Thomas Wahlroos Bio

Before turning his poker hobby into a profession, Thomas Wahlroos made a living as an investment banker. In 2006, he finished fourth in the Grand Prix De Paris at the Aviation Club de France, which earned him more than $305,000. At the World Poker Tour $25,000 championship during the 2007 Five Star World Poker Classic, Wahlroos finished on the televised final table bubble. In less than two years, Wahlroos has already accumulated almost $944,000 in tournament winnings.

He calls Helinski, Finland, home but spends about half the year in Las Vegas. Away from the poker table, Wahlroos is quite the thrill seeker and enjoys skydiving, scuba diving, and snowboarding. Perhaps his hunger for excitement has led him to his job choice. Either way, he is a risk taker, and one to watch out for at the poker tables.
