Team PartyPoker.com just welcomed German poker pro Marvin Rettenmaier to the fold. Rettenmaier joins Tony G, Kara Scott, Mike Sexton, and fellow German Bodo Sbrzesny to the team of PartyPoker sponsored players.
At the ripe old age of 25 years young, Rettenmaier has accumulated almost $1.7 million since 2009 in live tournament cashes which places him as one of Europe's top talents. He took down the France Poker Series Grand Final in 2011, finished runner-up in 2011 in PokerStars European Poker Tour Deauville Main Event, and ended the 2011 World Poker Tour Venice Main Event in third place.
Rettenmaier was introduced during the World Poker Tour World Championship at Bellagio in Las Vegas over the weekend as a PartyPoker Team Pro.
“I am pleased to join Team PartyPoker.com,” said Rettenmaier. “It feels like a natural move for me and I am looking forward to representing them in WPT events and beyond.”
Previously sponsored by Titan Poker, both Rettenmaier and Sam Trickett parted ways with Titan Poker earlier in May. PartyPoker took the opportunity to pick up one of poker's hot, young free agents.
"I'm so stoked to welcome Marvin to Team PartyPoker.com," said fellow team member Kara Scott. "He's a seriously talented poker player which makes his addition no surprise at all. On top of that though, he's a friend and one of the most fun people to hang out with on the poker circuit. I'm looking forward to many more nights of karaoke, Mad Marvin style! “
“Poker needs characters and Marvin is certainly one of those," added Mike Sexton. "I think he’ll be an asset and I am delighted that he has joined the team.”
