Brazil has become a hotbed for online poker, with numerous recent major events seeing winners front the land of samba and sun. 888poker announced a new ambassador from this growing market on Monday.

Alexandre “Cavalito” Mantovani joins the 888 ambassador roster and will represent the team online and at live events. With $361,407 in live earnings and significant winnings online, he’s excited adding his name to the 888 ambassador ranks.

“I can’t speak for others, but ever since I’ve started my career as a poker player, I’ve always dreamed of being a professional representing a poker site,” he said in a news release. “And I’m very happy to have reached another goal in my career.”

Joining the 888poker team

With steady cashes since 2016, Mantovani has proven to be a strong, dedicated player, 888poker officials note. He ranks 105th on the Brazilian all-time money list.

Mantovani’s best finish came in 2016, when he placed sixth place in the DeepStack Championship Series for $45,620.

Beyond his own play, 888’s newest ambassador also works as a poker coach. 888 is not only his newest team, but the Brazilian pro has some fitting history with eights. He was born in 1988 and his favorite hand is 88.

In a recent tournament, Mantovani ended Day 2 with 88 big blinds – “undoubtedly a sign that he is meant to be an 888poker ambassador,” the company notes in announcing his signing.

Catching Mantovani online

888 players can expect to see more of Mantovani in the coming months. He’s active on social media and will offer players entries into special 888poker freerolls.

His social media presence will also feature unique promotions and ticket giveaways. Poker fans can also find him regularly streaming on his Twitch poker channel.
