He’s one of the most popular players to ever stream on Twitch and there’s a good chance he’s going to be broadcasting a ton of 888poker tournaments in the near future.
Parker “TonkaaaaP” Talbot is officially an 888poker ambassador.
It seems like a natural fit since Talbot already played a huge portion of his MTT schedule on 888poker and had great results on the site.
Talbot joins a team of ambassadors that already includes Kara Scott, Chris Moorman and Dominik Nitsche.

Talbot already plays an intense online schedule but his plan is to play on 888poker every day and put in a large amount of volume during the upcoming SuperXL series.
“888 is 100% a premiere online poker operator,” he said.
“I'm very hopeful for 888 taking over the game in the coming years. The site has been continuing to grow for a good long while now with no signs of turning back. I can't wait to work with everyone at 888 and try to get the word out about just how great it can be.”
Talbot is just the latest popular Twitch.tv to be signed by a major online poker operator. Jason Somerville and Jaime Staples were both snapped up by PokerStars as the Twitch phenomenon continues to build momentum.
We did a quick Q&A with Talbot last year if you want to learn more about the Toronto native.
