Tamas Lendvai is a Hungarian, 38-year-old businessman moonlighting as a professional poker player who has been playing cards for about five years. Lendvai’s tournament résumé is impressive by any standards. He’s won just under $500,000 USD in prize money traveling the circuit and has posted cashes on the EPT, APPT, NAPT, WSOP and most recently on the Italian Poker Tour (IPT), where he won the €2,000 buy-in IPT Venice Main Event, scoring a €235,000 payday. Lendvai also cashed in the 2009 APPT Auckland Main Event, finishing in 31st place – good for an NZD $5,523 score, and backed that up with a final table appearance the following year, placing fifth for NZD $40,900.
