PokerPlasm’s own, John “The Greek” Leontakianakos, has been appointed to the World Poker Association’s Board of Directors. This is great news for the world of poker. Mr. Leontakianakos, Senior Vice President of Finance for GateKeeper USA, Inc., has over 30 years of high stakes poker playing experience and understands the issues in advancing the game that we all love.

Commenting on his accceptance onto the Board of Directors, Mr. Leontakianakos, expressed his utmost gratitude.

It is sincerely an honor to have been selected by Jesse Jones, the founder of the WPA to contribute in this effort. There is a great deal of work to be done in this arena. Ranging from standardized rules; improving player conditions; assisting in the legalization of poker worldwide; and representing player interests to insure proper compensation as professionals.

This is an organization, we as poker players, should all be involved in because they represent us all, from the amateur poker player online, to the semi-pro at a World Poker Tour or World Series of Poker event, to the professionals we see on television.
