We are delighted to announce that 2009 Aussie Millions Main Event winner Stewart Scott has joined the PartyPoker Grassroots team.
The 37 year old penned the exclusive deal this week after many years playing poker at Partypoker.com and is part of our VIP club Palladium Lounge. As part of the deal he will be representing Partypoker at the Aussie Millions in January 2010.
Speaking of his impending ambassadorial role Stewart said, “It’s great to put pen to paper and sign-up to represent PartyPoker.com – it’s always been my site of choice. I am looking forward to defending my Aussie Millions title in January and am even more excited that I will be doing this as an ambassador for PartyPoker.com with a large team of online qualifers!”
The Aussie Millions champ will also be embarking on a promotional tour across Australia to build on his already hugely popular ‘Stewart Scott Invitational’ events.
Poker stardom has come very quickly to the Queenslander. After many years spent cooking fine cuisine in some of Australia’s top restaurants Stewart eventually formed an IT business and it’s from there that he began his journey into the world of poker. His first port of call was Partypoker.com and under the name ‘Juzlearnin’ he began to make a big impression at the online poker tables until he eventually earned his place in our VIP Programme.
He first came to prominence on the live circuit in 2006 by winning a satellite series at SkyCity Casino in Adelaide that awarded him a $30,000 package for the WSOP Main Event. This success and his ongoing triumphs at the online poker room was spectacularly repeated at the 2009 Aussie Millions where Stewart became the first Australian to win the prestigious event, oh and by the way, he collected a very handy US$1,865,724 for his troubles.
If you fancy your chances of emulating Stewart PartyPoker.com will be introducing online qualifiers to win packages for the 2010 Aussie Millions this coming November, to ensure you’re bang up to date with the latest news and promotions you can follow us on twitter @partypokernews.
Our Aussie Millions champ is also on twitter giving you a great insight into the life of a poker pro, you can follow Stewart’s poker journey @juzlearnin.
It just leaves me to say welcome to the Partypoker team Stewart and let’s hope 2010 is just as successful as 2009.
