There is one name that will forever be associated with the colorful and charismatic existence of the Dutch poker professional; Marcel Luske. From his trademark upside down sunglasses to his demeanor and wit he displays at the tables, Luske has been a polarizing figure in the poker world for some time, and with the power of PokerStars and his recent addition as a TeamPro, we’re likely to hear more about this particular “Flying Dutchman” for year to come.
Many people remember Luske for his remarkable two year run at the WSOP Main Event in 2003 and 2004, where he chained together a 14th place finish and a 10th place finish back to back for an impressive $438,000 combined. What the observer probably remembers more than the impressive poker being player was the colorful commentary and antics that Luske displayed for the cameras, showing the casual viewer the lighter side of poker, while still delivering solid play and making a name for himself in the process. He is well known for being able to accumulate chips in a hurry, and is not afraid to go broke at any time; reckless and fearless at the same time.
Casino poker has treated him well, but being able to find a home with PokerStars as a TeamPro, Luske may find a second life in the poker world. As the leading Dutch money winner in tournament poker, Luske and his nearly $4 million in tournament earnings will surely be making his presence felt in tournament all over Europe representing the PokerStars brand and looking to add to his 10 six figure scores in tournaments worldwide. You can find him playing at PokerStars under the name “Marcel Luske” and it’s never been easier to download, deposit, and get in the action against him or any of the other TeamPro members.
