PartyPoker signs hollywood actor and comedian Kevin Hart
Whenever live poker comes back, poker fans around the world will continue to see movie superstar Kevin Hart at the table, only with a different patch on. Not PokerStars anymore but PartyPoker!
In a video released by partypoker’s Rob Yong on Twitter, he and Hart announced they’ve partnered up to promote the site and the game going forward.
“I asked my man Kevin Hart to help me promote amateur poker,” Yong said. “He’s the highest stakes amateur player in the world and I want him to help me promote amateur poker, promote poker to the masses.”
He named Hart a “global ambassador” of the brand.
“I’m here to party, I’m here to make it a good time,” Hart said. “Expect the world of poker to get a lot more fun.”

Having supported the development of the game for several years, Kevin is a genuine poker enthusiast who truly understands what the game means to millions of others worldwide. He believes in partypoker’s vision of providing a game that is run and supported by those who love poker and how it should be played.
Same Tune, Different Patch
If those words sound familiar, it’s because they’re along the same lines as the ones Hart spouted when patched up by partypoker’s rival, international leader PokerStars.
In early 2017, Hart participated in PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and took part in the $ 100,000 Super High Roller. The relationship became official a few months later when Hart announced that he signed up with the promise to bring back the fun of poker.
It was the boldest and clearest step for PokerStars when the company distanced itself from its old strategy of signing up well-known professional gamers and pursuing a new strategy of giving sponsorship dollars to international celebrities. Sports icons such as Usain Bolt and Neymar also represented the company.
Hart continued to appear at PokerStars events until early 2018, but hasn’t played many live tournaments since.
According to Yong, however, this is not the lack of enthusiasm for the game. He proclaimed that Hart loves the game and plays more than he does.
Hart appeared to be playing in a cash game with Yong, Andrew Robl, and Jean-Robert Bellande recently, and he and Yong agreed that the movie and comedy superstar should express his loyalty and fun at playing partypoker.
With an estimated value of $ 200 million and a reach of tens of millions on social media, Hart will be a welcome addition to all partypoker events as well as broadcast partners such as Poker Central and Triton.
