Share this
Name: Eric Froehlich

Nickname: EFro

Date of birth: 2/9/84

Place of Birth: Philadelphia

Currently residing: Washington D.C.

Favorite song to listen to before tournament that gets you pumped up: That changes every time but probably something by Jay-Z, Eminem or 50 Cent. Also one time I had to borrow David Williams' IPOD cause mine broke, so now rap is even more prevalent.

Craziest prop bet: I don't do prop bets.

Favorite places to travel: I like California a lot; it is nice weather, not as hot as Vegas or ever cold. My favorite place to play tournaments is the Bellagio. They run the best tournaments and have the best structure.

What do you like to do in your spare time: I am an avid sports fan so I watch a lot of baseball, basketball and football. Also, I have an extensive DVD collection of every TV show and movie ever made. I played a lot of sports when I was younger until I got hurt then I started playing magic.

Any celebrity crushes: Kristen Bell from Veronica Mars and Rachel Bilson from the OC

If you weren't playing poker what career would you have: My major in school was going to be psychology but if I wasn't playing poker I would be in school pre-law

What is something no one knows about you: I have worn a hat and jersey at every single live poker tournament I have ever played.

Favorite movie: Good Will Hunting

Hobbies: Watching sports, playing poker, going out with friends.

Describe yourself in three words: And I quote, "hardworking, alpha male, jackhammer...merciless, insatiable."

What are you most proud of in your life: I've been able to be successful in a bunch of different things and that I have been able to win two bracelets and give back to my friends and family.

What is your favorite smell: Perfume

Favorite taste: Lobster

Favorite sound: The sound that happens when a ton of chips are being pushed towards you.

Biggest impulse purchase: I don't do impulse purchasing but I buy every single DVD I want, and I just bought a top end Lexus.

When you aren't in a tournament what are you doing day to day: I play online poker and try to spend as much time as I can with friends either locally or abroad. I spend a lot of time with my family.

What do you spend your money on: The bills, most of it definitely goes to the bills and the travel expenses from the tournaments. Also DVDs and sports memorabilia. I try to save as much as I can.

What is a day in your life like outside of playing poker: Besides online poker, I wake up pretty late and go spend time with friends. I play board games, hang out, drink, have fun and relax.

How many tournaments do you play a year: WSOP plus all the WPT's and some of the preliminary events. Basically I play every big, high profile tournament.

How do you celebrate when you make a big score, either tournaments, cash, online or live: I don't celebrate. I go out with friends and family, take them out to a nice dinner but I don't do anything special.

What are you up to now: Playing the circuit, trying to continue success. Try to sink number three. Right now my life is poker and I want to do as much as I can while I am still young and have a lot of opportunity. I also play a lot of poker on full tilt

WSOP Bracelets: 2

WSOP cashes: 9
