Australian pro Adrian Attenborough had over $1.4 million in earnings prior to his 2022 run in the WSOP Main Event, and he is poised to add to that number in a big way this week. Attenborough’s previous best run at the WSOP was in 2017, when he finished 53rd in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event.
He ultimately finished in second place for $6,000,000.
He is also a Natural8 Ambassador, having rejoined Natural8 following his deep WSOP Main Event run.
The 28-year-old poker pro now resides in Las Vegas and first learned to play poker after being introduced by family and friends when he was just 16 years old.
Prior to his Main Event run, Attenborough had eight WSOP-related cashes totaling $288,248. That included $108,908 for finishing runner-up in the 2019 WSOP International Circuit Sydney $5K Challenge.
According to Hendon Mob, Attenborough had $1,460,049 in career earnings leading up to his 2022 WSOP run. That included a career-best $361,660 for finishing third in the 2017 Bellagio Cup XIII. He also won the 2017 Macau Poker Cup 26 HK$25,000 NLH for $193,172 and took third in the 2017 Asia Poker League Million Sydney Main Event for $91,035.
