Irish Poker Tour Launches ‘Team Pro’
Team Aims to Promote Strong Upcoming Players
The Irish Poker Tour is delighted and excited to announce the launch of the newly-formed Irish Poker Tour Team.
By backing this Team the Irish Poker Tour intends to raise the profile of a number of young and rising poker stars. These stars will play in our regular Tour events and in all our major festivals. The Irish Poker Tour Team will be active in raising the profile of tournament poker in Ireland and promoting Irish Poker Tour events and our Team members will be available to help and encourage all players especially those that are just starting out in this thrilling game.
Robbie and Ray Bryant
Robbie and Ray Bryant are two of the best-known faces to have recently emerged on the Irish Poker scene, partly because they are identical twins and most people struggle to tell them apart, but mostly because they are both total gentlemen and excellent players. The twins hit the crossbar a few times at Irish Poker Tour events before Robbie won the Athlone Tour stop in the Radisson last year.
Robbie is aged 31 and is from Tullamore. He has developed into a tough and dedicated poker man whose dream job is to play poker full-time. This could be the start of something beautiful.
Ray, amazingly, is also 31, and from Tullamore. He says that he hasn’t wanted to do anything else. He works on his game constantly, watching training videos and discussing hands with his poker friends. His biggest wins thus far were 14th place in the WSOP Sydney and second in the IPO Dublin.
Robbie and Ray’s debuts for the Irish Poker Tour Team Pro will take place in Claremorris at the Mayo Poker Festival this weekend from April 21st.
New Player Announcements Next Week
Several more popular and talented rising stars of Irish Poker have been signed up by the IPT Team and we will announce who they are in time for the hugely anticipated Monster Festival in the Green Isle where they will make their Team debuts.
