Inside the Mind of a Pro: in the High Roller jungle

By in

For the first time in its history, your favourite poker series is covering a $50,000 buy-in tournament! Welcome to the heart of the WSOP elite.

Inside the Mind of a Pro #10 Romain Lewis
A $10,000 tournament at the World Series of Poker has become the routine, just another day at the office. The 'Championships', as they are called, come in every conceivable variation of poker. With each new season, Inside the Mind of a Pro even immerses you in one of the most challenging of them all, the $10K 6-max, where Davidi Kitai came second in 2016 after a series of legendary episodes.

However, despite these frequent forays into the world's most expensive and prestigious events, this week your favourite series is preparing to cross a new threshold: for the very first time, you'll be experiencing a $50,000 tournament from the inside! For this baptism of fire, the protagonist chosen is also new to these stratospheric heights: Romain Lewis.

This Bordeaux native, who hasn't even reached the age of 30, is already a virtual veteran of the French-speaking scene, with almost ten years' experience on the circuit. Since his debut in Gujan, the current youngest member of the Team has taken it one step at a time, making it as far as third place in the aforementioned "10K 6-max" in 2018 and 60th position in the Main Event the following year. Repeated performances that took him into another dimension, those of the High Rollers, through which he had warmed up in the first half of 2023, from the Bahamas to Monte Carlo. It was in front of the cameras that Romain took this great leap forward, on one of those tournaments capable of changing a career... or even a life. It's time to make the most of these rare and precious moments.
