Roger Hairabedian Wins Event 5: €2,200 No Limit Hold’em (€148,820)
He was just unstoppable today! The man who goes by ‘Big Roger’ managed to beat an extremely tough final table to become the first player in history to win two World Series of Poker Europe bracelets, and also the first ever French player with two. Roger Hairabedian ultimately beat Erik Seidel heads up and walked away with €148,820.
Plenty of big pros made it to the final table, but Max Greenwood and Mike Watson were knocked out right at start. Matan Krakow made a WSOPE final table for the third straight year, but he as well was no match for Hairabedian. Krakow finished fourth today for €49,784 and the 888 sponsored player once again showed that he can compete with the best in the world.
One of the best in the world is without question Erik Seidel. Seidel has eight WSOP bracelets, more than $18 million in career earnings and a huge collection of trophies. Seidel started the day, and later the heads up, as chip leader but he did not manage to close it out. Seidel took home €92,003 for his second place finish but Hairabedian was the big winner making €148,820 after playing poker for three days here in Paris.
