Antoine Saout, 25, is from Saint Martin des Champs, France and he's one of the 2 finalists that aren't born in USA. Antoine mostly plays poker online and there he has won about $200,000. Although he has been quite successful online, he has no records of any live tournament winnings, until now. This is Antoine's first ever WSOP and he won his entry to the Main Event through a $50 satellite online.

Antoine Saout had a really tough struggle to make it this far in the tournament. No one else than the other November 9 finalist Phil Ivey was seated on his left at the poker table for the 3 last days of the tournament. Now, however, both he and Phil Ivey are going to play for some serious cash on Saturday when the final table kicks off.

Antoine brings 9,500,000 with him to the final table on Saturday. He's quite short stacked with other words. But Antoine might have some kind of advantage because of the tough fight he had the 3 last days of the tournament. And who knows? Maybe he will be really dangerous if he mange to double up at the early stages of the final table.

The players at Everest poker who qualified online for the main event must be really happy at the moment as they will get a share of $1 million dollars. All this thanks to that Antoine Saout from France who made it to the final table in the main event.

Not less than 53 players qualified online to play in the main event in WSOP through Everest Poker this year. Everest were really generous this year as they promised to add the total amount of money that their players made from the main event to a special "pot" (from their own pocket), a pot which their online qualifiers got to share between them. However, the maximum amount of this "pot" was set to $1 million dollars, luckily for Everest Poker, as one of their players has made it all the way to the final table in WSOP. All the 53 online qualifiers will now get $18,868 each, plus that they already got to play in the main event.
