Brand-new training site purchases Aaron Jones’ LeggoPoker and reveals plans to launch Ivey League
The list of pros being snapped up by IveyPoker.com continues to grow. The soon-to-be-launched training site has just announced that it has purchased Leggo Poker and as well as the Leggo community and content, the sale also includes coaching services from the site’s founder Aaron Jones, plus leading Leggo pros Dan Smith and Andrew Lichtenberger. Together the trio will help form the basis of an alternate coaching site, which will be appropriately named the “Ivey League”, and the masterplan is that it will be the foundation of the wider IveyPoker network.
Speaking in an interview with Jones on IveyPoker.com about the deal, Ivey was full of praise for LeggoPoker, commenting “when i was looking to get into the space, I figured I was going to do everything myself… but then I figured I needed some kind of foundation, and I looked at the different sites that were out there, and in my opinion Leggo was the best site.”
Like Leggo Poker, the Ivey League, will concentrate on educating players how to play the game and in an entertaining way, but instead of simply focusing on short-handed No-Limit, all poker variants will be covered. And like Leggo Poker the Ivey League is expected to use a tiered subscription set-up, which will allow members different levels of access to content depending on which monthly subscription they purchase.
As well as the three confirmed players already signed up, there are talks of adding further Leggo pros to the Ivey League roster ahead of the scheduled summer launch, but so far no other names have been confirmed.
In the meantime, the IveyPoker.com main site should be up-and-running shortly, and as we have previously reported here on PokerPlayer.co.uk, the site will offer players the option to hone their skills at the play-money tables with the idea moving forward to offer real-money poker using IveyPoker.com’s very own software, designed and developed especially for the site. As well as this there will also be weekly training videos from the many enlisted pros, which includes the likes of Patrik Antonius, Cole South, Greg Merson and Jennifer Harman.
