Widely known as international leading internet portal for Open Face Chinese poker games, TonyBet recently announced its license to serve players in the UK has come through. Luckily enough, the online portal managed to secure their licence right before the iGaming deadline set by the UK Government came into effect.

TonyBetOwner and proprietor Tony ‘G’ Guoga first made his way into the poker world in the early 2000’s. His first prominent stake online was made with the purchase of pokernews.com. He is responsible for reinventing the news driven web portal to the widely popular information hub it is today.

Playing it like a pro

Being a professional player Tony G has earned several main events at porker championships and tournaments, and took away $456,882 after winning the main event at the European Poker Championship held in 2005. After playing a series of games and events, he decided to invest in an online business and created his very own sportsbook.

The instant success and profit that the website earned as a mere sportsbook, urged the entrepreneur to expand his name and outfit to provide online poker services to his ever increasing number of patrons.

Future events

Delighted to be able to render poker services to one of the largest online gaming markets in the world, the website is happy to announce its notice of approval to be able to tend to UK players.

Paving the way in the means of celebratory events is the website’s hosting of the first ever online Open Face Chinese Poker room. In addition, the online portal is also set to present its premier live event and championship in a three day Open Face Poker World Championship.

Set to officiate in Prague, the three day event promises a wide array of exciting games and celebrations open to all eager and interested players. Play will start off with a $10,000 high roller Monday re-entry event, closely followed by a €1,000 main event to be held on Tuesday. The website is proud to be the biggest OFC poker site across the globe.
