Since the GPI and Phil Ivey are both excellent, any partnership deal between them is bound to benefit a number of poker players.
Speaking about the partnership, Ivey said that Ivey Poker is eager to work with the GPI as it is the leading promoter of poker as a game of skill. He said: “Our goal is to provide the tools necessary to increase the skill level of every poker player and to win.”
The recently signed partnership deal promises poker players benefits such as question-and-answer sessions with top professional poker coaches from Ivey League through The Hendon Mob’s forum. Ivey Poker subscribers can also avail of a wide range of lucrative promotions. In addition, as many as 100,000 people who use Fantasy Poker managers can avail of attractive Ivey League promos.
Alexandre Dreyfus, the chief executive officer of GPI, said: “We are elated to be working with the biggest name in the game of poker. We hope that this team will further highlight the game of poker and promote its players.”
Explaining the concept of Ivey League in an official press statement, its founder Phil Ivey said that it “is a single source for all training needs.” The goal of Ivey League is to supply the tools required to increase poker players’ skills and their ability to win.
