Karl Perin has baraka. To piss off his opponents as soon as he puts his chips on the green carpet. Sunday, January 21, the young man won the national final MyPokerLigue at the casino of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie. A coronation on “a pair trash”, after two days to ooze on the cards, against 88 players. “A first for me that has never won anything in my life,” Karl still wonders.
His trophy opened the tables of the Las Vegas World Series of Poker, which brings together pros and millionaires from around the world to the best Trustly Casinos. A token to 1 100 € the entry, plus an envelope of 1 100 € to pay the expenses of the stay. Before that, Karl also won the right to get his hands on a tournament in Paris, Marrakech or Dublin at 550 € starting bet, with 550 € for the hotel.
Patience and technique
Another world for this Parisian of origin, fallen in poker during a party with friends. A time when the novice earns his nickname “Karl the baraka” by chaining the “five-ball games”. From the game without strategy, “with the biggest cards that swept the bet at the end”, for pure pleasure. But it is in Vendée that the player catches the virus.
Coming to La Roche for studies, Karl gets in touch with the association Pok’R yonnais. “I learned a lot from them at the level of patience and technique. Ideal for polishing his style. “He plays thoughtfully and knows how to be aggressive when it is necessary”, decrypts Ghislain Gouraud, the boss of Potes & Boc who organizes poker nights every Tuesday.
Karl prefers to see himself as a “perfectionist”, coupled with a lucky one. Without forgetting the touch of instinct, specific to any champion. The one that makes the right decision at the right time. Like the evening of the finale where “I was a bit as possessed and the bluff came to me naturally. ”
The kind of state that gamblers Casino Saint-Gilles dread when they see the thirties land “casual” (casual English). “I’m not the kind of dark glasses, with the headphones on my ears”. A style that he intends to put to the test on the poker table.
