I havent got one slightly small idea about who these people are. But the ticket is a sweet prize for sure on the top of the 300k mountain so it probably worth the effort they did put in.
He maybe got the two hostess for the night also - at least he didnt hooverhanded the situation on the photo, so job well done!
Thats all folks 'california dreamin'!

Wow nice hostess that what my eyes first got two, they are hot, anyway congratulations to Matthew Lapossie for the win, his name sounds both french and english, his first name english and lapossie is french I think. Anyway cheers nice event, can't wait for other events to start and watch poker played on tv!

Congratulations to Matthew Lapossie for winning this Tournament. He is not a player i have heard of but he must have played really well to lead from day 1 and to take down the first prize

Unsurprisingly the girls on either side found his sexiness increased significantly upon him winning the main prize of 300k plus.

unusual for a chip leader to do the biz as well. nice to see I guess. the WPT events seem to always have sweet prizes.
