Ronnie Bardah's Biography

Ronnie Bardah grew up in Brockton, Ma and started playing poker when he was 12. At the time, baseball cards was the method of currency in the game. Ronnie ambition to become self-sufficient became evident through his teen years when he took on a series of jobs to make money. Eventually, he turned to poker to make his money.

Ronnie admitted once that while many players learned how to play the game online, he learned by playing home games with his friends in Brockton. By the time he was 17, he was regularly playing in live casino games thanks to a fake id.

Ronnie is just as comfortable playing cash games or tournaments and regularly frequented the middle and high stake limit Hold’em games at the Borgata. However, it was live events where he would become a household name.

Ronnie’s first live win was in 2007 when he took down a $500 event at the Empire State Hold’em Championships in Verona, NY. The small tournament win would be the first in a number of solid finishes and soon he would become a household name in the game.

In 2010, Ronnie gained worldwide fame after finishing 24th in the 2010 WSOP Main Event. His finish earned him $317,161 and informed the poker world that he had arrived. Two months later, he finished 17th at the WPT World Poker Finals.

His 2010 WSOP Main Event finish would begin the first of four straight money finishes in the WSOP Main Event. Ronnie’s biggest moment at the World Series of Poker came in 2012 when he won his first bracelet in the $2,500 Limit Hold’em Six-Handed event. He survived a stacked field of 302 players to take the event and $182,088 in prize money.

Ronnie continued his WSOP dominance in 2013, finishing in the money three times. He made his second career WSOP final table where he finished third in the $5,000 Limit Hold’em event. Ronnie also finished 124th in the Main Event.

With an impressive Main Event record and one WSOP bracelet under his belt, Ronnie looks to take his game to the next level and continue taking down major poker titles. He still looks to break through and one day take down the WSOP Main Event.
