Inside the Mind of a Pro: Romain Lewis swimming with sharks

By in

Brimming with confidence, the Bordeaux native continues to make his mark on the WSOP $50,000 High Roller. But beware: at a very tough table, danger lurks everywhere...

Inside the Mind of a Pro Romain Lewis #11

It was undoubtedly with one of, if not THE most beautiful call in the history of Inside the Mind of a Pro, that Romain Lewis graced us with at the conclusion of the previous episode. It was a perfect read, poised and considered, with plenty of reflection, all the more impressive as the decision involved the majority of his chips, in the most expensive tournament ever played by our pro, and under the eye of the cameras. It's a fact that the man from Bordeaux rose to the occasion, remaining confident despite the unprecedented scale of the stakes. He now has a brand new stack of around 50 blinds, ready to attack the final third of Day 1 of this $50,000 High Roller full of ambition.

Except that, when you say high stakes tournament, you say exceptional cast around our red W. While Romain's stack has changed for the better, the pedigree of his table neighbours remains the same, and is even getting stronger. David Peters, Alejandro Lococo, Damian Salas and Lander Lijo (the Spaniard who tried to bluff him) are joined by 2021 World Champion Koray Aldemir and three-time Poker Players Championship winner and new Hall of Fame member Brian Rast. It's a (very) big league in which Romain has a rightful place, provided he maintains the same level of intensity and concentration. Come on, let's not take our foot off the gas!
