With a competitive streak and determination to improve, as a youth Ramón dreamt of playing professional soccer in his homeland of Spain. After completing a degree in Sports Science and a spell in football coaching, he turned his passion for competition into a successful career at the online poker tables.
A string of notable tournament victories was to follow, with Ramón recording wins in almost all the regular tourneys available at PokerStars.es. Moving to the live tournament circuit, in 2018 he managed to win a Platinum Pass that took him all the way to the PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship in The Bahamas. Facing many of the world’s best players in a $25,000 buy-in tournament brought out the best in Ramón, and he emerged victorious with first place and $5.1M, the biggest payday of his career.
Online and off, Ramón specialises in Hold’em tournament play, and can often be found playing Spin & Go’s or other tournaments on PokerStars.es. In his role as a member of Team PokerStars Pro he’s keen to play more big live tourneys, learn more about Omaha and some of the other variants available, and to show people how far hard work and dedication can take you.
