Jean-Philippe Piquette has been well known on the Montreal Poker scene for over a decade. JP has made his presence known in tournaments all over the world, including in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Atlantic City, Niagara Falls and in Montreal at his home base, Playground Poker Club.
He cashed in the Main Event of the World Series of Poker in 2005 and again in 2010. His biggest cashes to date scored him a $50,000 first place finish in the 2012 Playground Poker Classic $2000 Main Event and another $50,000 first place finish in the 2012 Playground Poker Classic $10,000 High Roller Event earning him not one, but two Championship Belts.

You can find -jpp at almost all of Playground Poker Club's major tournaments and enjoying a “Rail Burger” from The Rail, Coal Fire Bistro.
