Poker Online: Full Tilt Poker fichó al director de cine español Roberto Santiago

Compartir esto
Full Tilt Poker fichó al director de cine español Roberto Santiago. Aunque no se trata de un jugador profesional, su afición por el poker viene desde su adolescencia cuando se reunía con amigos a jugar. Ya de adulto se lo ha visto participar en varios torneos nacionales e internacionales. De hecho, en mayo de 2009 consiguió una mesa final en el WPT de Barcelona.

A continuación el perfil que publicaron en el sitio de Full Tilt Poker -lamentablemente en inglés-:

• Spanish Film Director
• 2nd place at 2010 WPT Barcelona

Roberto is a renowned writer and director of Spanish cinema. His films include “The Longest Penalty in the World”, “Al final del Camino” and “Ivan’s Dream”. He is also behind the first major European poker movie, “Without Limits”.

Away from the camera, Roberto’s two passions are poker and soccer.

Roberto has been playing poker with friends since high school and has been a regular at the tables ever since. After playing in a tournament in 2008, he vowed to make a film about poker and play as often as his schedule would allow. A man of his word, he has achieved both goals.

His commitment to playing more regularly was rewarded with several final table appearances at tournaments throughout Spain. In May 2009, Roberto reached the final table at the WPT Barcelona. The €3,200 buy-in event attracted a field of 326 players from around the world, and Roberto’s spectacular run was like a plot from one of his own movies. His second place finish earned him €139K ($171K).
