Three WPT titles is such an amazing result it will make news for sure.

It is interesting that now that the Online Poker Prohibition in the U.S. has effectively frozen out poker talent in the birthplace of poker ... all of these multiple winners are uber-strong Europeans.

Of course 15 out of the 17 poker players with two WPT titles are Americans so that might even out in the future despite the puritanical anti-poker regulations in the U.S. but let's keep in mind that the first American to win a WPT event outside of the U.S. was Matthew Waxman in the 2011 WPT Paris after over a decade of WPT play.

To be fair I think it is quite likely that the list of double WT title winners will get a lot bigger ... and that all of the new list members being European.

I look at the final table and you see names that are completely recognizable if you are following the Global poker boom currently under way.
