Fitoussi, also known as ‘the King of Europe' has enjoyed success in some of the world's biggest poker tournaments. Most notably in 2001, he won the World Heads-Up Poker Championship (1st edition) beating Amarillo ‘Slim' Preston in the final. Fitoussi was also the runner-up of the WSOP HORSE $50K (Players Championship) in 2007 and 15th in the WSOP Main Event in 2003. Fitoussi has been nominated four times for the prestigious WSOP Hall of Fame.

Speaking in his new role as ambassador for partypoker LIVE, Fitoussi said: "I am thrilled to join the partypoker LIVE team - partypoker has always held a special place in my heart, so to be working with them is a great privilege for me. I have a vast wealth of industry experience that I am excited to share, and I look forward to getting involved with all aspects of the business."

With a packed agenda of events over the coming months, Fitoussi's first tournament will be MILLIONS UK. He said: "I can't wait to come back to Nottingham to Dusk Till Dawn for MILLIONS UK, and the Caribbean Poker Party in The Bahamas is a ‘must do' for any poker player. To end 2018, I will head to Deauville for the WPT Deepstacks in December [3-9 December]."

I am truly happy for this guy and his promotion and all of this but if his only there to give feedback from the live events to PP then they could have initiate a couple market research/exit poll companies to do the same at a much cheaper price with more definitive results.

The game of the ambassadors, still holds, from what it looks like.
Another addition to the team that party poker has.
Wonder how much he will be making by being an ambassador.
They must have good perks besides freebies and stuff..

not sure why the hell one would need an ambassador who is like totally unheard of to the vast majority of recreational poker players. but they not our problem really, party poker is paying him from their own pockets, and they have the right to hire anyone they want
 Mober05/08/2018 13:24:13 GMT
Some people have to know him. I didnt though, but i am not up to date Smile
With sites keep hiring people as ambassadors, they must be making a return,
from the advertisement.
It must depend on picking the right persons.

There are some underlying money launder schemes present throughout the whole poker community, I cannot grasp it fully yet but so many meaningless sponsorships announced every month (with people who has zero social media presence ergo very little potential outreach as an 'ambassador') you just know there is something fishy going on...

I think when you have more ambassadors you will have more to gain but only on the conditions that those ambassadors to know how to promote this poker room and to be little stars or professional players. In this way you can attract more players. Party poker will get strong with these ambassadors.
