A Greek native turned German restaurant owner and lifetime poker hobbyist overcame great odds at an aggressive final table to win his first World Series of Poker bracelet at WSOP Europe in Berlin, Germany, Saturday.

Makarios Avramidis took down the WSOP Europe's Event #1: €2,200 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em to win €105,000 and a gold bracelet, getting the best of a final table that included German standout Marvin Rettenmaier, 2015 WSOP bracelet winner Paul Michaelis, and 10-time WSOP final table participant Stephen Chidwick.

"I don't even understand yet what has happened," Avramidis told PokerNews through an interpreter. "I have played European Poker Tour tournaments for a few years and never even reached the money. This is just a really fantastic feeling. It is probably going to take a bit of time to realize what has actually happened here."

From the buy in, it looks he must be doing good in Germany Smile
It could have been a satellite also. But i bet he is one of these players you will not hear
again winning anything big.

For a WSOP event i was waiting for a bigger prize for first place.

Always good to see a recreational player manage to take down such a massive tournament and to win a WSOP and a gold bracelet must be a great feeling,he definitely beat some of the best players in the world to do it.

Can you really say he is a recreational player with that buy in?
I guess you can, when you have loads of money and that buy in means nothing to you.

But if you think every single cent of it, to play or not the tournament, it is more like an
investment.

MB he sold shares of of his winnings, who knows, they only know, doubt any1 will be honest if that buyin was really peanuts or he "sold a limb" to get it, so don't spend to much time on it, glad he took it down, so now he wont have to sell any more body parts to afford to buyin in similar events Big Smile
