Get to Know the Ambassadors

Anderson, who often streams his successes on Global Poker, goes by the screen name "KAA17" and aims to "help grow the game of poker to be fun and inclusive for everyone."

"I want to make deep, exciting runs, hit new high scores, and encourage people to work hard at the game and achieve their own success."

Anderson's favorite experience so far was running deep in an online tournament, where he turned a freeroll into a $15,488 payday.

"I was able to play well, run deep, peak at over 1,200 viewers, and have my biggest cash by a mile at 15K. It felt so amazing to feel the hard work and support pay off."

Becker, a former member of PokerStars Team Pro Online, has been streaming poker on Twitch since Day 1 of regulated poker in Pennsylvania and has led a grassroots movement for PA to join the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement.

In 2021, he enjoyed a runner-up finish in PASCOOP, and then booked his first major series win in 2022 when he took down the $75 Winter Series Hyper, and in 2023 he became a PASCOOP champion when he won the $10 buy-in 4-Max event.

Becker has also made a name for himself on Global Poker, where he captured back-to-back trophies in the Eagle Cup and came out on top in the Global Poker Celebrity Challenge.
