PartyPoker has been pushing ahead with the number of its ambassadors. More known faces are joining the portal’s ranks and it’s not at all surprising that the exposure that comes hand-in-hand with the series of partnerships is quite satisfactory should you happen to ask the hosts at PartyPoker. We take a look at the freshest face on the list, Bruno Fitoussi.
Fitoussi’s Love for Poker and Party
French poker player and distinct professional Bruno Fitoussi has always loved poker. In his distinctly playful French accent he has always been effusive about the joy he derives from telling which cards hold the dearest promise of a solid fortune. Aged 59, Mr Fitoussi’s ambassadorship is no chance thing.
Having been a rather known face around Europe, Mr Fitoussi will do precisely what his fame and current standing allow them to do best – he will represent PartyPoker across the continent. He’s not the only French player out there to carry the French touch and apply it to the popularity of the segment.
His fellow countryman, Betrand ‘Elky’ Grospellier is also on the list of ambassadors and he has been on the job for quite some time, having signed up in April 2017. Mr Fitoussi will definitely have a few tricks to learn when it comes to being a good public figure, but he also seems to be a quick study.
The Known Pro – 30 Years in Biz and Counting
Fitoussi hasn’t been the most grossing poker player in the world, that’s for sure. He did have to overcome some significant disadvantages though in his own time. France has not been the most welcoming country when it comes to the game. In fact, it took it quite a bit to legalize poker and pool players across borders, and that only happened recently.
It was in such context that Fitoussi was a known poker player for 30 years, raking in as much as $3 million in his lifelong earnings from live action poker alone. His online winnings and private games are anyone’s guess of course, but rumor has it he has been busy in all this time.
Even though he has never made it big in WSOP, he has been steadily adding to his bankroll owing to the event. The WSOP pow-wows are estimated to have added as much as $1.5 million to his overall winnings from live tournaments.
Quite the Legacy
Mr Fitoussi is not a random case of poker professional. He has been known as both a poker consultant, but also a poker commentator, covering the latest developments on the scene and making public appearances. He has been a known face on TV shows as well.
In other words, PartyPoker could have hardly done a better job looking for someone to represent them than the quirky-looking French professional. With his husky voice, distinct French accent and solid presence on the European poker scene, it’s easy to see why he is so loved by all and sundry and will make a great ambassador. Mr Fitoussi’s future is about to get even more exciting.
