Christophe De Meulder is a poker pro from Antwerp in Belgium, and is the twin brother of fellow Team PokerStars Pro Matthias De Meulder. He became famous on national TV back home as a child, when he hosted his own show with his brother, where they were sent out to interview celebrities.
It was his brother who introduced him to the game of poker, and he's been a regular at PokerStars ever since. He focuses mainly on cash games, and has found big success. He's also made an impact on the tournament circuit, both live and online. Highlights so far include cash finishes at European Poker Tour (EPT) Main Events, and final table appearances in several side events. His first title win came at an event in Utrecht in 2012 for $39,506, followed a few months later by a final table finish at the PokerStars Hold’em Challenge Spring Edition in Namur. Online meanwhile, Christophe scored a 5th place finish in a $256 No Limit Hold’em event at the 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), good for $28,629.
Christophe is proud to be a member of the team and loves playing at the biggest events and taking a shot at winning his first major title. He also wants to use his celebrity status to help raise the profile of poker in Belgium, and encourage more players to start playing live and online.
Away from poker, Christophe likes keeping fit, which he believes helps his game. He plays a wide range of sports including basketball, tennis, squash and football. He also likes travelling the world to find exciting places and meet new people, as well as catching up with friends. He also participated in a reality TV show in 2012 with his brother and Team SportStar Fatima Moreira De Melo.
He is a member of Team PokerStars Pro and plays online using the screen name ‘chrisdm’.
