Andres Campero Could Turn Freeroll Into World Championship Walk Off
About a year ago, Andres Campero decided he wanted to take poker more seriously. A recreational player from Mexico City, Campero had recently sold his start-up company and was looking for something to do that would occupy the bandwidth that he had previously poured into his company.
He reached out to Angel Guillen and told him he wanted to learn. Guillen and Campero had first met almost 10 years ago at a Latin American Poker Tour event. Guillen went on to become one of Mexico’s greatest poker players and a WPT Global ambassador while Campero only dabbled in poker while pursuing his education.
Now Campero is one of the bigger stacks with less than 50 players left in the WPT World Championship. He is arguably also the smartest person in the room. He has a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology – MIT – in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
And he won his way to Las Vegas via a freeroll on WPT Global.
“I have battled with some of them online, so I fortunately have a bit of experience like that, but it’s very cool,” Campero said. “Yesterday, for example, with ‘LuckyChewy’ (Andrew Lichtenberger) and Davidi Kitai, even on Day 1, I had very good players. So it’s been good.”
