Days after splitting from Full Tilt Poker, The Hendon Mob has found itself aligning with Genting Poker.
The Hendon Mob, which consists of Barny Boatman, Ross Boatman, Joe Beevers and Ram Vaswani, four London based poker players, will be taking part in poker tournaments for GentingPoker.com. The group will be getting started this weekend at the £10,000 Added Genting Poker Players Championship at Circus Casino in Birmingham.
Hendon Mob Co-Founder Barny Boatman commented on the deal, which was completed during a meal at Soho's Little Italy. “We are genuinely excited by the opportunity to work with a brand as strong as Genting Poker. The company has made giant strides with its poker product in the last couple of years." Boatman said.
“We particularly like the creative style in which Genting Poker unites its online and live tournaments among the 25 dedicated poker rooms throughout their UK casino estate. They are talking to us about some innovative and rewarding Tournaments to rival the GUKPT or the UKIPT. Our Partnership, both as a website for players and as players ourselves will benefit immeasurably from the backing of such a quality poker brand.”
Genting Alderney Managing Editor Peter Nolan said, “It is terrific for Genting Poker to have the opportunity to join forces with The Hendon Mob, who have been at the forefront of the UK poker scene for a decade. GentingPoker.com and The Hendon Mob promises to be an exciting tie-up.”
