 Isaac Haxton Joins partypoker

Online poker room partypoker has added yet another pro to its roster of ambassadors, Isaac “Ike” Haxton, who immediately becomes one of the most prominent members of the partypoker team. Partypoker has been a tear lately in its signings, inking the likes of Fedor Holz, 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Martin Jacobsen, Jason Koon, and Kristen Bicknell in just the last few months.

On the partypoker blog, Haxton said:

I am very excited to be joining the partypoker team. I’ve been very impressed with their growth over the last year or so. From expanding their online cash game and tournament offerings, to improving their software, and most of all rolling out their ambitious and innovative live events program, their commitment to growing the game and providing a great product for their players has been clear. I’m truly proud to represent the company, which I believe is going to be the future of poker, online and live.

According to the database at TheHendonMob.com, Haxton has amassed $ 15,879,226 in live tournament earnings, ranking him 21st all-time. His biggest cash was for more than $ 2.5 million when he finished second in the 2014 Aussie Millions $ 250,000 Challenge.

Haxton burst onto the scene back in 2007 when he was the runner-up in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event. It was his first recorded live tournament cash and if I remember correctly, one notable thing about it was that the televised final table was outside on a windy day, making for some adventurous poker. Despite all of his success, he does not have a WSOP bracelet or a WPT title, though he does have some big wins in some super high roller-type events. In the last couple years, Haxton has really made his cashes count – if you look at his tournament resume, it’s a string of six-figure scores.

Of course, that’s just live tournaments, which doesn’t take into account his online exploits, nor does it have anything to do with cash games.

According to the partypoker announcement, Haxton, “will play a key role in partypoker’s efforts to work closely with the poker player community,” something one might expect an online poker ambassador to do.

In that same blog post, partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters expressed his thoughts on Haxton:

We are delighted that Isaac is joining us at partypoker. Isaac’s profile and experience makes him a perfect ambassador for the company. Over the years he has also demonstrated a real commitment to principles and will play a key role in helping us meet and exceed player expectations. We are in the process of building a poker site for the players and Isaac will be instrumental in helping us to achieve our goals.
