Martin Jacobson joins 888Poker
Posted On 28 Dec, 2017 0
2014 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event winner Martin Jacobson, is the latest member of the 888Poker ambassadorial team. In a recent press release, 888Poker stated that the decision to move to second base came after several successful collaborations between the pair. Jacobson and 888 worked together during the WSOP, where Jacobson represented Team Sweden in their 8-Team Promo.
“888poker and I have a mutual interest to make poker great again in ‘taking back the game’,” Jacobson said, “888poker’s goal is to host prestigious events with huge guarantees affordable to anyone by providing a wide rage of buy-ins along with satellites to all tournaments.”
“We’re super excited to be working with one of the best minds in poker as we embark on our shared goal of providing players all over the world with the best possible poker experience,” the company said.
The Swedish All-Time Live Tournament Money-Earner (20th All-Time, Global) told me via email exchange that one of the primary reasons he’s joining 888Poker is because of their interest in philanthropy. Earlier this year, Jacobson joined the meta-charity Raising For Effective Giving (REG) as an ambassador, so you can see how 888Poker’s interest in helping improve the lives of others would be an attractive proposition for the Swedish World Champion. When Jacobson won the WSOP Main Event, he donated $250,000 to animal charities recommended by Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE), another meta-charity incorporating effective altruism (EA) principles.
