One of British poker’s best up and coming poker players, Ben Jackson, has signed a sponsorship deal with LadsPoker of the Winning Poker Network
Jackson broke the news to his friends and followers on his Facebook account last week, saying: “I am pleased to say I am now the new sponsored pro for ladspoker.com and my first tournament will be in London playing the £250 6-max on Tuesday 19th Nov, followed by the GUKPT Grand Final Main Event on Friday 22nd Nov.”
The youngster, who is the son of UK poker legend Paul “Action” Jackson, burst onto the live poker scene late in 2011 when he won a £300 side event at GUKPT Coventry and followed that up with another win in a £500 side event at GUKPT Blackpool before finishing second in the GUKPT Blackpool Main Event for a career-best score of £47,820. He has since cashed an additional 11 times, including a deep run in the 2012 EPT Barcelona Main Event, although Jackson has not played much volume in 2013 and his last live result came in April, something that is bound to change as he heads to the GUKPT Grand Final.
