September is a busy month for 888poker. The €1 Million BLAST jackpot was hit and there's plenty to look forward to on the platform with the culmination of their Freeroll Splash Party and the upcoming The $1M Big Shot: 888poker's Biggest MTT of 2021. Further to all this, the online poker platform has recruited the likes of Sam Abernathy and Jordan Banfield to the brand.

Sam Abernathy Added to 888poker Ambassador Roster

Professional poker player Sam Abernathy is the latest big name to link up with the platform as an 888poker ambassador. Abernathy joins up with the likes of Dominik Nitsche, Vivian Saliba, Kara Scott and Sofia Lovgren.

Abernathy's arrival follows the departure of Chris Moorman, who left the online platform in August this year. With big shoes to fill, the United States national is relishing the challenge ahead.

“I’m looking forward to growing as a player with 888poker," Abernathy said. "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.”

Abernathy has amassed quite the following on social media with 95.5k followers on Instagram and a further 20k on Twitter, so she has great reach in the poker community which is no doubt a coup for 888poker.
