Marvin Rettenmaier Signs to Team Party Poker

Party Poker’s squad of sponsored players/brand ambassadors continues to look better and better as the site signs yet another up and comer from the world of professional poker. The latest addition to the team is Germany’s Marvin Rettenmaier, a young player who has already made a serious mark in competitive games across the world.

25 year old Rettenmaier was born in Stuttgart, Germany, now lives in London, England, is an avid guitarist and holds a degree in Management and Business Law. Until recently he played as a member of Titan Poker’s team of professionals, but has now been snatched up by Party Poker. Rettenmaier has cashed $1.7 million through live tournament play, his biggest earnings to date coming from his impressive victory in last year’s France Poker Series. He is the second German currently signed on as a member of Team Party Poker, joining the renowned Bodo Sbrzesny as a representative of the country.

Marvin Rettenmaier played his first event as a member of Team Party Poker at the World Poker Tour World Championship in Las Vegas. Speaking to press about his decision to join up with the squad, Rettenmaier said that “it feels like a natural move” and that he is “looking forward to representing them in WPT events and beyond.” The remarkable accomplishments Rettenmaier has managed in his brief time as a professional poker player should prove his ability to properly represent Party Poker in the future.

Party Poker Debut the First Ever Pokerfest Series

Party Poker is looking to give its legions of fans yet another reason to log onto the online poker site with its upcoming Pokerfest. The festival, which runs for two weeks, will pack in 47 different events and offer up a guaranteed prize pool that comes in at an impressive $3 million.

This year’s Pokerfest marks the first edition of what Party Poker hopes will become an annual tradition. Each day of the online festival is set to include a minimum of three different events that aim to include every level of player. Styles of play will be varied, Party Poker members getting a chance to compete in no-limit hold ‘em (with and without re-buys), pot-limit Omaha (also with or without re-buys) and no-limit hold ‘em six-maximum deep-stack fixed limit. Alongside the regular events will be supplementary promotional prizes, side events, leaderboards and a number of qualifiers. All of these will lead up to the Pokerfest main event. The main event features a $640 buy-in and a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million and will take place at 1.30pm EST on 6th November.

Party Poker’s Pokerfest will kick off on Sunday, 23rd October and run through to Sunday, 6th November. Buy-ins will range wildly, starting at only $1, Party Poker stating that it wants “everyone to be a part of Pokerfest.” Interested site members with accumulated Party Poker loyalty points will also be able to use these to gain entrance to certain events.
