Beáta Jambrik Joins partypoker as a Sponsored Pro
Beginning her poker career in January 2015, Hungarian-born Beáta Jambrik is a relatively new professional poker player. Yet her talent and ability to captivate an audience has propelled her to join partypoker as a sponsored pro.
Armed with an economics degree, which specialised in accounting and finance, Jambrik is no stranger to working with numbers under pressure, giving her the ideal skill set for a professional poker player.
Jambrik started her career in January 2015, where she began playing 6max hyper turbo SNGs and was already making money just weeks into her career. Something that very few poker players achieve so quickly.
In March 2015, Jambrik launched her own Twitch channel, WildHungarian, where she now has over 10,000 followers and over 280,000 views on her channel. As a Twitch partner, viewers here can also subscribe to Jambrik’s channel for $4.99 a month, which gives them further interaction with the star such as requesting songs. Spectators can also expect to see collaborations between Jambrik and fellow partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard on partypokers own Twitch channel.
In July 2015, Jambrik became a member of a backing group, where she consistently beat $15 a spin. This move also allowed Jambrik to come into contact with numerous other professional players who coached her into the successful player that we know today. Her biggest spin win so far has been a $1800 prize pool spin. Since then, she has won a $4250 pay out on a $5 limit – a 1000x win. These days she mainly plays SNG hero games as well as MTTs on partypoker.
During her career, Jambrik has caught the attention of the press as a woman in poker and has been interviewed in publications such as Vice magazine, alongside other poker professionals such as Jennifer Shahade and Liv Boeree. Her appointment as a partypoker official sponsored pro, will only cement her public interest and may see her playing bigger tournaments in the future as well as playing internationally.
