Fabric Touil is a true competitor in the world of professional poker playing. He has competed in over 20 tournaments and has advanced to the final table 8 times and won first place twice. One of Touils impressive tournaments was back in 2014 when he competed against 541 players in the WSOP $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max Event.
The WSOP is comprised of 64 tournaments and is held over four-days at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Paradise Nevada. With a buy-in of $5,000 and the prize pool exceeding $2,542,600, Fabrice Touil came to play, dominating his opponents one after another quickly rising to compete for the coveted final table seat.
It was day 3 of the tournament, and Fabrice Touil was competing to move on to 10th place. He was competing against Byron Kaverman, an American player, who later that year, had won the $10,000 six-max No Limit Hold’em Championship. Even though Byron was an excellent player, he was no match for Fabrice’s set of 6’s. The river card wasn’t in Byron’s favor, and he was eliminated moving Touil into 10th place with a 240,000 chip count.
Touil made his way to 8th place before meeting his match, Kevin Eyster. Touil was eliminated taking home $55,710.
Professional poker is what Touil was born to do. Touil has said, “It is challenging at times, but nothing compares to the adrenaline you feel when you are sitting at the big table. It makes it all worth the trouble.” This mentality is what drives him to compete in tournament after tournament. It’s his skill and determination that makes Fabrice Touil a front-runner and a force to be reckoned with.
