Chad Brown

Chad Brown

Born and raised in New York City, Chad Brown headed to Hollywood in the early 90s to pursue an acting career. He managed to find work in film and television, but struggled to find his big break. Luckily for Chad, he was able to supplement his income playing poker at casinos across California. Having honed his skills in the Italian cafes of the Bronx back home, Chad soon discovered he could make more money at the tables than he could under Hollywood's lights.

By 1993, Chad was making a steady income at tournaments across America and made his first WSOP* cash. He just missed out on reaching the final table of the $1,500 Limit Hold’em event. He finally found the World Series breakthrough he was looking for in 2002. He finished 3rd in the $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo event, earning $45,400. Two years later, he earned $62,320 for finishing as runner-up in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event. Just a few months later, he finished third at a World Series Circuit event and made another final table appearance for a combined total of $288,322. In 2006, Chad also scored big on the WPT, earning over $450,000 for cash finishes in several events, including a 9th place at the $25,000 Championship. In the same year, he also won $110,345 for coming 5th at the London leg of the PokerStars European Poker Tour Season 3. In 2007, Chad again finished runner up in a World Series tournament, taking home $342,777 in the $5,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball event. He also finished as runner up at the NBC National Heads Up Championship, earning a further $250,000. Chad has also been successful online. In 2006, he won the $5,200 H.O.R.S.E. event in the PokerStars World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP). The victory was worth $223,150 and validated Chad's online poker skills.

When he isn’t playing, Chad can often be found hosting the Ultimate Poker Challenge TV show. Away from poker, his other passion is baseball and he plays on a regular basis, with friends and ex-pros from the professional leagues.

With over $3,000,000 in tournament winnings to his name already, Chad Brown is clearly one of the most successful players of the last decade. He currently lives in Vancouver, Canada, and you can find him playing online with the screen name ‘ChadBrownPRO’.
