Irvine, CA (April 26, 2022) – Award-winning poker vlogger and professional Poker Player Brad Owen becomes the latest member of the World Poker Tour® team of ambassadors. As the newest spokesperson for WPT®, Owen will attend WPT events around the world, create exclusive content for WPT, and work alongside online partners to promote the game.
“I am excited to be joining the team at WPT,” said Owen. “I’ve been looking forward to making this the next big step in my poker journey, and I believe our partnership will help us both continue to grow the game of poker.”
After playing cash games professionally for years, Owen began showcasing his rise up in stakes via YouTube videos in December 2016. Since he began to document his journey moving up in stakes at cash games, he has amassed nearly 600,000 subscribers on the platform, and his total video views now exceed 120,000,000. Earlier this year, he also added ‘Best Vlogger’ to his trophy case at the 2022 Global Poker Awards.
“Brad has shown himself to be one of the most impactful forces in the community and the game as of late,” said Adam Pliska, World Poker Tour CEO. “His genuine approach to sharing the game of poker has reached an incredible amount of fans, and WPT is fortunate to be joining forces with him.”
Joining forces with the WPT as an ambassador places Owen alongside world famous DJ and artist Steve Aoki, who was announced as the first WPT ambassador in January.
Owen will officially make his debut as WPT Ambassador at the upcoming WPT Choctaw festival, which will include a meet-up cash game that is open to the public on May 12. In celebration of the new partnership, WPT will be awarding two $3,800 WPT Choctaw Main Event seats as well as two $1,500 WPT Prime Main Event Seats (WPT Prime Passports) through upcoming giveaways on Brad Owen’s Twitter account (@TheBradOwen)*.
