Jerome Douieb: a cultured front-runner


Take a stroll through the PokerStars rooms at any other time of the day and you're likely to notice a distictive virtual figure behind a vast pile of virtual chips. His name is "Chemovs" and he's leading the charge here in Deauville.

From now on, let's refer to our chip leader as Jerome "Chemovs" Douieb, PokerStars qualifier from Maison Laffitte, near Paris. He qualified for the EPT here last season and since then has been a big player at the site, winning a couple of multi-table tournaments, destroying the cash tables both online and off with the rest of his time.

That's when he's not indulging his other passion for the Sport of Kings, giving him another reason to visit Deauville for the regular August horse race meeting.

Plenty are backing Jerome as a winner here. We'll discover the true extent of his obvious pedigree throughout today.
