Michael Greco, the British actor, also a poker player who lately won a World Series of Poker final table, has signed for Littlewoods Poker in a financing deal.
The UK gaming site will be represented by the ex-actor who played Eastenders’ Beppe DiMarco for six years, for the European Poker Tour.
“When I first started getting interested in the game, I was just playing with friends and learning the basics, I’m delighted that Littlewoods Poker has chosen to sponsor me for the new season. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been trying to stay away from the limelight and the celebrity lifestyle that I had when I was in Eastenders. I’m still working as an actor I’ve also been concentrating very hard on my poker,” said Greco, who has now been playing for over five years.
