iPoker’s Poker Encore Signs UK’s James Williams

November 10, 2011

iPoker Network skin Poker Encore has expanded its pro roster recently with the addition of UK’s James Williams. Williams is also known as LJAMESL at the NLH cash games who anyone who has played with him knows is a force to be reckoned with. The buzz is that the 25-year-old poker pro started his online poker career with a mere $20 deposit from which he built up his bankroll with more than $200K in winnings and now plays regularly at the $10/$20 tables. He also plays in live tournaments as well, but mostly plays online poker.

Williams’ biggest win yet was in 2009 when he came in second to Priyan de Mel at the GUKPT Blackpool Main Event and won £52,400. He also won the Sky Poker Tour Grand Final back in September taking home a £22,264 paycheck.

Poker Encore co-founder Karl Mahrenholz says, “I first played with James 2-3 years ago and recognized the raw talent he had. Not only is he a fearless player, but he plays the game with a great attitude, which is so important to make it in the poker world.”

Williams himself describes his play style as aggressive and admits he makes some crazy moves. It is harder and harder these days though to find a poker pro who stays humble and plays “with a great attitude,” so it is a refreshing treat to hear of a success story like Williams.

The Poker Encore sponsored pro team already includes Simon “Amatay” Jones, Paul “Action” Jackson, and Constantine Paparestis.

Also on the iPoker Network are William Hill Poker, Titan Poker, and ChiliPoker.
