Online PR News – 15-September-2009 – – Madrid- As the captain of Team770 Spain announced his appointment as well as the incorporation of the team itself he could barely imagine that few hours later he will be completing the first day at the office with a brilliant win. He managed to secure a seat to the Irish Winter Festival (a three days long, €1,650 buy-in tournament) along with a package covering the travel expenses. Of course he did so at the poker room sponsoring his team. He couldn't be more happy.
Paco Torres, also known as "El Tren" (The Train), is the gifted player that will be leading this new Spanish poker team supported by Poker 770. Before the international opening, the team will take part in the Spanish Championship to be held by September 25th in Murcia, Spain.
Paco Torres, playing under the nick ELTREN770, is extremely proud of his new tenure: "everyone loves to play under the support of a poker room, but with Poker 770 I'm particularly delighted" he commented. When asked about their feelings on Poker 770 he went on: "this is a room of the right size, being part of the iPoker network guarantees a nice volume of players at any level, any game; but at the same time is not that big as to attract the grinders, so the more novel players have more room to evolve their game". He made yet another very sensible point: "we're not looking at a high rollers team, quite the contrary, we aim to put together a set of players with room and willingness to mature their game and take it to the next level. As a captain it will be my personal duty to help them move up".
Actually we just learned that along with him there will be Brais Pena a young player from northwest Spain. Paco first meet him earlier this year when Brais made it to the Spanish Championship after winning an on line qualifier and immediately he did impress him. The team will be initially completed with "GrumpyDad". This veteran - by internet poker standards - will contribute with his international experience as well as his recognized Omaha game.
The team will actually grew by year end as there are ongoing conversation with a well known female player, but more importantly to really deliver on the team philosophy a new team member will be chosen from a mixed system.
Paco described that system as follows: "We will be running a league with various buy-in level, to be an equal opportunity competition, including freerolls. But we'll also ask the players to write an open letter describing his profile. We look forward to a consistent player and the right attitude towards the game", he continued "the idea is to have a fixed core and a number of floating members, so anyone that is really proving his value on the on line games can make it to the official team and enjoy a live game. From there the sky is the limit".
Paco Torres began playing Hold'Em about four years ago almost by chance, with little if any understanding of the game and no poker books or online schools at reach, not to mention the complete override of bank management practices. But his strong entrepreneur personality and plenty of aggressiveness at the tables helped him to became a small winner and to evolve his game.
His game of choice are Hold'Em No Limit Tournaments, particularly live games. He was proved his game by consistently being in the Top 10 in the independent ranking of PocketFives.com, or the three straight cashes at the Spanish Championship (CEP) while being fifth at the current Spanish Poker Tour (SPT) season.
