Phil “takechip” D’Auteuil

In the world of high stakes poker, Phil “takechip” D’Auteuil made waves over the weekend with a big online win.

From High Stakes DB:

The $200/$400 NLHE ring games have been brewing for some time but as of yesterday there were no truly big scores to come out of them. That all changed in the early hours of this morning when Phil “takechip”" D'Auteuil went on a rush and took $410k one tabling $200/$400 NLHE.

French Canadian Pro Phillipe D'Auteuil is a regular at the PokerStars high stakes PLO tables.  He placed 5th in the 2008 EPT main event in London, UK for $358,000.
