With a WPT Prime Paris title and two deep EPT Main Event runs, Fabrice Bigot has announced his presence to the poker world, less than two years after his first career live cash. But his journey stretches back, through law school, competitive Starcraft 2 and beyond.

Action Clock Rules
The Action Clock will be implemented into play at the start of day 2. The Action Clock will be controlled by the dealer. Dealers will start the Action Clock following the completion of each deal once the last card has been dealt. When players act in turn, the Action Clock will be reset, with each player receiving a fresh 30 seconds to begin his or her action. When a bet or raise has been made, the dealer will first count the bet or raise size, announce the amount, and then start the clock for the next action. If a player calls the bet, the dealer will reset the clock to begin the next player’s action.
Dealers will advise players when the Action Clock reaches 10 seconds. The Action Clock will never be paused unless there is an extreme situation that calls for play to be halted.
To begin play in the Action Clock portion of the tournament, each player will receive time extension chips. Each time-extension chip is worth a 30-second addition to a player’s action. Players should keep all remaining time-extension chips with them throughout the duration of the tournament once the Action Clock has been implemented into play. Time-extension chips are to be treated with the same level of importance as tournament chips. In the case that the field reaches the conclusion of a day’s play during the Action Clock portion of the tournament but before the final three (3) tables are reached, all remaining players will place any unused time-extension chips in their chip bag to return with the following day.
Upon reaching twenty-four (24) players, each remaining player will reset to a maximum of four (4) 30- second time-extension chips. Upon reaching the official WPT final table (9 players) of the tournament, each remaining player will reset to a maximum of six (6) 30-second time extension chips.
Players are required to keep remaining time-extension chips visible at all times. If a player wishes to use a time-extension chip, the player is to pass the time-extension chip forward to the dealer in exchange for an additional 30 seconds to be added to their Action Clock. In the case that the Action Clock expires for a player with remaining time-extension chips, the player’s Action Clock will be automatically extended an additional 30 seconds before the dealer collects the time extension chip(s) used. Collection will take place at the end of the player’s action. If a player’s Action Clock expires and the player does not have any time-extension chips remaining, he or she will be (a) forced to check if there is no bet pending or (b) fold if facing a bet or a raise.
