November Nine players Jay Farber and Michiel Brummelhuis have also joined Team 888Poker which consists of Padraig Parkinson, Shane Warne, Sam Holden, Jake Balsiger, Jackie Glazier and Jesse James.

As 888Poker continues to expand so does the team of poker pros that represent them at the major live poker tournaments around the World.

Team 888 Poker  – JC Tran

JC Tran, Jay Farber and Michiel Brummelhuis are the newest members of Team 888 Poker and also 2013 WSOP November Nine players.

This will get 888Poker a great deal of exposure when the 2013 WSOP Main Event final table returns in November and three of the nine players are wearing 888poker patches. 888 poker have already sponsored the 2013 WSOP live stream with advertisements being displayed to poker fans around the World excluding the USA.

Signing the Main Event chipleader is a very strategic way to get 888poker on prime time TV and to back one of the great poker pros of all time.

JC Tran only has two WSOP bracelets but more than 40 WSOP money finishes, 8 final tables at the World Series of Poker and a WPT title. He has also had great success playing poker online by claiming the 2006 WCOOP Main Event title on PokerStars.

The current 888 Poker Team is a force to be reckoned with, the team consists of:

Padraig Parkinson – Irish Poker Pro – 1999 WSOP Main Event final table finished in 3rd.
Sam Holden – UK Poker pro – 2011 WSOP November Nine finished in 9th.
Jesse James – 2012 WSOP October Nine finished 2nd.
Jake Balsiger – 2012 WSOP October Nine finished 3rd.
Jackie Glazier – 2013 WSOP Main Event Last Lady Standing.

Lets hope JC Tran brings home the gold for 888Poker when the final table returns on the 4-5 November 2013.
