Paul "Paolo69" Foltyn Joins Bet24

This week, four new players were added to the Bet24 Poker Pro Team and amongst their numbers were Switzerland’s Michael Schuerpf, Austria’s Stjepan Jokic, Norway’s Mads Åmot and top UK pro Paul “Pab” Foltyn.
Following their signing, poker manager for Lars Kollind, commented: “We are really pumped about these new additions to the Bet24 pro team. They are all great players and I look forward to working with them as they advance their careers and the Bet24 Pro Poker Team.”
England’s Paul Foltyn hales from Doncaster and in terms of winnings is the 6th best online player in the country with $3,736,059 in tournament cashes, $2.1 million of which was won on PokerStars as “Paolo69.”
Overall, the two times Triple Crown winner is an impressive 28th in the world for online poker tournaments, but the young pro is also a formidable force in the live arena where he has notched up a further $627,000 in winnings.
Amongst his victories are a 1st place finish in 2008 at the £3k GUKPT London for
£167,050 ($250,615), followed by another GUKPT title in 2010, this time in Brighton at the £1k event for £46,400 ($73,367). Another big score came in 2010 at the WSOP $5k event, where he finished 8th out of 792 players for a $79,957 payday. 
Already the site with Europe’s biggest roster of sponsored players, the Scandinavian poker operator Bet24 made it its mission to put together a stable of 24 top poker pros, and is now just 4 short of that total. Included amongst the site’s impressive line-up are Gillian Epp, Thomas Pedersen, Stefan Mattsson and former Danish international footballer Jan Mølby.
Commenting on his latest recruits, Team Captain and two-time bracelet winner Jesper Hougaard said:
“As Team Captain I couldn’thave picked a better group of diverse players like this with live players, sports and TV personalities and online poker stars.”
