Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov, the young Russian phenom, has been unveiled as Team partypoker’s latest star signing. Kuznetsov, 27, is widely regarded as one of the finest online poker players on the planet, and has put pen to paper with partypoker in a bid to help positively shape the ecology of the game. The capture of the Russian’s signature is an exciting moment for partypoker, adding yet another world-class player to their ever-growing stable of superstars.
For many years, Kuznetsov was simply known by his ‘Trueteller’ nickname, as he went about building a reputation as one of the most feared high-stakes cash game regulars in the world. The mask of anonymity was removed in 2015 when Kuznetsov was revealed as the man behind the mysterious moniker.
The Russian has had an absolutely stellar online career so far, amassing millions in earnings and specialising in No-Limit Texas Hold ‘em and Pot Limit Omaha cash games.
Kuznetsov will bring a treasure trove of vital experience to his new role. He’s been playing online poker for nearly a decade in many different forms, and as such will be well-placed to help partypoker with software development, shaping the site’s ecology, improving tournament schedules and evolving mixed games.
Trueteller is just the latest pro to join the formidable Team partypoker, where he’ll fit in nicely alongside bona-fide superstars of the game like Ike Haxton, Philipp Gruissem, Fedor Holz and Jason Koon.
Speaking in his new role as part of Team partypoker, Kuznetsov said: “I am excited to join the partypoker team. It’s a dark age in poker, good sides must unite. I’ve spent all of my career in social silence, it feels like it might be a time to change that. I am looking forward to using my experience of online games to help shape the poker ecology at partypoker and get involved in the new software developments.
“I also have a keen interest in working with partypoker to develop better mixed games and I can’t wait to start working on this proposal.”
Tom Waters, managing director, partypoker said: “We are delighted to welcome Timofey to the team. At partypoker our main focus is improving the game for our players and Timofey’s vast experience will be instrumental in the direction we take. We are thrilled that Timofey has decided to pledge his allegiance to partypoker and can’t wait to start working with him.”
Trueteller’s first engagement as a member of the team is the final week of the $60 million guaranteed POWERFEST, which is running until 23rd September 2018. With over $20 million guaranteed in Week 3’s tournaments, there’s still plenty to play for.
