Blue Shark Optics (BSO), the Official Poker Eyewear of the World Series of Poker, boasts an impressive roster of Team Pros, including past WSOP champions Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer, and with this year's Main Event just around the corner, they've added one more to the team.
Professional poker player and media personality Bernard Lee has signed on to represent the poker eyewear company. In addition, BSO was named the official poker eyewear of specialty travel company Blaycation, of which Lee is the spokesperson. Earlier this summer PokerNews spent a day shadowing the first-ever group of Blaycationers, which you can read about by clicking here.
“I have been wearing Blue Shark Optics eyewear for several years now, and I absolutely love them. I’m thrilled to be a member of such an elite Pro Team,” boasted Lee. “We are currently collaborating on a new eyewear design and I look forward to revealing my signature line in the near future.”
It was a sentiment echoed by BSO owner Kerry Karoutsos: “We are extremely proud and fortunate to announce that Bernard Lee is now a member of our Pro Team. We have known Bernard since the early stages of our company and he has been a strong supporter of our products. His reputation in the poker community is impeccable, and so are his poker skills. We look forward to having Bernard represent us both on the felt and through the organizations and events he is affiliated with.”
Meanwhile, Blaycation, which combines individuals’ bucket lists with unique vacations, is holding their second outing, which centers on the $777 WSOP bracelet and Main Event. As such, the new partnership with BSO came at the perfect time.
“Blaycation prepares poker newcomers for battle, and what better way to gear them up than with the best poker eyewear on the market,” said Blaycation owner and Chief Vacation Officer Mark Stiles.
Lee first came to poker prominence back in 2005 when he made a deep run in the WSOP Main Event, ultimately finishing in 13th place for $400,000. Since then, Lee has won more than $2 million in tournament winnings and has established himself as a poker media personality
Thus far at the 2015 WSOP, Lee has cashed four time: 1,449th in Event #5: The Colossus for $2,125; 126th in Event #12: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed for $3,276; 499th in Event #16: Millionaire Maker for $3,928; and eighth in Event #29: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship for $19,824.
