Pierre Neuville To Captain the Dental-Suite Poker TeamApril 28, 2016 10:42 am
Begium pro Pierre Neuville is one of his country’s most successful players, having amassed $3,497,999 from live tournaments throughout his career, including finishing the 2015 WSOP Main Event in 7th place for a $1,203,293 payday.
Naturally, the 73 year-old seasoned pro has had many sponsorship offers over the years, but said that he had turned most of them down as he is primarily interested in associating himself only with those enterprises engaged in the field of health and good living. It seems like Neuville has now found his perfect match after being chosen by dentist Dr. Joschem Heibach to represent his innovative Dental Suite Poker Team. As Nueville subsequently wrote on his twitter account:
“Our new poker team sponsor will create a historical step for the whole poker world , First sponsor from medical world @ept @wpt #helpplayer.”
Neuville has now been chosen to captain a team consisting of only the best poker players who have previously received dental treatment from Dr. Joschem Heibach, including fellow Belgian poker pro Fabrice Halleux. The team’s first port of call is the EPT Grand Final festival currently underway in Monaco, after which they will head to the 47th Annual World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
Talking about his past experiences with Dr. Joschem Heibach, Neuville said that his dental problems came to a head in 2015, but Heibach was able to sort out all his problems following 36 hours at his clinic. Neuville said that Heibach’s treatment was the best that he had ever received, and that he was now delighted to have his own top dentist available no matter where his poker travels may take him. Elaborating further, Neuville explained:
“It is always difficult for top poker players to get top dentist care because of time. But Dr. Heibach will now arrange with poker players to get an immediate appointment, taken on a plane, and all care complete in 48 hours.”
