Full Player Profile

One look to size up Erik Cajelais is all it takes to assume he won’t be the timid on at the table. Taking a look at his track record is sure to eliminate any remaining doubt. The young Full Tilt “Red Pro” plays online under his own name, “Erik Cajelais” on the site, although live poker tournament play, particularly Pot Limit Omaha and No Limit Hold’em are what he does best.

With already just under $2,200,000 in career winnings since bursting onto the poker scene in 2005, Erik also owns some hefty bragging rights, with a World Series of Poker Europe bracelet for winning the Pot Limit Hold’em/Pot Limit Omaha Event #2 in 2009 and a World Poker Tour Title for winning a $5000 buy-in event in the Bellagio Five Diamond Classic in December of 2006, raking in $405, 230.

You want to check his bracelet win? Here is the last 3 minutes of Heads Up play if you do:


His largest cash however, came in the 20k “High Roller” London Open PokerStars EPT, just over a week after his WSOPE victory, for a 2nd place finish that seen him taking a pile of fat stacks adding up to $530, 945! That was the 3rd occasion so far where he has finished in money of $400,000 or more, the other being a heads up finish in a WSOP Pot Limit Omaha Event, bagging Cajelais another $483, 755 for his roll.

To date, Erik has earned over seven hundred and thirty thousand dollars over 5 WSOP & Circuit winnings, having finished deep in the money in at least one event every year since 2006. What is more impressive than having cashed 19 times in major poker events, is looking at the average of his statistics; his average prize money is around $115,000! That is larger than winning most events on Canadian soil.

Cajelais is a true Canadian poker player however, and while he clearly doesn’t mind facing any opponents the world has to offer, home is where there heart is so he joined with the poker industries best to build players the best poker club he could, right in the backyard of his birthplace of Montreal.
