World Poker Tour Champions Club member Roberto Romanello is to sport a partypoker patch while he is in Las Vegas chasing down the coveted “Triple Crown” of live poker titles.
Welshman Romanello is one of the most popular figures in the world of poker, but also one of the most feared as his friendly and chatty demeanour at the tables hides the fact he is a phenomenal poker talent.
Romanello has almost $3.2 million in live tournament winnings thanks in part to him winning the European Poker Tour Prague Main Event for €640,000 in 2010, and the World Poker Tour Bratislava Main Event in 2011 for €140,685.
Live poker has what is known as the Triple Crown, similar to other sports’ Grand Slam. Only a handful of players have won a European Poker Tour Main Event, World Poker Tour Main Event, and a World Series of Poker bracelet, and Romanello is a WSOP win away from becoming part of that exclusive club.
“The Welsh Wizard” came close to a Triple Crown last autumn when he finished fourth in a €3,250 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament at the WSOP Europe in Berlin, and he is determined to capture that elusive title in Las Vegas this summer.
Speaking of representing partypoker in Las Vegas, Romanello said: “I am thrilled to be wearing the partypoker patch during my hunt for the triple crown in Vegas. Like other professionals, I have noticed all the great work partypoker has been doing this past year so I was keen to discuss how I could work with them to continue the resurgence of the site. I will be playing a range of events including the $10,000 Main Event at the Rio and the $1,000,000 guaranteed partypoker WPT500 at the ARIA.”
Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters spoke of his delight of adding Romanello to the current roster of top poker talent: “It is a pleasure to have such a prestigious player as Roberto join the team. Roberto is the ultimate professional and he will be playing a variety of events in Vegas sporting the partypoker patch whilst also talking to players about our upcoming Caribbean Poker Party in November.”
Romanello joins other partypoker ambassadors Tony Dunst, Patrick Leonard, and the legend that is Mike Sexton in Las Vegas sporting the famous partypoker patch.
