Biography –

Andoni Larrabe hails from Basque in Spain and has spent years grinding the online multiple table tournament scene since he was 18 under the alias “pollopopeye.” While players outside Spain might not recognize Larrabe’s name, he is well known in Spain and has amassed over $341,000 in live tournament earnings. Larrabe gained some fame and fortune back in January 2013 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure at the Atlantis Resort and Casino by winning the event.

Larrabe also has three WSOP cashes to his name in 2013 and this young pro has already snagged a little piece of poker history as no Spanish player has ever made the November Nine WSOP 2014 in its current format. He is in a good position to become the first Spanish player since Carlos Mortensen to win the WSOP 2014 Main Event. He starts ‘November Nine’ 4th in Chip lead and is in good position.
