Anthony Zinno earned a degree in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and then graduated from Suffolk University Law School. With over $150,000 in student debt, he chose poker instead of practicing law despite having already passed the Bar.
It turned out to be the right play. Zinno, 38, is one of the most consistent tournament players in the world. He’s been a rousing success on the World Poker Tour, having won three Main Tour events. Zinno also has 2 WSOP Bracelets to his name.
