Hugo Pingray

In 2014, then-22-year-old Hugo Pingray won one of the largest tournaments ever held: the 7,862- entry Monster Stack at World Series of Poker. That victory was worth $1,327,083. Eight years later, Pingray's Hendon Mob profile is a mere $180,000 richer.

But make no mistake, Pingray used the life-changing cash very well. Now an entrepreneur and fund manager, Pingray doesn't have to focus on poker as much. He moved to Dubai, where he handles his investments.

The Frenchman still likes the game, but it's not his priority anymore. Pingray became a father nine months ago, so his options to play are now even more limited. Still, he found time to arrive at EPT Monte Carlo and proved that he's still capable of making deep runs.
