Jaackmaate Joins 888poker
Jaack enjoyed the experience of a lifetime at the World Series of Poker courtesy of 888poker, and was part of the press conference when professional boxer Chris Eubank Jr. joined as Cultural Ambassador.
“I’ve always dreamt of being a professional poker player. And I’m still dreaming, because I’m still not,” he joked with his audience.
“As an 888poker cultural ambassador I will be representing 888poker in a number of tournaments across the world.”

These start with an exclusive $5,000 freeroll tonight to celebrate him joining the site. All players have to do is download the 888poker app and you’ll be able to find the tournament in the lobby.
What’s more, there is a $1,000 bounty on Jaack’s head for the player who knocks him out of the tournament!
