Kara Scott Joins Team 888poker, Final Tables 888Live Local London

8 March 2016, By: compncards
Kara Scott has gone from being a poker outsider to one of the most recognized faces in the game.

Over the last couple of weeks Scott has been on a bit of a hot streak. In addition to serving as GPL Draft Commissioner, she recently inked a deal to be a brand ambassador for 888poker.

Finally, the “poker enthusiast” had her first final table since 2013 last week at 888Live in London.

Scott Signs with 888poker as Brand Ambassador

Late last month 888poker announced that Scott had signed on as its newest brand ambassador.

Scott, who lists herself as a poker “enthusiast” rather than a pro, is perhaps best known for her work on ESPN’s World Series of Poker broadcasts.

However, Scott’s resume stretches back a decade when she was one of the hosts on “Poker Night Live” and later on “Sky Poker” on Sky Television.

According to Scott, "I've long been impressed with 888poker's focus on providing a great player experience.”

"I'm a big believer in just how much fun poker can be and adore being involved with the recreational side of the game, as well as the more serious side.”

“Joining the 888poker team is a fantastic milestone for my career and I feel honored to be representing such a key player in the poker industry. I'm also really excited to be a part of their impressive team of ambassadors! I am looking forward to a bright and successful future with 888poker."

Scott Finals 888Live Event in London

It didn’t take long for Scott’s new signing to pay off, quite literally.

She took part in the 888Live Local series as the Aspers Casino in London last weekend and finished 3rd in the Main Event.

The Main Event was a £220 buy-in event paying over £22,000 to first place. Fellow pro Sofia Lövgren managed to pull off a min-cash but Scott nearly took the title.

At a final consisting of primarily amateur players, Scott was easily the featured player. Ultimately her experience at the table netted her a 3rd-place finish for $14,341.

This was Scott’s largest live tournament score since October 2013. With any luck, it will be just the first of many to come in the near future.

Scott has tournament earnings of $658,222. Her largest score came in 2009 when she finished runner-up in the Irish Open for over $413,000.
