Auction site eBay takes poker player to WPT Event.
Professional poker player, Scott Neumann ran an auction to find sponsors for the 1st Annual Borgata Classic Open, which he now has raised enough money for his buy-in.
Riley Books, who considered that the WPT event was an excellent opportunity to promote their new books on the Baja Peninsula, spotted Scott’s auction on eBay for his sponsorship. Neumann said, ‘Riley Books is looking to show the world their expertise on the Baja. They know that a large percentage of poker players live on the west coast and might have an interest in the Baja.’ He added, ‘What (also) caught their eye was that I have made 28 final tables in the last two years in both live and online poker tournaments.’
A representative of Rileybooks.com commented, ‘This is a win-win situation for us. Scott Neumann is an accomplished poker player and has done well at many large events. He owns a state wide computer business and collectible record company and is fairly well known in the poker arena.’
