Online poker group partypoker has signed former professional snooker player Stephen Hendry to a sponsorship deal, becoming a brand ambassador for the company.
The announcement came through Hendry's social media accounts, where he posted up his gameplay report from the group. In addition to working as a brand ambassador, Hendry is actually playing cash games, participating in nearly 1,000 hands when he posted the announcement.
The tweet can be viewed below:
Hendry is a seven-time World Champion and is currently retired, having stopped playing in 2012. This means that he likely has some time on his hands to hone his poker craft.
