partypoker enlists Kevin Hart as Global Brand Ambassador

Kevin Hart has joined online poker room partypoker as its new global brand ambassador.

Kevin Hart global brand ambassador for partypoker One of comedy’s most famous names, Kevin Hart, will be representing partypoker once live poker returns, acting as global brand ambassador for the company. Hart previously represented one of partypoker’s main competitors, PokerStars. He signed with the site in 2017 and represented the largest online poker site for about a year. During that time, PokerStars was making a similar push to make poker less about the competition and winning money and more about having fun. At the time, Stars was dropping poker pros from its list of sponsored players, while adding athletes and comedians.

Expect the world of poker to get a lot more fun', and further details of the partnership 'will be revealed in the near future." The comedian has $47,828 in live tournament earnings with his last cash coming in 2010. Despite the tournament drought, Hart still dabbles in the gambling world in both high-stakes cash games and prop bets. Last year, Hart lost a high-stakes boxing bet to poker pro Antonio Esfandiari.
