Bet24 have been busy adding to their roster of sponsored pros by signing up the Doncaster-based Paul "Pab" Foltyn.
Foltyn is one of the most feared and respected players in tournament poker, especially in online poker circles where he has amassed winnings of more than $3,700,000 helped along the way by two Triple Crowns. Playing under the moniker of "Paolo69" on PokerStars, Foltyn has won more than $2,100,000 and he is sure to be found terrorising his fellow players in OnGame Network run tournaments, the network Bet24 are currently part of.
The avid Leeds United fan is currently ranked sixth in the United Kingdom and 28th in the world for online poker tournament play.
It is not just online poker where Folytn is a force because the youngster has significant cashes in the live arena too with around $627,000 in winnings. The biggest scores of his career so far are for £46,400 which he was awarded fror winning the Brighton leg of the GUKPT in 2010, $79,957 for an eighth place finish in the $5,000 No Limit Hold'em event at the 2010 World Series of Poker. The second-largest cash of his career came at the 2006 WSOP when he came fourth in the $5,000 Six-Max event for a cool $83,402 but to date his largest live cash is for £167,050, an amount awarded for winning the 2008 GUKPT Grand Final.
Everyone at UK & Ireland PokerNews would like to congratulate Foltyn on his new sponsorship and we hope to be writing more about him in the very near future. If you would like to learn more about Foltyn then head over to his personal blog and you will see that along with crushing poker tournaments the youngster is also a very charitable person and a top bloke to boot!
