Poker player Kara Scott Joins Team Party

After years of connection with PokerStars, television presenter and poker player Kara Scott is now the newest representative of PartyPoker. The Canadian poker pro will join fellow poker pros Remy Biechel, Mike Sexton, Ian Frazer, Stewart Scott, Felipe "Mojave" Ramos and Bodo Sbrzesny as a full-fledged member of Team Party.

Scott said on January 14th, 2010 that she had such a good experience in poker and has been very lucky as well. She added that being asked to be a part of Team Party is a big honor and she just hope that she can represent the team well. Although Scott was born in Alberta, Canada, she rose to poker fame in England where she became one of the hosts of Poker Night Live.

She went on to became the host of the widely popular PokerStars European Poker Tour and most recently provided commentary on the latest season of High Stakes Poker on GSN, which is set to be broadcasted later this year.

While she will participate in poker tournaments patched by PartyPoker, Scott will continue her television work as well. Scott said that Team Party understands that while she loves playing poker especially in big tournaments, her actual job is TV presenting.

She feels honored that PartyPoker officials believe that she will bring great value to their team both as a poker player and a TV presenter. It was a PartyPoker tournament that gave Kara Scott one of her first big breaks when it came to actually playing in a live tournament.

Scott said that when she started playing poker a few years ago, she was lucky to get asked on a couple of PartyPoker's UK TV poker tournaments and had her first big cash in with their Sports Stars Challenge III.

Scott added that it seemed like a natural progression for her to get involved PartyPoker's events. After winning the Sports Star Challenge III, Scott went on to make good back-to-back runs at the world series of poker Main Event a few years ago. She finished 104th for $41,816 in 2008 and 238th for $32,963 in 2009.

Last year, Scott also had her best performance ever at the Irish Open where she outwitted 798 players before eventually falling to Christer Johansson in the heads-up showdown. Scott earned a total of 312,600 euros for finishing in 2nd place.

In her short time of playing high buy-in poker events, Scott has won a total of $557,902, which places her 24th on the all-time women's tournament money list. A PartyPoker spokesperson said that Kara Scott is a great addition to their team and they are looking forward to closely working with her.

The spokesperson said Scott has links with after winning the Sports Stars Challenge III and they have been very impressed by Scott's progress since then. The spokesperson added that Kara Scott is a great player with solid results and the talent to go even further in the game.
