It looks like Partypoker puts the emphasis on their ambassadors, as they've just announced several big names joining them in the recent past.

The site really wants to be the biggest player in the poker industry. They don't only go big on their pro team but announced their full tournament schedule for 2018 with tens of millions in prizes. In fact, the first big festival of the year's, the $15,000,000 POWERFEST, is running at the moment.

Gruissem started his career at Partypoker, his first tournament success came from the site in form of a $200 score, which motivated him to focus more on poker, as he said: “It was this win that drove me to learn more about the game.”

Since his first win "philbort" accumulated more than $3.5 million in online tournament earnings. He turned to the live scene in 2009 when he started to play more and more live tournaments and eventually became one of the best high-roller specialists. His successes in the live tournament circuit earned him the respect of the whole poker community. Philipp is a WPT Alpha8 London, WPT Alpha8 Saint Kitts, EPT Grand Final Monte Carlo High Roller, EPT London High Roller and a WSOP APAC High Roller champion. The total of his live tournament earnings account for $11 million - putting him on the 7th spot of Germany's - pretty impressive - All Time Money List.

Managing Director of Partypoker, Tom Waters said: “I am honoured that Philipp has agreed to join us at partypoker. Philipp is such a well-respected player both in the German and global poker community that he is a perfect fit to join the team. He also has a great character and experience and will bring something a little different to the team.”

Gruissem will play MILLIONS Germany (starting on February 4th) and is currently grinding at Partypoker, playing all the high buy-in events of the POWERFEST.
