We’re happy to announce that CoinPoker is sponsoring the biggest poker tournament in Japant: Japan Poker Cup. Coming just after an exciting partnership with the Asian Poker Tour, this means more CoinPoker satellites for top-tier Asian poker events.
Earlier this year, Japan’s CoinPoker representative Adrian Tamas was found himself playing at a poker table with Kinichi Nakata, President of the Japan Poker Association. Mr. Nakata and Tamas proceeded to engage in a series of discussions regarding our team’s vision for the industry.
Mr. Nakata was determined that a partnership between the JPA and CoinPoker was inevitable. Naturally, we agreed.
“I believe in the CoinPoker project, and I believe in a successful partnership between CoinPoker and the Japan Poker Association.”
Kinichi Nakata — President of Japan Poker Association
Sponsoring the Year’s Biggest Poker Event in Japan
This partnership involves sponsoring Japan’s biggest poker tournament of the year; the Japan Poker Cup. Organized by the JPA for 7 years running, the event spans across 8 months of qualifiers and attracted over 8,000 players last year.
