Wille "Isokala" Wahlbeck becomes the first Finnish poker player to win a WSOP bracelet as he defeated a 194 strong starting field and took down the mixed tournament in World Series of Poker. For the win he received almost half a million dollars!

Wille "Isokala" Wahlbeck writes history as he became the first Finnish poker player to win a WSOP Bracelet. 194 players took part in the "mixed" tournament that Wahlbeck won and he had to face players like Huck Seed, David Chiu and Todd Brunson on the final table. What makes Wahlbeck's WSOP 2009 even more amazing is that he also reached a 3rd place in Event #6 (Seven Card Stud) a few days before he took down the mixed tournament.

Congratulations to Isokala! After i read he reached 3rd at Seven Card Stud i think he deserves this bracelet even more. He is the example that a player don't have to be with the head destroyed and enter on tilt mode after drowning at the beach. Congrats to Finland too, your poker will now get more respected!

Very nice, did not expect him to break this record because we have other big names in Finland... but he did it. Congrats and hope to see more EU players to win bracelets.
