German born poker player Marvin Rettenmaier is the newest member to join Team Party Poker after recently leaving Titan Poker.
Now living in London he will join the renowned list of Party Poker’s sponsored players, and he said of his decision, “I am pleased to join Team Party Poker. It feels like a natural move for me and I am looking forward to representing them in WPT events and beyond.”
Since 2009 the 25 year old has earned more than $1.7 million from live tournaments, and with six titles under his belt will be a popular addition to the Part Poker Team. He is known as a party animal and Kara Scott, his friend and fellow team member said, “I am so stoked to welcome Marvin to Team Party Poker. He is a seriously talented poker player, which makes his addition no surprise at all.” She added that he is great fun to be with and was looking forward to karaoke nights in the ‘Mad Marvin’ style.
Another member of the team, Tony G, also welcomed him to the line-up. “It is great to have Marvin on board,” he said. “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 his passport – he is also running good.”
Rettenmaier, who is a university graduate and has a degree in management and business law, was also welcomed to Team Party Poker by Mike Sexton who, at 64, is the elder statesman of the team. A one-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) champion he said the German player is just what the game needs. “Poker needs characters and Marvin is certainly one of those. I think he will be an asset and I am delighted that he has joined the team.”
