888poker is proud to announce the addition of professional poker player Sam Abernathy to its roster of 888poker ambassadors.

At just 30-years of age, Abernathy has amassed a lot of experience on the poker felt. She has also built up a considerable social media following with her bubbly personality and intense desire for fun and action.

Jordan Banfield hails from Canada and just recently began to focus more on his poker career. We are delighted to add him to our StreamTeam on Twitch. 

A fitness fanatic, he’s into sports and has also amassed a sizeable following on social media.

Both of these North American players are a welcome addition to the 888poker family.

Samantha Abernathy is based out of Las Vegas, NV, where she spent many years grinding micro-stakes in Vegas.

But it was her breakout performance at the 2016 $10K buy-in Aussie Millions Main Event that put her squarely on the poker map.

In that event, she finished 3rd for a very respectable AUD $625K.

Poker has always been her true passion. But Samantha also enjoys acrobatics, art, travelling. But besides poker, her one true other love is her pets.

Sam’s excitement about joining the 888poker ambassador team is irrepressible!

“I am extremely excited, honoured and grateful for the opportunity to join Team888 Poker! 2020 was an exceptionally tough year for us all. And I think the most important lesson I learned through slowing down is that life is too short to not follow your passions above all else.

“I’m looking forward to growing as a player with 888poker, reconnecting with friends on the felt, and my hope is just to inspire others to take the leap in their own journey to play this great game.”

Jordan Banfield is a 31-year-old from Calgary, Canada, who has always loved the game of poker. In the last year and a half, especially with all the unknowns of the pandemic, he became motivated to improve his game further.

He began studying and taking poker much more seriously in March 2020. By streaming poker on Twitch a few months later, he hoped to start playing full time.

As a lover of sports, like snowboarding and football, he is also quite competitive. And his passion for health and fitness is a definite recipe for success at the poker table.

Now, as part of the 888poker StreamTeam, his wish has become more of a reality!

“I'm very excited to work with 888poker! One of my biggest dreams when I started streaming on Twitch. was to become a sponsored pro for a company that I respect and admire.

“I aim to provide great content through this collaboration and am proud to rep the brand as one of their online pros.”
