Adrian Viñuela

CHASE YOUR DREAM WINNER

Adrian Viñuela is in the final year of his studies to become a chemical engineer. But the 23-year-old from Salamanca, Spain, has a couple of hobbies that he would love to turn into a profession, too. On the weekends, Adrian performs in small clubs as a DJ. He dreams of one day producing his own electronic music.

His other hobby, of course, is poker. Adrian has played with friends for most of the last decade, but in the last year he began approaching the game in the same methodical manner as his studies. He puts in two or three hours a day online, where he finds the opponents to be more skilled and therefore a better test of his abilities.

Adrian watches a lot of poker online and was inspired by Ramon Colillas’s victory at the PSPC. He entered the Chase Your Dream contest in the hopes of playing against Ramon, whom he credits with boosting the game’s popularity in Spain. Now that Adrian is the owner of a PSPC2 Platinum Pass, he’ll have the chance to follow in his countryman’s footsteps.
