BetHoldem.com Team Heads to WSOP Main Event

2 May 2006

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua – (PRESS RELEASE) -- The BetHoldem.com Fearsome Foursome will be back in action next week and they hope to continue the previous success of team member Brian Jensen when they invade Caesars Las Vegas for the latest WSOP Grand Circuit main event.

Jensen earned a fully sponsored spot on the team after winning almost a quarter of a million dollars for finishing second at the WSOP Grand Circuit main event in Atlantic City back in February. The 30 year-old stockbroker from Aalborg, Denmark, is hoping history will repeat itself in Vegas.

"Atlantic City was a really great experience," said Jensen. "I played some of the best poker I have ever played, made moves and got tells off people. But I can't stop thinking what I could have done differently heads-up, so that I would have been the winner. I'm really looking forward to going to Las Vegas."

Rounding out the rest of the foursome are Steve McGugan, Don Gatlin and BetHoldem Poker Room manager Alex Jagodik.

This will be the first-ever live tournament for McGugan, who has been playing poker online for about one-and-a-half years. "What better place to start than at a WSOP Circuit event?" said McGugan, a native of North Carolina. "I'm really excited to be part of the team and am eager to see how my skill set matches up with the best."

McGugan said that he's really worked on his game at BetHoldem.com, and, after trying out a number of other poker rooms, it is his preferred place to play online.

"BetHoldem is a really good site," he said. "They've done a great job at improving it over the last year, putting together a great place that I can trust with my money. It's a great place to enjoy the poker experience and they've come a long way."

Las Vegas will be Don Gatlin's second major tournament as a part of the Fearsome Foursome and he's hoping for a better result than he achieved in Atlantic City.

"Atlantic City was a lot of fun even though I didn't make it past Day 1," said Gatlin. "The magnitude of poker talent at an event like that is huge, and I'm hoping to finish in the money in Vegas."

The Florida resident said he has been playing on BetHoldem for about 18 months and likes the opportunities that promotions like the Fearsome Foursome provide for up-and-coming poker players.

"BetHoldem is a real fun place to play," said Gatlin. "Promos like this are the best because for only $100 you can get into a major poker tournament without it costing you thousands of dollars. I might be able to afford to play a small WSOP tournament, but there's no way I could come up with $10,000 to buy into a main event on my own."

All of the members of the team credited the Fearsome Foursome with being a great vehicle to build one's poker knowledge by meeting and interacting with their fellow teammates.

"I think it's a great team," said Jensen. "You get a chance to talk about poker with some great players and there's a feeling of team spirit."

"These are really good guys," added McGugan. "I've played with them online, and I am really looking forward to meeting them. It should be lots of fun."
