Poker Central is preparing to launch its presence in the United States in the coming weeks and is doing everything it can in the meantime to promote and advertise its 24/7 poker TV network. The TV channel will telecast all things related to poker including live tournaments, player profiles, celebrity matches, poker strategy and tips and tricks.
The channel recently announced that it has enlisted the services of poker great Daniel Negreanu who will help promote the brand and help it build a devoted following. Negreanu is arguably one of the greatest poker players in the history of the game and has an avid fan following on social media.
He recently broadcasted one his matches via his Twitch.tv channel “DNegsPoker“ and had an amazing response.
Negreanu has brought in over 638,000 unique visitors and his subscriber base has already grown to over 25,0000. The poker superstar used his Twitter account to confirm his partnership with Poker Central and stated that he will participate in Poker Central’s special event called the Super High Roller Bowl. The event will be held between the 2nd to the 4th of July at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The buy-in for this event is set at $500,000 and is expected to have prize money in excess of $25 million. The winner of the main event will most likely take home around $8 million.
Poker Central will use this event along with Negreanu’s image to promote its brand and establish itself as the number one poker TV network in the country. In a statement, Chief Executive Officer Clint Stinchcomb said
We are excited to add Daniel to the Poker Central team. Daniel is a great ambassador for the game and will help take televised poker to new heights.
Daniel Negreanu has used his Twitter account to confirm how happy he is to partner with Poker Central and get the opportunity to help promote the game of poker and establish a dedicated 24/7 poker channel. Neither Negreanu nor Poker Central have revealed the terms and conditions or the remuneration involved in this new partnership. Poker Central is also looking to partner with other top poker players who are willing to promote and build the Poker Central brand.
Poker Central is based out of Las Vegas, Nevada and will launch its Super High Roller Bowl during the start of the WSOP 2015 generating even more publicity.
