Bruno “King” Fitoussi picked up his first ever set of hole cards back in 1977. Playing for matchsticks with friends at college, the Frenchman cut his poker teeth on variations of Single Draw Lowball, laying the foundations for the versatile all-round player he would later become.
Bruno currently has just shy of $3M in live tournament winnings to his name, and with cashes dating back to 1991, he has demonstrated longevity – something that is so difficult to achieve at the mentally demanding elite level.
Despite competing in some of the world’s biggest games, Bruno continues to enjoy poker’s social aspect. The 60-year-old grew up playing live poker, and continues to meet a stream of diverse and interesting characters at the tables, of which only poker could unite.
Bruno has enjoyed success in every variation of poker. It’s perhaps fitting that his biggest cash - $1.2M at the 2007 WSOP – came in the multi game H.O.R.S.E event. A tournament filled with mixed game specialists and legends of poker alike, Bruno drew on all his experience to navigate through the super tough field and land an impressive second place finish.
With his outlandish hair and charismatic presence to match, Bruno is endlessly entertaining – look out for him on the partypoker.fr tables, representing the EU network!
