Tonight, Thomas Bihl becomes the first person to win a WSOP bracelet outside of Las Vegas and has etched himself a permanent place in poker history. Fittingly enough, Bihl is a Betfair.com-sponsored player, Betfair being the official sponsor of this inaugural WSOP-Europe.

Bihl was just presented his bracelet by WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack, and thanked both Betfair and his parents, who could not be here tonight, for all their support.

"It's every poker players' dream to win a bracelet," a humble Bihl said in a post-victory interview. "I hope the good run continues."
