved her biggest result to date after finishing the €3,500 Irish Open in a runner-up position for a €312,600 payday. Since her first live tournament cash in 2007, Kara Scott has earned a total of $643,880, although she has accomplished five-figure scores in just 3 out of the past 9 years.
Kara Scott also has plenty of experience playing online, and on February 29th will kick-off her new career with 888poker by taking part in her very own $3k Welcome Kara Scott Free Tournament, with whoever eliminates Scott from the competition receiving a $100 bounty. Looking forward to the event, Scott commented:
“I’m a big believer in just how much fun poker can be and adore being involved with the recreational side of the game, as well as the more serious side.”
