It looks like the party’s over for the former #1 GPI ranked player in the world, Marvin Rettenmaier.
On Sunday, “Mad” Marvin took to Facebook to announce that he and online poker site partypoker, his poker sponsor of roughly 2.5 years, are no longer affiliated.
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!!!
You may recall, Marvin spent two full years in the Global Poker Index top ten before sliding out during the World Series of Poker summer series.
Marvin’s breakup with partypoker is now just one of many recent breakups between poker professionals and their one time online sponsor which include the likes of Jason Somerville, J.C. Tran and even World Series of Poker Champion, Joe Cada.
