Winning a bracelet is the perfect way to announce yourself to the poker world. Reigning victorious in the WSOPE Main Event, Rozvadov in November 2017 not only catapulted Marti Roca de Torres into the spotlight but landed him a hefty payday of more than €1M!
A man with three postgraduate degrees, the decision to turn professional was certainly an educated one. Teaching economics during the day and gracing the felt at night, Marti’s impressive poker results soon drew his focus away from the classroom.
Despite over €1.3M in live tournament winnings (sitting 13th on the Spanish all-time money list at the time of writing) and €150,000 online, the Spaniard can often be found playing comfortably within his bankroll at the mid-stakes cash game tables. Perhaps this is a sign of maturity, after discovering the game at the relatively late age of 29.
The flexibility cash games provide has allowed Marti the freedom to manage his other responsibilities – namely, as a father to his two daughters! However, he still regularly finds the time to put in long MTT sessions. You can follow Marti’s pursuit of yet another major tournament score here!
