Navarro initially joined the 888poker team in November 2022, where she joins Ian Simpson, Vivian Saliba, Kara Scott and Alexandre Mantovani in wearing the 888poker patch on live tables.

Born in Alicante in Spain, Navarro is a professional poker player who resides in Portugal.

She recorded her first significant victory in 2014 at the Circuito Nacional de Poker 888 (CNP888) Main Event in Valencia, where she received a $22k prize for coming in first place.

After moving to London in 2015, Navarro went on to win in several live tournaments in London, including one that saw her take $9k away from a three-way deal.

In 2019, Navarro took on the CNP888 tournament again in Alicante, her home town, where she took first place again, this time for $35k.

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event in 2022 was a particularly significant event for Navarros, as it saw her place at a respectable 241st for almost $50k in total.

Navarro is currently the only woman in the Spanish national poker circuit to hold two prestigious titles at the same time.

Navarro said: "I am super excited and grateful to be part of a strong and diverse team of ambassadors at 888poker. The brand is dedicated to player enjoyment and satisfaction, which are some of the reasons I decided to wear the 888poker patch.

"With so much love for the game and an eye to making it even more player focused, I’m looking forward to representing 888poker with pride!"
