Victor Lemos Pokermet Team Pro
It is evident that the poker industry is not only prospering to its full potent, but is also crossing borders as it becomes a more mainstream sport. So, with this exciting association we reached out to our Panama-based poker pro to give us a few insights on his poker life and the poker scene in Panama, here are a few excerpts from his interview. You can read the full interview at PokerGuru…
When asked how he got into poker from his real estate career, Victor said – “I have played poker since forever now. I think my earliest poker memory is playing with my grandma at age 5 or 6. My family also used to play Telefunken a rummy-style game on the weekends occasionally, which later transformed into poker for me and my cousins. However, serious poker only started after I came home from college and played online for the first time and loved it, turns out I was pretty good too.”
Victor also told us humbly, that despite being a serious poker player he still finds time to pursue other interests in life and suggests his life has hardly changed, “my life hasn’t changed much; I love poker but I still manage to have time for different business ventures, along with quality time for family and friends.”
With such a rich background in poker and great wins and titles to his name, Victor Lemos is an asset for PokerMet team pro. He is a serious global poker figure with great stats to his name and amazing poker skills.
Regarding the new addition to our pro team, PokerMet MD Aditya Das said, “Victor is a serious international poker figure with great poker stats to his name and amazing gameplay skills. While he may be a new face amongst the Indian poker community, but he is not unknown to ardent poker enthusiasts and there is a lot to learn from his poker skills! May many more victories come to Victor!”
We wish Victor continues with his winning streak at poker and hope that, aspiring players who wish to play high stakes poker tournaments in India would have the chance to learn important lessons in poker by watching him play.
