888poker has been on a bit of a signing spree lately and the latest personality to join the squad is none other than German poker TV presenter/poker pro Natalie Hof.

Hof has nearly $100,000 in lifetime live tournament earnings but is more renowned for her role as the German TV presenter for the European Poker Tour.

She’ll bring a variety of multi-media chops to 888poker including her popular Vlogs and Twitter post.

Hof will join of ambassadors that already includes Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, Sofia Lövgren and fellow TV presenter Kara Scott.

The Cologne resident has plans to stream her various endeavors on 888poker via Twitch in the near future.

2) Ausmus “Smoking” Session with Judo Champ

You meet the most interesting characters playing poker.

It’s something former N9er Jeremy Ausmus experienced first-hand while playing poker in Kuwait yesterday.

Pretty funny.

Where else are you gonna meet a chain-smoking judo champion than the poker table?

3) Doug Polk Talks Downswings


Everybody has them from time to time. But not everyone loses $1.7m like Doug Polk.

That’s why the high-stakes pro released a video last in his “Poker Thoughts” series that addresses what can be one of the scariest aspects of poker.

Polks got some great stuff and it’s good to hear our “Move down in stakes, dummy” strategy is fundamentally sound.
