Seven-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner Men Nguyen has been signed up by USA-based online social gaming provider Game Face Gaming Inc.
‘The Master’ will represent the company and help in the development of strategic partnerships for Game Face Gaming’s FaceUpGaming.com non-cash platform.
Game Face Gaming president Felix Elinson said the company was “pleased and excited to have Men join our team,” undoubtedly because the Vietnamese pro “is one of the most interesting personalities in poker”.
Additionally, Elinson reckons Nguyen is “charismatic, funny and friendly (and) comes prepared to play”.
The 57-year-old will be tasked with promoting FaceUpGaming.com in Asian markets, while also being charged with establishing and overseeing training workshops. In an exciting development for Game Face Gaming’s Platinum members, Nguyen will also interact with them, no doubt providing some invaluable insights into poker strategy.
Elinson is thrilled by the possibilities of this venture, suggesting that, as the poker legend regularly plays in Macau, as well as other major Asian cities, “his insight on that market and his name recognition will help drive our company’s recognition”.
Nguyen is also excited by the prospect of his new role, saying that the company “has developed a fun, interactive, live, non-wagering model for poker play” and he cannot wait to “help the company introduce this innovative product to the Asian market, where I am well entrenched”.
Situated in Valley Stream, New York State, Game Face Gaming also not so long ago made former affiliate director and experienced events producer Bonnie Damiano-Leinhos their tournament director for its USA-facing legal online poker site, which is currently undergoing beta testing.
The plan is to have the launch date announced for their first product offering online poker over the next few weeks.
