Team PartyPoker Welcomes Marvin RettenmaierMay 22, 2012 11:39 am
German pro Marvin “Mad Marvin” Rettenmaier left Team Titan only last week but has already been snapped up by PartyPoker, who wasted no time adding the talented player to their stable of pros.
Since 2009, the 25-year-old has amassed $1,696,556 in live tournament cashes with his biggest victories coming last year at the €3k Spanish Poker Tour Grand Finale for €111,000 ($150,696), the €1,800 France Poker Series Grand Final for €244,036 ($332,470), and this year at the €2k EPT Grand Final Monte Carlo for €118,300 ($156,186).
Following his signing, the Management and Business Law graduate commented: “I am pleased to join Team PartyPoker.com. It feels like a natural move for me and I am looking forward to representing them in WPT events and beyond.”
Setting their new signing straight to work, Marvin Rettenmaier is currently representing PartyPoker at the $25k WPT World Championship in Las Vegas, which started at the weekend. So far he has managed to make it through to Day 4 of the competition and is lying in 13th spot with 45 players remaining from the original 152 player field.
In the meantime, the young German pro has now become part of a team which includes fellow German Bodo Sbrzesny, Kara Scott, Mike Sexton, as well as PartyPoker team captain Tony G. In true outspoken fashion, Tony G had this to say about his new team member:
“It’s great to have Marvin on board, I have always said he is a player of true character. He has the Germanic mathematical game and he has heart, he is winning, he gets drunk, he loses passport – he is also running good. He needs my guiding hand. If anybody other than my son John Eames was to get a deal it would have to be Marvin.”
