Rettenmaier Splits with Partypoker

Rettenmaier Splits with Partypoker

Monday, 13 October 2014

Partypoker's Marvin Rettenmaier has become the latest player to part ways with his sponsor. In what seems to be a wave of change sweeping through the poker world, the German pro announced last night that he would no longer be representing the company on the live circuit.

Writing on his Facebook wall, Rettenmaier explained:

"I would like to thank partypoker for the good collaboration and the fun times over the last 2.5 years.

Don't worry, just because I won't be with party anymore doesn't mean that I'll need to decrease the partying in my lifestyle - I checked my contract...

I'm playing day 1 of EPT London today and since I won the first tournament with partypoker it's just common sense that I will win the first one without them as well!

Good luck everybody!!!"

During his time with the online site, Rettenmaier managed to win seven live events, including WPT, EPT and WSOP honours. On top of that he also managed to amass more than $1.6 million in prize money.

Aside from his success at the felt, Marvin has established himself as one of the most affable pros in the game. Known for his laidback attitude and love of partying, it's likely he'll find himself a new poker partner in the coming months.
