Tony G returns to poker

Tony G

The famous poker player of the late 2000s Antanas Guoga said that he is going to return to big poker. Guoga is better known by his poker nickname Tony G.

By the end of 2000s, Tony G was a regular guest of all poker TV shows. He became famous for his eccentric ability to put the opponents out of temper and provoke the conflicts even in the most unobtrusive conversation. Professional poker player Phil Hellmuth became one of the frequent victims of such provocations.

Soon, poker TV shows lost their popularity, and Guoga almost stopped playing poker. In 2014, he ran for a seat in the European Parliament. Antanas won the election and became the EP deputy from Lithuania for the next 5 years. This year, his party didn’t overcome the electoral threshold and Tony decided to return to professional poker.

He wrote the post in Twitter about his returning to poker:

This summer, Tony G has already won in PartyPoker LIVE MILLIONS high roller tournament with €25 000 buy-in and now he is preparing for play in Rozvadov at WSOPE, which starts on 13 October.
