Ladbrokes Poker Adds Jonas Danielsson to Their Pro Team

Share this
Ladbrokes Poker recently announced that they have a new addition to their poker pro team, the Swedish poker pro Jonas "Nebuchad" Danielsson.

Danielsson is the current Scandinavian Online Player of the Year and is a well known high stakes player. On July 3rd during the WSOP at the Rio in Las Vegas, Ladbrokes Poker held an official media event where they announced the signing of Danielsson. While playing at the WSOP this year, Danielsson has cashed in three events; the $1,500 6-handed event, the 10k Heads-Up World championship event, and the $2,500 6-handed event. To date, Danielsson has racked up over $3,000,000 in poker winnings online alone. At the media event, a Ladbrokes Poker spokesman commented, “We are proud to welcome Jonas into our elite stable of poker professionals from all around Europe.”

Meanwhile, the Team Ladbrokes players were rallying to make a good showing on Day 1C of the World Series of Poker Main Event. Peter "peter4002" Eastgate started off the day by building his chip stack to over 60,000 late in the day, guaranteeing he will advance to round two. Eastgate is probably best remembered for busting Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott out of the Poker Million tournament last year. Ladbrokes Poker Team members Paddy "treemore" O'Connor, Gary "rag2riches" Clarke and Eetu "peteth" Vahvalainen, were also on hand to play in the Main Event.

Away from the poker arena, a few Ladbrokes Team members accepted an invitation from Jessie "Voice of Poker" May to join him on a helicopter trip over Las Vegas. Due to the huge fireworks display being held at the Stratosphere Hotel and casino however, the helicopters couldn’t take off. When the group finally did get in the air, the helicopter developed a mechanical problem. They were able to land with no harm to either the helicopter or passengers and some very frayed nerves.

On day five of the WSOP the Ladbrokes Poker Team got the day off from the tables. While resting up to return to the green felt battleground, the players enjoyed a relaxing day while basking in the hospitality of the exclusive Ladbrokes Poker Lounge.
