Paul Guichard




Guichard, who won his seat to EPT Deauville, is an up-and-coming player who is already getting good results on He started playing poker with friends when he was 13. Once he could go online, he only made two deposits before building a healthy bankroll. He also started playing live and once he graduated from high school, he decided to dedicate himself to poker and tennis. He says if he had to stop playing poker, that he’d resume his career as a tennis player. His online winnings already total $140,000 including €13,000 for fourth place in the €500 “All Star Game".
Live, his best result was winning a side event in Cannes last September for €15,000. Guichard says he owes much to Clement Thumy, his coach for the last two years already. This was Guichard’s first EPT but he says if he finishes in top four tomorrow, he’ll join the live poker tournament circuit.
