Lali Tournier and Irene ‘Frogy’ Albarrán have today officially become PokerStars ambassadors.
The news came from the Bahamas where both are preparing for different roles ahead of the PokerStars Players Championship.
To poker players and eGamers in Brazil, Lali Tournier’s name is not one that needs much of an introduction.
As well as being a poker pro and streamer, Lali is a member of the top Brazilian eSports organisation Furia, sponsored by PokerStars.
And it goes without saying those skills extend to the poker table.
Lali is also a two-time World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) champion, with numerous live poker cashes in major tournament across the globe.
She’s now looking ahead at a chance to top that. Her sights are now firmly set on the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC). That gets underway in the Bahamas later today.
“Thirteen years ago I started playing $0.25 Sit & Go’s on PokerStars, and I remember looking at the Team Pro page and would imagine my picture there”, she said.
“It was a very distant dream. But now, my dream has come true, and it is even better than I could wish for; being a Team Pro, joining my husband Rafa and one of my best friends, Akkari.”
IRENE “FROGY” ALBARRÁN
Irene Albarran, known as ‘Frogy’, is a respected poker coach and Twitch streamer. She joins PokerStars as a member of the PokerStars commentary team in Spain.
Her first ambassadorial duty? That will be commentating the PSPC for the Spanish PokerStars community.
“I have fulfilled one of my dreams; to be the voice of such a big poker community, alongside a great team who also feel like family, representing PokerStars,” said Irene.
“I feel very excited about everything that is to come. There are going to be many beautiful moments, and being able to share these times with the community as well as the team is something that excites me a lot. The best is yet to come!”
