Juha Helppi, Finland’s most successful tournament poker pro, has signed a deal to represent state-run poker operator RAY.

The 34-year-old will also help develop RAY Poker as part of his deal and Jussi Hietaranta, head of poker at RAY said, ”Juha Helppi is a good choice as our co-operation partner. He’s a long-standing Finnish professional, who enjoys great respect in the world of poker players. Last year we asked our customers, who they thought would be the most fitting Finnish player to represent RAY. Helppi was the clear winner.”

Helppi, who has over $3.7 million in live poker cashes including over $450,000 at the recent European Poker Tour Madrid Grand Final, said, “I’m very excited to be signing with RAY. Since being from Finland this was a natural choice for me. I strongly believe that I can be a good representative of RAY. I am grateful to my poker agency Poker Icons for this opportunity.”
