Remi Castaignon

French player Remi Castaignon has found a great way to celebrate his 31st birthday this week – with the chance of being the EPT’s second double champion! Castaignon, who turned 31 yesterday, snagged a giant €770,000 prize when he won Deauville in Season 9. Castaignon, who hails from a tiny village in the Pyrenées, has had several cashes since his Deauville victory including a final table in a $500 event in Las Vegas last summer and he also min-cashed both the Eureka Main Event and Eureka High Roller in Prague this week. He has been playing poker since 2007.
