Professional poker player Dale "Daleroxxu" Philip has lost his role as a PokerStars Ambassador following a rambunctious World Cup celebration that insulted Spanish citizens.
The incident occurred in Spain after Philip lost out at the UKIPT in Marbella, when he was watching the Netherlands/Spain World Cup match. While still wearing his PokerStars shirt, Philip celebrated a Dutch goal by dancing in front of the mainly Spanish crowd and using a fist and forearm gesture that many in the crowd found to be insulting.
A video of the incident was captured and has been posted below for review:
Philip's contract was due to expire in six months, but was cancelled early due to the incident, at least according to the pro. PokerStars has not commented on the issue.
