Roberto Luongo poses for a press shot for his new partnership with

Hockey and Poker are two games that British Columbia can certainly lay claim to having some of today’s most well known players and top results in; there is no doubt that Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo is definitely one of the biggest household names in today’s NHL. Roberto’s ability to read the lines his opponents take and anticipate how they will try to get one past him has made a star on this ice; now players in BC will have an opportunity to see if they can “deek the goalie” on the felts.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me, and I hope for poker players on,” explained Luongo. “I’ve always enjoyed playing poker and my competitive side is looking forward to practicing my poker skills. The friendly competition of a poker game is one of my favourite hobbies. It’s always been fun to play online.”

As an avid poker player and huge supporter of charity events, Roberto is a natural fit to represent British Columbia’s only legal and regulated online poker site. Loungo has played in a number of previous tournaments, including the Canucks for Kids Fund Dice and Ice charity tournament and the NHLPA’s Goals & Dreams fund. With this new partnership, Roberto will play poker on the online site, represent in his own charity tournament, as well as appear in promotional events where registered players can compete to participate.

“This is an exciting announcement for our players; they will now have the opportunity to play poker against Roberto Luongo,” announced Rhonda Garvey, Vice President of eGaming, BCLC. “This partnership gives our players access to great prizes like the chance to test their poker skills against the hockey all-star” also adding, ““Players can look forward to many unique promotional opportunities through this partnership during the upcoming hockey season.”

Already, has shown enthusiasm for the new hockey and poker relationship, recently giving away some Vancouver Canuck ticket packages at the just past West Coast Poker Championship’s kick-off party. More details on upcoming promotions will be announced on the site.

Luongo will also appear in advertisements for the online poker site, which is operated by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation and dedicated to socially responsible gaming.

I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
