On Tuesday, GGPoker announced Ali Nejad and Jeff Grossas the newest members of its team of ambassadors. Gross, a poker player, streamer, and popular personality with more than $3,500,000 in live tournament earnings, and Nejad, a longtime broadcaster, join the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Jason Koon, and Fedor Holz on GGPoker’s Global Team.
Gross has been a popular figure in the poker community for quite some time. Among his more than $3,500,000 in live tournament earnings are several deep runs in World Series of Poker events. His deepest WSOP run was a second-place result in the 2011 WSOP $5,000 NL Hold’em Shootout for $269,742. He has seven other top-10 finishes at the WSOP.
Nejad is the voice leading the commentary for many of poker’s top broadcasts, including Poker After Dark and the WSOP. Nejad is also known for playing high-limit cash games, specifically mixed games.
Gross and Nejad were unveiled as new GGTeam members inside the Bally’s Event Center on Tuesday at a special press conference held on the main PokerGO stage with media and executives present.
