Steve Brecher Bio


One of the nicest tournament players in the game today, Steve Brecher has earned the respect of his peers across the country by cashing in numerous World Poker Tour tournaments. He scored a high tournament finish at the 2005 United States Poker Championship, where he finished third and collected a cool $218,250.

Having first tried poker in 1966 in Palo Alto, California, Brecher developed his poker repertoire and developed a deep passion for the game. After trying his hand at a number of games, Brecher decided that the 2003 no-limit hold'em poker boom was proof that hold'em was here to stay and has adjusted his game accordingly. That panned out in 2009 when he took down the Bay 101 Shooting Star event for more than $1 million and his first WPT title.

Always a thrill-seeker, Brecher moves through life the way he moves through tournament competition and is often challenging himself to constantly improve upon his game.
