PokerStars has unveiled a new Ambassador to its ranks this week in the form of well-known German poker pro, and Raise Your Edge founder, Benjamin Rolle. Also known as ‘Bencb789’.
Ben is one of those modern icons of the online poker community, with a tournament record of excelling at the tables.
To take just a few examples, he banked a Spring Championship of Online Poker 2014 Main Event win for more than $250,000 as well as a World Championship of Online Poker 2016 Super High Roller win for more than $1,200,000.
He’s also seen SharkScope leader board success for Sit & Go’s. He reached the top 10 in 2103 and 2014. He topped that a year later finishing first.
In 2019 Ben put a face to his online name “bencb789” and has since been supporting the poker community through his coaching. As part of his new role with PokerStars, poker fans will find Ben streaming regularly on his Twitch channel.
The signing aligns with PokerStars new partnership with the leading poker coaching brand Raise Your Edge, which is set to go live next month.
Bencb and PokerStars with the support of Raise Your Edge will be providing current and new players with exciting exclusive content, live training, and courses to improve poker strategy and support the community in improving their game. So look out for more details of that in the coming weeks.
“I’m thrilled to be working alongside PokerStars to continue to find ways to positively impact the future of online poker,” said Ben. “Working together with PokerStars I will be able to work on new content and become even more creative when trying to introduce more players to the game. I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity. I see it as a great responsibility to represent PokerStars, to remain a voice of the community and act as a bridge between them and the platform.”
