Final Table Bios: Seat 7, David Benyamine (410,000)

David Benyamine
David Benyamine
35-year old David Benyamine, from Paris, France, has had several successful professional careers before migrating to the green felt. His first career saw Benyamine as one of France's top-ranked tennis players. A back injury cut short his promising career, and so Benyamine turned his attention to billiards, quickly becoming a top-ten billiards player in France. He has enjoyed similar success at the poker table, with one WPT title under his belt (the 2003 Grand Prix de Paris), a first-place finish in the WPT's 2005 Battle of Champions, and total career tournament earnings exceeding $1 million. He is one of the big names at today's final table looking for his first WSOP bracelet to add to his impressive poker resume.

Benyamine is a specialist in pot-limit Omaha but has made a name for himself playing no-limit hold'em tournaments and as a winning player on Game Show Network's High Stakes Poker. Benyamine has one daughter and is currently engaged to poker professional Erica Schoenberg.
