Interview with Former Head of 888poker Hili Shakked
Throughout his entire 11-year run at the helm of operations at 888poker, save once in 2010, Hili Shakked declined to give interviews or open up to the press, always preferring to let his colleagues and team share the spotlight.
After stepping away from the company, Shakked agree to give us an exclusive interview. We covered a litany of topics, including the ups and downs Hili and his department experienced, how Black Friday was received internally at 888poker, how he led the department to branch into live poker offerings and partnerships for the first time, and much more.
This is interview offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at how 888poker operates, as well as Hili’s opinions regarding where both live and online poker is headed in the future.
