Congratulations then to Christophe Savary, for whom victory must taste rather...erm...Sweet! The Frenchman started the final table in second place and mostly kept out of the early action, letting other players eliminate each other.
The key turning point for Savary was when he flopped a set and rivered a full house as Ludovic Lacay made a very disguised backdoor flush. The pot was the biggest of the tournament at that point and completely transformed the run of play. Lacay had been the chip leader for most of the day and was relegated to short stack while Savary took over the chip lead and never looked back.
With Lacay eliminated in 3rd place, Savary closed out his victory at the first time of asking, catching a straight against Eoghan O'Dea's flopped pair of Aces. The Frenchman joins compatriots, ElkY, David Benyamine and Thomas Bichon as one of those who have picked up a prestigious WPT bracelet.
Congratulations to him and all our finalists today, from Pokernews, it's over and out!
