Toby Lewis is the latest professional poker player to be added to the impressive roster put together by the yet-to-be-launched IveyPoker.com.
Southampton-born Lewis, better known to the online poker masses as “810ofclubs,” already had a reputation for being a fearless player when he took down the Vilamoura leg of the European Poker Tour in Season 7. That victory put Lewis’ name firmly on the poker map, plus the €467,836 in prize money opened plenty of doors.
Speaking of signing for IveyPoker.com Lewis said, “I feel like this is a great opportunity for me to extend myself further into my poker career and being related to the IveyPoker name can only help me do that. I’ll be a loyal and hardworking member of Team Ivey.”
Lewis will wear IveyPoker patches to the various live events he plays and will be joined by a trio of fellow Brits. James Dempsey, John Eames and Mathew Frankland are all members of Team Ivey and al know each other very well.
Although IveyPoker has not launched yet they have been busy snapping up plenty of unsigned talent and their pro roster is now 30 players deep! According to the IveyPoker website, the IveyPoker App is a free-to-play social and mobile poker game that offers a unique poker experience. It will be available to play on Facebook, Google Play, iOS and Android and the roster of pro players are meant to play on the “site” for play money.
