3 - WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?
Lisbon, Portugal

4 - TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
I"m Portuguese, born and raised in Lisbon and I was (still am) in the Portuguese Army for 21 years. I live in the UK for about 2 years now, work in part time, love friendship, love poker and a few beers!!!

5 - WHAT IS YOUR POKER BACKGROUND?
I started to play poker with some friends in a poker comunity called "Futpoker" and I was lucky to learn there almost everything I know about poker and most important I made friends for life!

6 - WHAT IS YOUR PLAYING STYLE?
I"m a tight player!

7 - WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE POKER PLAYER AND WHY?
I have many favourite poker players, but if I have to chose one I have to say Sam Tricket. Why? I watched him play many times and for me he is the best game reader and takes the most profit he can with his hands.

8 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ONLINE POKER SITE AND WHAT IS YOUR POKER ID THERE?
I dont have a favourite, I play where I find good MTTs and good promotions.

9 - WHAT ARE YOUR POKER ACHIEVEMENTS?
Live - 3rd place in the F1 where I was bubble to WSOP Vegas (still won good money and prizes)
        3 times winner in the local casino (huddersfield) with small fields
        1 time 2nd in Leeds Casino
Online- 2 or 3 times top 10 in the Portuguese Poker League
       - several wins in small buy ins, never got a 4 digits win but I have like 20-30 3 digits winnings

10 - WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE ABOUT LIVE POKER CURRENTLY, THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?
What I dislike about poker is the monopoly and promiscuity between poker rooms and poker players, sponsors, etc... wich makes harder for new good players...

11 - HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT APAT?
I heard from a friend Bruno Rillho the Captain of the Portuguese Team and personal friend.

12 -WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT APAT TOURNAMENTS, STANDARD OF PLAY AND STRUCTURE?

I love them! I like the freezeouts and slow blinds structure...

13 - HAVE YOU PLAYED AT AN APAT LIVE EVENT AND IF SO, WHAT WAS MOST MEMORABLE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE?

I played in DTD last year and was memorable for several reasons. I loved to see my Portuguese Team and my friends, to know in person some players I play online and the memorable leaving 62K chips and couldnt play day 2 main event... I had to come home  Shocked

14 - WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF POKER?
Lol... the answer is Poker is one of the main interests I have outside my life... Outside my life I love to play poker, go out with friends, movies, games...

15 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK OR FILM?
My favorite book is "Papillon" and Movie is "Ghandi" not because they are the best book or movie but how they touched my life and the way I think.

16 - WHAT THREE MUSIC ALBUMS WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND WITH YOU?
One of Pink Floyd, one of Queen and a collection of the 80s

17 - FINALLY, WHAT MESSAGE WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW APAT MEMBERS?

I want to say to my fellow APAT members that I"m really happy to find a place where I can play poker, make some friends and have a great time! Thanks!

Welcome Pedro, already enjoyed some good banter and railing...

Yorkshire & Humberside should now be a stronger team and probably the team to beat in the league Wink
