Lewis Hamilton took part in High Rollers Week at GGPoker
In poker, you can find not only the avid players, but also the outstanding sportsmen. Poker rooms use the celebrity names as marketing tools and it has long been known to all.
For example, Cristiano Ronaldo collaborated with PokerStars for several years, and Pique actively participated in EPT live series. Those are not all famous sportsmen who are associated with poker.
Lewis Hamilton at GGPoker
GGPoker, like the other poker rooms, is interested in cooperation with sportsmen. In the summer, World Series of Poker was held in this poker room and Neymar played in one of the tournaments. Last night, the famous Formula 1 race driver Lewis Hamilton participated in $10 300 tournament of High Rollers Week series.
This weekend, shortly before the Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul Park, Lewis paid $10 300 buy-in to take part in #7 GGPoker High Rollers Week event with $1 250 000 guarantee. However, the sporting champion didn’t become a poker winner and he finished the game long before the prizes (113th place out of 130 ones).
So far, Lewis was just a guest of the poker room, but perhaps Hamilton will sign an agreement with GGPoker in the near future. Collaboration with Lewis cannot be called a coincidence, as the branding of GGPoker’s competitor (PokerStars) has been very prominent in the recent F1 races.
