On March 21 it was time for the second Goodgame Studios poker night. In the Spielbank Casino in Hamburg, online marketing experts gathered to compete in a poker tournament. After last September’s successful premiere, our management team were looking forward to a repeat of the exclusive event. Dr. Kai Wawrzinek, CEO, and Fabian Ritter, CFO, once again welcomed Katja Thater, a poker world champion with the nickname “Lady Horror” – one that we think doesn’t reflect her accurately. She provided a touch of flair and brought an extra challenge to the evening, which she was visibly enthusiastic about: “I think the idea of putting on an event like this is just great. You can tell that the guests are having fun and enjoying themselves.”
Katja took her challengers to the final table, where Viktor managed to beat her with a hand of ace-ten. Deservedly – and not without some pride – he was then decorated with our “I beat a poker world champion” medal. First place this time went to Marc from Online-Marketing.de. The team will no doubt be celebrating the victory and the trophy. The standard of play topped the first Goodgame Studios poker night, and the ambitious participants showed impressive gambling talent. A second career at the poker table might not be out of the question for some.
Of course, the game was not just for entertainment. There was ample opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss the latest online marketing trends over a selection of food and drinks. After the tournament, participants were networking late into the night in the glamorous setting of the casino. The roof terrace was somewhat uninviting this time round due to the bad weather, which is why we have scheduled the next poker night for late summer. “All in with Goodgame Studios” has established itself as a regular event, and feedback from guests has been overwhelmingly positive.
