On Wednesday, France finally got its first World Series of Poker Europe bracelet winner and, even better, it occured on home soil. Roger Hairabedian outlasted a field of 96 players in Event #3: €5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha in Cannes, France. Besides the title and becoming a part of history, he received a cheque of €142,590! 

His name might not be a familiar to many, but he has been around the poker scene for many years and cashed in several major tournaments. His biggest cash was back in 2008 when he won Grand Prix de Paris for €419,520. In 2010 he finished 7th in the EPT Grand Final Main Event for €200k, and about a year ago he placed 5th in Partouche Poker Tour Main Event for €230k. In total, his lifetime live tournament winnings are $3.5 million.

Poker champions are everywhere, where the will to win lives, so not just americans can win, and with the power of the Internet, not just Las Vegas and Macau have the best of this beautiful world which is poker. One day it will be Portugal, i know I will keep giving my face for that cause.

He's a good player... he maid a lot of money from poker... i dream someday i can afford a buy-in to a WSOP EPT WPT tournament but this is just a dream... until i afford a buy-in on this awesome tournament i'll play on net and generate a lot of rake for smart people who know how to make money without play even one hand... i think i'm in matrix =))

Lately many good players from France hit the big live poker scene and i think this was indeed a natural step to happen Smile

It's also nice to see that the wsope bracelet was won on this fast growing popular game, PLO rather than the popular no limit holdem.
