888poker, the sponsor of the 2018 WSOP and the second largest online poker site in the world, recently announced the addition of Spanish poker pro, Ana Marquez (cover image) as its brand ambassador.
888poker has a history of appointing a variety of poker pros as their ambassadors, both men and women from across the globe, and that has immensely helped the brand grow. Among the prominent names who are part of Team 888poker are Dominik Nitsche, Martin Jacobson, Chris Moorman, Sofia Lövgren, Kara Scott, Natalie Hof, Parker Talbot, Vivian Saliba, UFC Welterweight champion George St. Pierre and former footballer Denílson Pereira Neves.
This new association would also help 888poker maximize on its two existing Spanish resources, the reigning World Series of Poker Europe Main Event champion, Marti Roca, and former November Niner, Fernando Pons. Now with the addition of Marquez to the team, the three will likely spearhead 888poker’s assault on the new shared European liquidity market that includes Spain, Italy, Portugal, and France.
Marquez herself is a well accomplished poker player with a very impressive poker resume, that shows more than $1.2 Million in live poker earnings. She started playing poker professionally in 2009 and quickly rose to prominence both online and live, the latter due to a deep run that resulted in a 10th place finish at the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for $155K. Her biggest win, however, was in 2013 at the Hollywood Poker Open for more than $320K. She slowed down in 2014 and 2015 but came back with bang and started putting in volume in live events once again.
2018 was another breakout year for her as she took down a high-roller tournament at the 888poker LIVE series in Bucharest. And she just most recently made a final table at the 2018 WSOP, finishing in sixth place in the $3K NLHE 6-Handed event for $67,116.
Marquez shared the exciting news on her Twitter handle –
