I’m excited to see the company ramp up more online poker tournaments while adding additional gameplay features for its current and future players.”

Yau is just the latest big-name poker content creator to join the WPT family. Last year, veteran poker vloggers Andrew Neeme and Brad Owen joined the WPT ambassador ranks and have been active at WPT stops throughout the world in the time since then.
In a welcoming video, Yau said he has been playing on WPT Global for a while and heard about it through his fellow content creators.
“Before I even joined as an ambassador I was playing on WPT Global from time to time,” he said. “I learned about it from seeing Brad and Andrew’s posts. They were talking about how soft the games were, how fun they were compared to other options. So I tried it out, made an account, and immediately understood the difference in what was going on.”
Big news! We’re thrilled to announce @rampagepoker as the newest ambassador of @wpt_global #
Yau had some history with the WPT brand before joining as an ambassador. In December 2022, he took down a WPT World Championship $25,000 High Roller for a career-best $894,240.
