One of Bryan Slick's first tasks is to launch partypoker's micro-stake championships.

Bryan Slick is considered to be one of the biggest "gurus" in the industry when it comes to online tournaments - he was in charge of PokerStars' Online Championships for over three years. He was the man behind the conception of Spring Championship of Online Poker better known as SCOOP back in 2009.

The people of 2+2 Forum know Slick by his username "BryanS-PS" , he's been regularly posting on the site for 11 years now, informing the online poker community about the newest developments in online MTTs and also answering questions.

Slick announced in January that he's joining partypoker. With his new job his nick changed too - from now on you'll find him under the alias Bryan – Party on the forum.

“I’m currently working as a consultant to partypoker, specializing in tournament series and also offering advice/suggestions on other areas of MTT play,” Slick told Poker Industry PRO.
“After I left Amaya, I had in mind criteria for any prospective new site which involved, basically: The desire and ability to reach #1 in online tournament play, an aggressiveness toward online MTTs which would engender the aforementioned ability, and a site with the liquidity and popularity to be able to reach a wide swath of players with any potential new series.

Throughout my early talks with partypoker, it became clear that they ticked every box and that they just happened to be looking for me at a time that I became available.”

Slick believes that although online poker has been developing for a long time now, there's still room for innovation.


“There’s always room to innovate,” says Slick. “The key, or trick you might say, is to find the right areas within which change would not only be welcome but would be an improvement … throughout many industries, we see examples of change for its own sake and the damage that can do, and that’s the sort of change we must avoid if we’re to innovate successfully.”

He's already got assigned one of his very first tasks: launching partypoker's micro-stake championships.
