“I’m thrilled to be in the company of Tom Dwan as a Triton Ambassador,” said fellow brand ambassador, Jason Koon.
“When I began my journey as a poker player Tom was already crushing the biggest games in the world. When the poker action started booming in Asia Tom was one of the first to dive into the action. He’s one of the most exciting players to watch, and play against, and I can’t think of a better addition to the Triton roster,” Jason added.
Tom Dwan’s addition to the Triton team seems to be a natural choice. The American pro has been a supporter of Triton Poker since its inception back in 2015 by Malaysian businessman, Richard Yong.
He is also one of the main proponents of the Short Deck poker game along with Phil Ivey. The duo has been promoting the stripped-deck Hold’em for years when in June 2014, Tom and Phil chose to appear in an “Asia Gaming Fans” YouTube video to endorse the game.
Since then, both the players have been actively participating in Short Deck games and both of them are considered one of the best players of this format.
Dwan will be representing the brand at the upcoming Triton Poker Series in Montenegro from May 5 to 17. It is set to be the biggest series till date with 11 events, with six of them to be played as Short Deck events.
