Profile Of Sexy Young Gamer Turned Poker Pro Charlotte Van BrabanderDecember 23, 2010 11:51 am
Sexy young Charlotte Van Brabander has earned a name for herself as being a top gamer, particularly at online shooter video game CounterStrike.
Two years ago the 21 year old Belgium girl competed at the World Championship of Gaming and in the past proudly exclaimed:
“I challenge boys to play against me and most of the times I beat them. Beating guys gives me an extremely happy feeling. I always wanted to show guys that girls can be as good as them in ‘their’ male hobbies.”
In which case, the talented young Belgium must now be over the moon after placing 25th out of 278 players in The Benelux Championship of Online Poker, outlasting such top male competition along the way as Matthias de Meulder, Christophe de Meulder, Thierry van den Berg, Thierry Van den Berg, Joep van den Bijgaart, Pieter de Korver and Ruben Visser.
It was not long ago that Charlotte Van Brabander found a new outlet in which to let her competitive spirit run free in the guise of poker.
Despite just starting out in her poker journey, Charlotte has already attended a Vanessa Rousso poker bootcamp and competed in such tournaments as the EPT Ladies Luxury Poker Event in Monte Carlo and the UKIPT Dublin Main Event before finding success in the Benelux competition.
Being an online gamer at heart, Charlotte says she especially enjoys playing poker online, particularly at PokerStars, where she play MTTs and competes in the Women’s Poker League.
Charlotte Van Brabander has obviously been sharpening her skills nicely while playing on PokerStars Women’s League and believes in using all factors to her advantage. As the poker beauty explains:
“We have to use our image as “tight-female players” at the table. You always have to mislead people in poker. When you are a tough aggressive female it is nice because boys will think you will be a wacko and a very aggressive player. Then you have to tighten up. The same in reverse.”
Well, her tactics certainly seems to be working and we look forward to reporting on Charlotte in the future as her poker career continues to blossom.
