Hello everyone, my name is Anthony Rodrigues and I live in Brussels.
Being only 23 years old, I'm the youngest in the team but I've been playing with friends since I was 17.
By the time I was 18 I had played in a a few cash games in the Holland Casino, whilst waiting to turn 21.
I played quite reguilarly in private parties in Brussels. After that I started playing on the internet, using quite a tight strategy and playing in tournaments I quickly learned that you could use a bankroll to play in Belgian casinos.
At 21, after finishing my studies in Tourism, I decided to go semi-pro. I had managed to create a sufficient bankroll to play in live cash games and some tournaments, but after 1 year I was really broke so I had to head back to the net and start again. Since then I've played in loads of live tournaments, I play regularly at the Namur Casino where I've won 25k and I'm in the 2011 top 10 players.
So it's been a good year for me, especially when I finished 3rd in a Slovenian Deepstack. I also qualified for the Partouche Poker Tour in Cannes, where I made the final table and finished 8th out of 260 players.
I've also just finished 12th out of 308 players in a Belgian Deepstack Poker tournament in Namur, under the colours of my new sponsor, Poker770.
See you soon in the live tournaments at the Poker770 tables.
