Inside the Mind of a Pro: livin' on the edge

By in

134 players remain in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event of the 2021 WSOP. Among these players is Romain Lewis, sitting in 39th position with a 31-BB stack. Shuffle up and deal!

Inside the Mind of a Pro - WSOP 2021 - Romain - 3A subtle mix between skill and luck, a jovial mood that is as irresistible as infectious, a couple of Brazilian stars properly taken to the cleaners (we're talking about you, Andre Akkari and Felipe Ramos), and a willingness to play at his best at all times: it would be an understatement to say that Romain Lewis wanted to put on a good show for his big comeback to your favorite poker show. Thus, it is with even more trepidation that we await to see what he has in store for us in this new episode, still centered on Event #41 of the 2021 World Series of Poker, the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em tournament.

At the end of the previous episode, the bubble was merely a formality for our hero, who climbed to 39th place in the rankings among the 134 players who reached the money. 31 blinds: a nice, solid stack, big enough to allow Romain to dream about yet another deep run in Las Vegas. But 31 blinds is also a dangerous stack, not big enough to take on the role of the aggressor, but also not small enough to limit his strategy to preflop decisions. In short, Romain will have to do some work in this new episode,  by taking some risks, and navigating a very thin line, whilst simultaneously protecting his chips, and all the while trying to add to them, praying that the cards will cooperate when the time comes for his chips to go in the middle. Not the easiest of tasks, but for us spectators, those are the tricky situations that make for the best episodes of Inside the Mind of a Pro. Are you ready for another doozy?
