Once again the buy-in was adjusted for the EPT London, this time jumping to £5,200, and as a result attendance dropped slightly to 392 runners, which created a prize pool of £2,038,400. German player Florian Langmann began that year’s final table as the chip leader, and eventually made it to heads-up play against online qualifier Joseph Mouawad.

The two battled for less than an hour, and in the final hand Langmann raised preflop and Mouawad called, which brought about a flop of {6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}. Langmann bet and then called off after Mouawad shoved. Langmann tabled the {9-Spades}{8-Spades} for middle pair, but it was no good as Mouawad tabled the {q-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for top pair. The {Q-Spades} turn left Langmann drawing dead, and after the {8-Clubs} was run out on the river, Mouawad captured victory and the £611,520 first-place prize. In addition, the 47-year-old became the first player from Lebanon to win an EPT title.

It was a storybook ending for Mouawad, but his fairy tale ended there. In the six years since his big win, Mouawad has just two tournament cashes to name – second in the 2010 Five Star World Poker Classic $1,000 No Limit Hold’em for $25,500 and eight in the €2,000 No Limit Hold’em event at this year’s EPT Barcelona for €16,650.
