When you’re feeling down in the dumps, sometimes all you want to do is hide away, curl up on the sofa, and watch a good movie. Or, y’know, you could go and win a €25,000 buy-in High Roller tournament. That will help, too.
Corentin Ropert: Welcome to the High Rollers
France’s Corentin Ropert usually plays live events up to a maximum €2,000 buy-in, with the occasional EPT Main thrown in now and then. He’d had a lousy time at the poker tables so far on his Prague trip, and didn’t feel motivated to play.
But then he read about how Belgium’s Thomas Boivin, winner of Thursday’s €25K Single Day High Roller for €375,520, had satellited in and taken down only the second €25K he’d ever played.
Ropert thought to himself, maybe I could do that too?
He could. And he did. And now he has €277,560 to show for it.
