ANDREAS TRIPBACHER BIOGRAPHY
When I was a kid I played 5-Card Draw poker with my friends just for fun. A few years later, my family organized a home game with other family members and friends. The first few years, we played 5-Card draw every weekend. Then, when the poker boom of 2007 took off, we started playing and learning No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em for the first time. From that moment, I was hooked on poker and I wanted to win every time we played. Of course, I didn’t always come out ahead. In fact, I lost more than I was winning.
Then, on June 10, 2007, my best friend persuaded me to go to a local casino for a live poker tournament and I finished in 3rd place. Throughout the following years, I played in the local tournaments as often as possible. A few tournament victories later, I applied as a dealer at the local casino and worked with them for about two years dealing cards. During this time, I learned a lot about how to read tells and take advantage of players lack of skill.
My online career:
I started playing online poker in 2007 with play money on PokerStars. Then, in 2008, I began to gamble with real money. During that time I was just a little fish and after learning more about poker, the little fish became a shark. The Shark was swimming in the sea in 2009, I began to win more often but was not playing much volume. In 2010, I was grinding more seriously while bringing in profits.
In 2011, my daughter was born and I was unable to play as often as I did in previous years. After a year passed, I noticed changes in the game of poker.
For the next three years I had to make adjustments in my game. Each year I started to improve and regain my form. In 2016, I started to make profits again while playing more volume. That year I played over 1,500 tournaments on PokerStars plus some live events and now I am back on track to reach new heights.
