Liverpool football star signs as 888poker ambassador

Luis Suarez is the latest to join  888poker’s impressive roster of talent, adding to  the recent signings of Sofia Lovgren and Xuan Lui. The Uruguayan signs soon after scooping the  2014 Professional Footballer €™s Association Player of the Year  award for his impressive performances on the pitch, scoring 31 league goals in a hugely successful season.

Apparently Uruguay’s all-time leading goalscorer is a keen poker player, but he’s also  prone to controversial incidents and it remains to be seen whether his card game will have as much bite (sorry!) as his performances on the football field.  

In April 2013 Suarez was handed a huge  ten-match ban after biting Chelsea defender  Branislav Ivanovic –  the second biting incident of his career.  The 27-year-old also served  an  eight-game suspension during the 2011-12 season after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United €™s  Patrice Evra.  However, in a season leading up to the World Cup in Brazil, Suarez appears to have curbed such behaviour.

Poker might be  a non-contact affair, but we think there are still a few misdemeanors Suarez could pick up.  Perhaps  Liverpool’s number seven might be  tempted into the murky world of slowrolling? PokerPlayer is also looking forward to the moment when he waves an imaginary card at the dealer, only to realise there are two right in front of him…

Joking aside, Luis Suarez is a huge name in world sport and another big signing  for 888poker.  He  will become an integral member of Team 888poker, regularly playing online on the site as well as participating in live events and money-can €™t-buy experiences.
