Online Poker site BoylePoker announces the signing of poker pro Nicky Power
Online poker room BoylePoker has announced that another high profile card player has joined their ranks – Ireland’s Nicky Power. He joins several other high profile players on the BoylePoker books, including Padraig Parkinson and Martyn Smyth.
As part of his new team Power will now turn his attentions to a special celebrity tournament in December which includes a bounty format and a $1,000 bonus for knocking him out. It begins at 8pm GMT and the buy-in has been set at $10. Power will need to take all his nous to the felt with legions of players out for his scalp especially since he has a reputation for elaborate bluffs. Power once one a hand against Roland de Wolfe based on a number of outs and bluffed his illustrious opponent out of a big pot.
Nicky Power enhanced his growing reputation with a final table appearance in the 2007 Irish Poker Open, Europe’s longest running hold’em tournament. He was eventually beaten by new teammate Marty Smyth, but BoylePoker obviously seen enough to convince them of Power’s talents and have signed him up to the team.
