Partypoker has extended its contract with Roberto Romanello. The professional poker player had signed a short-term contract with the online poker site and wore the partypoker patch while playing at the latest World Series of Poker (WSOP). Since his short-term contract has now been extended, the Welsh poker player will continue as the ambassador of partypoker till after WSOP 2017.
A partypoker blog post quotes Romanello as saying, “I was very impressed with a lot of their ideas and plans for moving forward. It’s not a surprise that partypoker is growing at a fast rate; there are a lot of players out there who are impressed with the positive changes partypoker have made recently.”
He said that deciding to sign up at partypoker was easy because it is very easy to work with the partypoker team. According to him, his contract was extended partly because he is now working for the Triple Crown, which is what he wants to achieve very badly.
The extended deal now requires Romanello to travel to Morocco to take part in the Mazagan 10 High Roller event. He will also take part in the Cardiff leg of the Grand Prix Poker Tour (GPPT), which is just round the corner, the Caribbean Poker Party, and the World Poker Tour National Ireland. In addition, he will be participating in the $109+ buy-in tournaments, which will be held at partypoker, under the moniker “TheWelshWizard.”
The Welshman is eager to become the winner of the Triple Crown. Almost every poker player dreams about winning the Triple Crown, but Romanello is very serious about it. In 2010, he won the seventh season of the European Poker Tour (EPT) Prague Main Event. The following year, he won the World Poker Tour (WPT) Bratislava Main Event. To win the Triple Crown, he only needs to grab a WSOP bracelet. Although he has come very close to it, he hasn’t been successful so far.
He finished seventh in the $3k NL Hold’em Shootout at the WSOP 2012, but busted in the fifth place in the €2,700 NL Hold’em Six-handed event. He finished fourth in the €3,250 PL Omaha tournament at the WSOPE 2015. He also finished third in the $1k No Limit Hold’em tournament at the WSOP 2016.
If he succeeds in winning a WSOP gold bracelet, Romanello will join the ranks of Triple Crown winners Roland De Wolfe, Gavin Griffin, Bertrand Grospellier, Jake Cody, and Davidi Kitai.
