LAS VEGAS, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- StakeKings, the rapidly growing entertainment platform for professional and recreational staking, has secured an exclusive sponsorship deal with 2016 Main Event final table competitor Qui Nguyen (pronounced We Win). Nguyen is offering a 1% piece of his 2016 Main Event final table winnings in the StakeKings marketplace (www.stakekings.com/marketplace).
Hailing from Las Vegas, Nguyen survived a field of 6,737 entrants to make the final table, guaranteeing himself a payday of at least $1 million. Nguyen enters final table play stacked second overall.
Cards fly at the prestigious final table on October 30. For the first time ever, fans will have an opportunity to purchase small shares of a player at the Main Event final table, providing the opportunity to join and share in the action in the most exciting way possible. Fans can buy as little as $5 (0.0001%) or up to 1% for $39,188 of Nguyen.
In a recent final table simulation using the Independent Chip Model (ICM) conducted at Poker News (https://www.pokernews.com/news/2016/10/simulating-the-november-nine-part-1-26003.htm), Nguyen won the most overall predictive models, indicating the value he brings to StakeKings customers.
