Ronnie Bardah has been a poker pro since before “The Boom”, and though he’s perhaps most famous for his five consecutive cashes in the WSOP Main Event, he’s a Fixed Limit Hold ‘Em player first and foremost. He shares his story growing up in and around casinos, experiencing the early days of no-limit hold ’em at Foxwoods, getting shut out of big private games in Florida, and eventually moving to Las Vegas to play Limit Hold ‘Em at Bellagio.
