Bernard ANDREOLETTI was born in France on the 14th July 1953 at La Mure, a village below the Alpes. Being the son and grandson of « mineur » who emigrated from italy in the 1920s, Bernard is a self educated french painter.
Far from studious, Bernard quit college at the age of 14 to dedicate himself to the game of ‘poker’, which he discovered in the backyard of a pub in his hometown.
He became fascinated and passionate about the game and spent his following years living from and for poker. In 1977, aged 24 years, Bernard met his future wife, Anne Hertig and they had two daughters together.
Devoting himself to his wife and family made Bernard forget about the game that previously was his passion.
