Who would have thought that an Architecture graduate would now be the president of the VIP-Gambling.com? Bruno Fitoussi, better known now as the French Ambassador of Poker, has come all the way from Paris to show the world that playing poker could be a lucrative and exciting business. In 1990, Bruno helped organize poker tournaments for a club. That experience was meaningful for Bruno, making him realize that he loves setting up poker games. Then, the very first poker tournament of Aviation Club de France held at the famous Champs Elysee in Paris, France, was Bruno's first creative and managerial stint. Since then, numerous poker games have been organized after that triumphant first poker event in Paris.
Hailed as the 'King', Bruno first got involved with the poker business after completing his Architecture degree. After which, he put up a music company that flourished abundantly for four years. But, the lure of poker has never left Bruno. Therefore, after selling his music company, he pursued his love for poker. Considering his love for poker as an authentic passion rather than a business pursuit, Bruno played mostly high point games and gained a reputation as a clean poker player.
In 1991, Bruno went to Las Vegas for more poker knowledge. There, he was fascinated with high stake games. Bruno considered living in Vegas for good, but his future partner Isabelle, was missing Europe. So, in 1995, Bruno established poker games in Paris' Aviation Club to be with his family. Four years after, Bruno left his Aviation club position to start the VIP-Gaming.
As a poker player, Bruno won the first place in the major tournament in Vienna. This tournament was the No-Limit Hold'em World Heads-Up Championship, where he won over Amarillo Slim Preston, to the surprise of everyone. Bruno also won two big Las Vegas poker plays. Playing poker now comes as a second priority of Bruno, next to his business projects. Nevertheless, Bruno remains to be a powerful presence in the poker tournaments. He claims that he has not stopped enhancing his poker techniques. Bruno admitted that he still wants to improve more on poker to become a better player.
The Poker Euro Finals was also partly organized by Bruno. Then, Bruno created the extraordinary travel agency that has gaming offers named the VIP-Gaming.com. Making the Internet work for his business, Bruno makes use of the online gaming industry together with the wonders of travel. Only an authentic player and a traveler can truly come up with this business idea. Bruno's main goal in establishing this kind of business is to make more people become interested with online gaming while enjoying the fun of traveling.
Bruno was once asked what attracts him to poker. He said that the poker players make him come back to the poker games again and again. Bruno added that he has met the most fascinating people over poker games. Indeed, life for Bruno has been as exciting as a poker match.
