Niall Farrell becomes GGPoker UK ambassador
The popular Scottish poker player Niall Farrell deservedly bears the title of "Triple Crown Winner". Such a nickname in the world poker community can be obtained by winning the EPT (European Poker Tour) and WPT (World Poker Tour) Main Events, while also having a World Series of Poker gold bracelet in the list of your trophies.
Farrell became the eighth Triple Crown winner with three victories over the course of two years and one month. In total, only nine poker players have such a title.
First, in October 2015, the Scot won the €5 300 buy-in EPT Malta Main Event and received a €534 330 payout. Then, in November 2016, the poker player conquered the WPT Caribbean Main Event for $4 560 and earned $335 000. And finally, he became crowned three times in November 2017, after winning the €25 000 high roller bracelet tournament at the WSOPE in Rozvadov. Then Farrell received the largest payout of his poker career in the amount of €745 280.
The skill of the poker player was appreciated by the poker community, and the representatives of GGPoker decided not to lose sight of such a promising player and invited him to their place as an ambassador. The fact that Neil Farrell is now a member of the GGPoker team became known from the post on Twitter by the poker network:
The poker player himself also told about this event to his Twitter followers and announced pleasant surprises for the British GGPoker community in the coming months.
As for the World Series of Poker this year, at the WSOP 2022 he managed to cash in two events. In the $500 The Housewarming tournament he took only 881st place and earned $1 720. However, in Event #16: No Limit Hold'em $3 000, he came very close to the final table, but failed to move past 12th place and received a payout of $28 100.
