Bruno Fitoussi will be part of the brand ambassadors who will be promoting poker operations in Europe for partypoker. This has come a few months after his friend Bertrand Elky Grospellier was given a similar task by GVC Holdings.
Fitoussi will have his first outing as a brand ambassador in the Millions UK at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. This live poker festival is set to kick off on September 29th at the host’s venue with £8.5 million in guaranteed prize money. There is also a guaranteed prize pool of £5 million for the Main Event.
Fitoussi will also be part of the Caribbean Poker Party and WPT Deepstacks at a later date in the year under his brand ambassador role. Fitoussi has been in the world of poker gaming and has been a player in the largest live poker tournaments and this might be one of the reasons he earned himself this position. As the brand ambassador, he will be sharing feedback with partypoker Live team to assist the operator in shaping the festival schedules and other poker product related issues in Europe. If you follow him in social media websites, he might also share bonus codes for partypoker; you never know!
It is evident that Fitoussi will be joining a team of poker pros from his homeland, Grospellier. These people have been ambassadors for partypoker since the beginning of the year. Some of these pros include Isaac Haxton, Philipp Gruissem and Ludovic Geilich.
Fitoussi is considered as the man who popularized poker in his homeland and in Europe. Back in the 1990s, he introduced the game to the French public. This was at the Aviation Club de France and this has since become one of France’s premium live poker destinations.
More to his career as a pro poker player, he has also been a commentator on a couple of poker events on different TV shows over the years. This has made him earn a wealth of experience and he has also built reputation as one of poker’s most notable personalities.
During his professional poker career he has earned four WSOP Hall of Fame nominations. Last year he was honoured by the World Poker Tour for his contributions to poker. Last summer Fitoussi earned WPT Honours Award. Mike Sexton also received the award and was appointed as the Chairman of partypoker last spring.
Fitoussi was the man who introduced WPT brand to the France poker community. In the first season, the major live tournament travelled to the country for the Euro Finals of Poker.
During his participations in the live poker events, he boasts of having almost $3 million. In 2001 he won the inaugural World Heads-Up Poker Championship and this made him emerge victorious over Amrillo Preston in the final. In the 2003 WSOP Main Event he was at 15th place. In the game of H.O.R.S.E in the 2007 WSOP he finished in the runner-up with a winning of $50,000. He finished in second place to Kassem Deeb to collect his career’s largest cash of $1,278,720 in the Players Championship.
