Now retired from the live tournament scene, the Frenchman Tristan Clemencon had a short but relatively fruitful career in the world of tournament poker. He began achieving success online as 'superroger47' in 2008 after being introduced to the game by his brother in 2006. After building his bankroll by playing MTTs and SNGs, Clemencon dipped his toes into the live tournament scene.
He hit the ground running by taking down the second live tournament that he ever cashed in for $46,707, winning a 2008 €1,000 No Limit Hold'em event in Paris. Some of his biggest successes continued to come on home soil, as he made an incredibly deep run in the EPT €5,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event in Deauville the following year. Finishing just short of the seven-figure top prize, Tristan had to settle for $377,654 in change as he busted in third-place.
Clemencon also has 7 WSOP cashes to his name, with the largest of these coming in the 2012 $10,000 Main Event. Although he wasn't able to fulfil the dream of every poker pro to go on and win it, he did receive $156,293 for his efforts after finishing in 46th.
Tristan stopped playing poker full-time at the end of 2012. He has since set up his own food truck – La Brigade – which serves gourmet Parisian street food and is doing extremely well.
