On the button, Imed Ben Mahmoud raised to 62,000. Yannick Bonnet reraised from the big blind to 150,000. Mahmoud reraised all in, having Bonnet covered. With a total stack of 735,000, Bonnet called and the cards were on their backs.

Bonnet turned over the {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} for two overcards against the {J-Spades}{J-Clubs} for Mahmoud. With less chips, Bonnet was the player at risk and looking to double up. If not, the first gold bracelet of the 2012 World Series of Poker Europe was going to be wrapped around Mahmoud's wrist.

The flop came out {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Spades} and you could see the body of Mahmoud tense up a little more as he anxiously awaited two more cards to come. The turn brought the {5-Hearts} and that meant the victory was just one card away for Mahmoud.

The dealer burned one more time and slapped the {9-Clubs} on the river, awarding the hand and the tournament to Mahmoud. He erupted from his chair in excitement as he had captured the title here in the first event.

For his runner-up finish, Bonnet earned €90,884.
