In 2006 he left to join the Rational Group – parent of Pokerstars – where he was appointed director of business development for the Asia Pacific region, subsequently becoming president of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT).
Other management responsibilities he carried successfully whilst with Rational included m.d. of PokerStars Live; director of new platforms – mobile and social gaming; director of strategy and business development – new platforms and ultimately group director poker, with responsibility for WPT.
In September 2013 he rejoined Bwin.Party as director of poker, a post he occupies until his departure end July.
