Bet24 Poker adds to the team

30 March 2012

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Bet24 Poker recently signed four new rising stars to its Pro team, Paul Foltyn (UK), Michael Schuerpf (Switzerland), Stjepan Jokic (Austria) and Mads Åmot (Norway).

Paul “Pab” Foltyn hails from Doncaster, UK and has been a dominant force on the online poker scene for years, with nearly $4,000,000 in earnings including 2 Triple Crowns. He also has 2 major live titles and live earnings approaching $1,000,000. He is much loved throughout the UK poker community.

Mads Åmot is a 27 year-old pro from Norway who learned poker just a few short years ago with home game SNG’s for 100 NOK. He took to the game naturally and his meteoric rise saw him chop the 2010 FTOPS Main Event for $805,000 and also win the Norwegian live Heads-Up Championship that year. Mads spends a lot of time playing online cash games but has set his sights on more live titles.

Michael Schurpf of Switzerland is known as “Swisstard” online. With a first place finish in Ipoker’s $200,000 Guarantee and taking down a $100 rebuy tourney on PokerStars and major win on in the SAME night, “Swisstard” became a legend.

As a Team captain I couldn’t have picked a better group of diverse players like this with pro live players, sports stars, TV-Stars, online poker super stars and rising poker stars – says Jesper Hougard, Team Captain for Bet24 Poker Pro Team

“We are really pumped about these new additions to the Bet24 pro team. They are all great players and I look forward to working with them as they advance their careers and the Bet24 pro poker team,” said Lars Kollind, Poker Manager at

The other players in the team are: Arvin Golrang (Swe), Anders Jensen (DK), Brian Nielsen (DK), Jesper Hougaard (DK), Josef Szalay (HU), Juho Nikkanen (FI), Kimmo Kurko (FI), Stefan Mattsson (Swe), Tapio Vihakas (FI), Matias Knaapinen (FI), Sara Shalabi (Swe), Ida Lundholm (Swe), David Wintersberger (GE), Gillian Epp (CA), Thomas “Kallllle” Pedersen (DK), and Jan Mølby (DK)
