The World Series of Poker Europe event (WSOPE) attracted a field of 420 players, with Phil Hellmuth claiming the top spot in the main event. The event in Cannes saw the second largest turnout in the six year history of WSOPE main events, with professional players from across the globe competing across the tables. Along with Hellmuth, top industry pros such as Joseph Cheong and Jason Mercier took a seat at the final table.

After defeating Sergii Baranov, with an Ace of Hearts and 10 of Diamond hand to his Ace of Spades - 4 of Clubs, Hellmuth was able to secure his victory, along with €1,022,376 in winnings. Along with this, the 1989 WSOP main event champion has earned his 13th WSOP gold bracelet, adding to his achievements as the all-time bracelet leader. Hellmuth is also the first poker player to ever to win both the WSOP Europe main event and the WSOP championships in Las Vegas.

2012 has proved successful for the pro so far, having won another WSOP bracelet this summer at the $2,500 WSOP razz event, earning his first WSOP title in a non Hold ‘em event. In addition to this he has also reached the final table at $1 million buy-in Big One For One Drop event earlier this year, where he finished in fourth position for over $2.6 million. His earnings for this year to date have reached $4.3 million, undoubtedly as a result of his impressive tournament performances.

During his bracelet ceremony at the World Series of Poker Europe, Hellmuth stated: “I’m humbled by this. I’m still trying to figure out if this is real or not. This was the best poker I have ever played in my life, I know that for certain. I played as good as I could possibly play and caught a few breaks, and here I am. I’m very thankful.”

The results of the WSOPE main event final table are as follows:

Position Player Prize
1 Phil Hellmuth €1,022,376
2 Sergii Baranov €632,593
3 Stephane Albertini €423,360

5 Christopher Brammer €207,648
