His poker nickname is “Kwick Fish” and in 2006 he came in number 7 for the Player of the Year in Bluff Magazine.
A Bit About Paul’s Pre-Poker Background
Paul Wasicka was born in Dallas, Texas in 1981. Before he started playing poker, he had a job as a bartender and restaurant manager. Today he lives in Westminster, Colorado and is single. Despite being single, family and friends are crucial to him and he loves them tremendously. He was once quoted to have said “I have the best friends and family anyone could ask for.” While he loves poker right now, he doesn’t expect it will be his addiction forever since he says he’s passionate about whatever he does and it just happens to be poker at the moment. He got in to poker after he found himself at an underground poker tournament in Denver Colorado. That was the beginning for him and he hasn’t looked back since.
What Wasicka Does When He’s Not Playing Poker
Paul Wasicka – while he is indeed a mega poker player with an awesome poker profile – does have a life beside the hobby that has to date, netted him millions. In his spare time he enjoys bowling, skiing, watching movies and listening to music. His favorite film is Boondock Saints and he enjoys a wide variety of music from classical to electronica. He loves going to the mountains and couldn’t care less about celebrities! He’s got a good heart and wishes people were nicer to each other; would stop being so arrogant and pretentious and live life being down to earth. And, while they’re doing that, that is the way they should be playing poker too. A life lesson, is a poker lesson. Well, it sure has worked for Paul Wasicka.
