Hall of Hands Limited, owners of poker hand re-player Hall of Hands, announced today that it has joined forces with living poker legend Tony G to bring its revolutionary hand re-player with video re-enactment and its unique brand of viral bragging and swagger to the poker playing masses.

On its way to establishing itself as the number one online destination for poker hand re-enactment, Hall of Hands sees Tony G's arrival as a perfect mix of message and medium. "We're building a platform and a community for online players to show and discuss poker hands, their hands, everyone's hands," says the company's vice president of business development Roy Samuelov, "Who better than a huge industry figure like Tony G. to shape that discussion?"

Breathing real life into online poker, Hall of Hands has recently turned the world of poker re-players on its head by managing to recreate the real time thrill and drama of a televised final table or even a local poker game between friends, and successfully adapted it to online poker sharing and bragging. With players able to replay any hand as a poker TV show, containing real-life actors, running commentary, hole-card cams and more, Hall of Hands is fast becoming the destination of choice for those looking to share their unique experiences at the table with friends or indeed with anyone interested in the game. Hall of Hands shows, that can be instantly posted on a Facebook wall, http://www.hallofhands.com, on mobile, or shared by email, offer the latest thing in bragging rights and Lithuanian-born poker Superstar Tony G, a man rarely accused of having nothing to say, can't wait to get involved.

"I'm really excited about this one," said the 38-year-old poker star, who kicks off the venture by launching Tony's Top 10, a feature that sees him pick and comment on his favorite hand re-enactments of the week. "Hall of Hands is a great social product for a great social game. Everyone wants to talk about poker. People are always telling me about the great hand they played last night, now they can actually show me in a poker TV show. It's also where I'm going to stick my big hands, so if there are comments I want to hear them."

Players of all the leading poker rooms looking to brag about their poker, simply need to install the free lightweight application that stays active in the background while they play online. One click on a chosen played hand turns it into a poker show video within minutes.

According to Samuelov, bringing in Tony G is just another step toward establishing Hall of Hands as the number one destination for poker hand re-enactment, with future plans including a channel showing re-playings of Tony's hands and a Tony G Poker Masterclass. "Let's face it," says Samuelov, "Tony G and the Hall of Hands were made for each other."
