Sylvain Loosli is a 26-year-old cash-game player from France that now resides in London, England.

Loosli rarely plays tournament and instead focuses on online cash games up to $25/$50 on poker sites such as Winamax and

In fact Loosli only has one official live tournament cash according to Hendon Mob. He finished 24th at EPT Deauville in 2011 for $3,198.

His second live cash is going to be considerably bigger as he’s already locked up $733,224 for making the 2013 November Nine.

Loosli's been playing poker since 2006 -- he discovered it in business school -- but only been a pro for the last 2.5 years.

He's a native of Toulon but lived in London for the past 2 years. His roommates in London are Guillaume de la Gorce (former Winamax pro player) and PokerStars pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.

Loosli’s cash game style was particularly effective in the Main Event as he spent much of Day 7 with the chip lead.

He is the first French player to make the Main Event final table since Antoine Saout in 2009. Saout played well at the final table before eventually falling in third place. Loosli will try to improve on that finish and become the first French world champion.

Loosli will take 19,600,000 to the Main Event final table, which puts him in sixth place.
