It came to be the French businessman Christophe Benzimra, 47, who took home EPT Warsaw's first prize of $358,644 and a seat to the Season 6 EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo. Christophe Benzimra started playing poker only 3 years ago, but still he has taken part at almost every EPT event in the last two sesasons. However, this is his first big cash in EPT.
"I think I was lucky today. I am not a professional, I play for fun. I'm not giving up work! I play poker just for the pleasure of it."; Christophe Benzimra said after the win.
