Ricardo "Mat3usPT" Mateus
"I think that together we will be able to do fantastic things"
Hailing from Portugal, Mateus made the switch from recreational player to poker streamer in 2018 by setting up his own Twitch channel.
Since then he's grown a small community from his streams, and has begun taking more time away from streaming to study and improve his game.
"I am extremely flattered and excited to represent a brand like 888poker. I think that together we will be able to do fantastic things and raise the game of poker in Portugal in a fun and responsible way."

The youngest member of the 888poker StreamTeam, Gibson built up his bankroll playing micro stakes and hopes to inspire a new generation of poker players by playing on his Twitch channel. He first started playing poker in 2017, and is still working to improve his game and see how far poker can take him.
"I’m very excited to try and build up the 888poker StreamTeam on Twitch!" said Gibson. "I feel that the more different sites getting involved is great for not only Twitch but poker in general. I look forward to helping 888poker move forward and create exciting opportunities for poker players."
