When the final table of the WSOP Europe Cannes Main Event was about to start yesterday Elio Fox, from New York, was in a big lead with about 3,9 million chips, and in second place was no one else than Jake Cody, from UK, with 2,6 million. The other 6 players, most of them with over $2m in tournament winnings, also had plenty of chips to gamble with, so it was very hard to foresee a winner.
It became an extremely though final table as many had expected and it took about 9 hours before the tournament found its winner, Elio Fox. Elio Fox, 25, played fantastic poker from start to finish and never seemed threatened by his opponents. For the win he received amazing $1,9 million and became a part of history as he had won the biggest Main Event in WSOP Europe history.
