GGPoker unveiled last week the two newest members of its GGTeam, Jeff Gross and Ali Nejad. They will represent the online poker room both live and online, Gross as Voice of GGPoker and Nejad as GGPoker Media Ambassador, alongside other global ambassadors Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Jason Koon, and Fedor Holz.
The new ambassadors’ primary focus will be “creating new and exciting content, which will engage with new communities of players and help grow poker”, the group stated in a press release.

Originally from Ann Arbor, MI, Gross currently divides his time between Miami, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Brazil. He first played poker as a 14-year-old, and boasts over $5 million in career tournament earnings, making seven WSOP final tables thus far. Gross is an avid podcaster and streamer and engages with his large and supportive community of fans across multiple social media platforms.
Californian Ali Nejad is one of the best-known poker broadcasters in the world, having commentated on shows including NBC‘s Poker After Dark and National Heads-Up Poker Championship, ESPN’s World Series of Poker coverage, The Ultimate Poker Challenge TV series, and World Poker Tour broadcasts. More recently, Nejad has hosted Triton Super High Roller broadcasts, commenting on the live action as well as interviewing players away from the table.

“I am thrilled to be joining GGPoker. It’s an amazing time right now for poker and GG is leading the way,” said Gross. “I am looking forward to being a brand ambassador as well as hosting the best tournament on the internet; the weekly $10,300 Super MILLION$, with final tables, broadcast every Tuesday!”

Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador, added: “GGPoker is the world’s biggest online poker room, but that doesn’t mean we’re not focused on growing even bigger! Adding two of poker’s best contest-creating personalities to the GGTeam means we’ll better entertain our existing customers while broadening the game to reach new ones.”
New GGPoker players are eligible to claim the poker room’s Welcome Bonus, earn even more rewards with the Honeymoon for Newcomers promotion, and automatically join GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program, with regular cash prizes on offer.
In March, the World Series of Poker and GGPoker Network’s online poker room WSOP.CA opened up for Ontario-based players in early April, when the new iGaming market kicked off in the Canadian province.
