Guillaume Humbert-winner of Event 1 at the 2011 WSOPE

Guillaume Humbert decided to take his live shot in the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) after accumulating his bankroll playing online. Before he entered Event #1 the €2,500 Six-Max NLHE Tournament he had never played in a major live tournament in his life! Despite his, apparent, lack of live action Humbert managed to navigate his way through 360 of the worlds greatest players to take home the €215,999 first prize, the coveted WSOP bracelet and the bragging rights that go along with achieving such as wonderful feat.

Congratulations to Guillaume Humbert but also commiserations to Azusa Maeda, the man from Japan, who finished a very respectable 2nd and played his heart out over the past three days.
