French player Yann Brosolo, sponsored by Titan.fr, yesterday won the Euro Finals of Poker (EFOP) Gold Championship for a first prize of €70,000. After three days of poker action at the Aviation Club de France in Paris, Brosolo defeated Samir Choubani in heads-up play when his pair of sixes bettered Choubani’s K 8 on an unmatched board.
Choubani had been chipleader going into the final day of play but had to settle for second place, worth €62,500. Brosolo’s win was the biggest cashout of his career.
In December, Brosolo finished in 5th place at the EPT Prague €5,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event for a €35,000 prize.
Every year the Aviation Club hosts the EFOP tournaments, a series of events that in addition to the €2,000 buy-in Gold Championship also stages a flagship €5,000 buy-in Diamond Championship tournament and a €10,000 high roller event.
The winners of the European Poker Awards will be announced at the Aviation Club as part of the festivities. Team Titan’s Sam Trickett is nominated for two awards, both Player of the Year and Best Tournament Performance.
