From his first recorded tournament in 2007 to early 2015, Guy Taylor played exclusively in his native England. This is where he honed his game and would have his most success in later years. Taylor would then venture to the European Poker Tour in Malta and Prague where he initially had only moderate success. His first significant cash of $ 28,132 came in August 2015 at the Sky Poker 6-Max UK Poker Championships, Nottingham placing second at the High Roller Event. His hometown would bring more luck as Taylor would pick up a win at the Dusk Till Dawn 200 in March 2017 racking up another 20K plus prize money. In 2018, he would claim his biggest career live cash of $ 69,029 finishing third at the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour London. Taylor would find more success at this tournament in 2019, 2020 and 2022, clinching a major win at the Mystery Bounty Event of a special GUKPT Goliath 10th Anniversary edition with a payoff of $46,346.

The 2023 and 2024 seasons have seen Guy Taylor shift his grind to Asia, participating in the U Series of Poker Vietnam and Asian Poker Tour, picking up a win in March 2024 at the USOP Da Nang 8-Handed Hyper Turbo Event and a runner up finish at the 2024 APT Taipei Hyper Turbo High roller Event.

For Guy Taylor, it’s the slow journeyman’s path that wins the poker race.
