Betfair Signs Buzzer
Betfair Poker has signed a deal with Thomas 'Buzzer' Bhil, which formalises his position as one of TEAM BETFAIR's sponsored pros. He joins Ben 'Milky Bar Kid' Grundy and Bengt Sonnert in representing Betfair at major tournaments. The three pros will also play important roles in the education of new Betfair Poker players. "Buzzer is a very strong player with some excellent tournament results. In single table tournaments he is one of the toughest players in the world. He will be responsible for passing on his knowledge to our user base," said head of poker, Ben Fried. In future, Betfair Poker will use its professional players in educational videos that will be downloadable from its website. Ben Grundy will give his expert insights into Omaha. Bengt Sonnert is a high-stakes limit cash game specialist and Buzzer will give lessons on single table tournament play. "I'm pleased we have expanded our existing friendship into official sponsorship. Betfair Poker is where I first learned and later improved my game, and has always been my "poker home". I am looking forward to a longstanding relationship," said Buzzer. Buzzer is based in Frankfurt and can mainly be found playing Sixpaks on Betfair Poker, often playing 10 tables at a time. He was recently nominated to the advisory board of the World Federation of Poker and is a speaker at the Howard Lederer and Annie Duke-run European Poker Camp, along with Marcel Luske.
