Seat 2: Bernard Guigon, 64, France & Dakar, Senegal – 4,900,000

Bernard Guigon

Single with three children, Guigon is a pharmacist in Dakar and discovered draw poker in the 80s where he was playing big cash games in Dakar. He switched over to Texas Hold'em three years ago and is no stranger to big buy-in events. He says poker is more than a hobby; it’s a real passion especially as he says he is highly competitive. His best performance to date was fourth in a €1,000 WSOP Europe in Cannes last year for €50,000.
