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.
