Roy "The Boy" Brindley Joins Victor Chandler Poker

It has just been announced that UK born poker pro Roy “The Boy” Brindley has now joined Victor Chandler as a resident pro, as well as the site’s Team Captain.
Currently living in Ireland, the 41 year old took up playing poker in 2001 after falling on hard times and the following year his career got off to a great start after winning seven ranking tournaments with buy-ins ranging between £50 and £500.
That year, Brindley went on to accumulate $84,076 in winnings as a nouveau-pro and currently boasts in excess of $800,000 life time earnings, his biggest score coming in 2007 at the $7,500 Poker Masters of Europe, which he won for a $120,000 pay-day.
Previously a sponsored pro at Ladbrokes for over six years, Roy “The Boy” Brindley has now signed with Victor Chandler Poker, a site which places big emphasis on a series of live tournaments known as the European Masters of Poker (EMOP).
Commenting on what Brindley’s joining Victor Chandler Poker means to the site, head of poker Andy Horne said:
“We are very happy to have Roy “The Boy” captaining Team VC at EMOP and we are sure that his presence at the live events will have a positive effect on the performance of the Team VC players.”
“Ultimately we wish for our players to have as enjoyable a time as possible at the EMOP events as well as to be given every opportunity to succeed and we have every confidence that Roy will make that wish a reality for all concerned.”
Roy “The Boy” Brindley famously published his book entitled ‘Life’s a Gamble’ last year, in which he talked about his life, as well as his past gambling addiction. These days Roy has managed to reign in that problem and takes a much more relaxed approach to the whole gambling affair.
Commenting about his new appointment at Victor Chandler, Brindley said:
“Poker has become way too serious in recent years. Yes we are all chasing a life-changing result but you have to accept that winners inevitably outnumber losers by a ratio of nine-to-one in tournaments and, consequently, it’s prudent to view ‘a cash as reason to rejoice and elimination an excuse to party!”
“I can promise Victor Chandler’s EMOP qualifiers plenty of the latter and hopefully some of the former at the EMOP’s superb venues starting in Portugal in just three weeks time.”
