July, 20 2009 (PAP PR Wire) — Everest Poker qualifier Antoine Saout, just 25, from Saint Martin des Champs, France, has enjoyed unprecedented support from his fellow Everest Poker players throughout the WSOP Main Event. As a direct result of his heroics in reaching the November Nine, 51 players who qualified with Everest now share a $1,000,000 bonus.
Antoine Saout has, in his first-ever WSOP, made the final table from a starting line up of more than 6,400 players, a major achievement in itself. Plus, he had to do it the hard way — for most of his last three days he was sat next to arguably the best player in the world, Phil Ivey.
Antoine, who qualified for the $10,000 WSOP Main Event on EverestPoker.com with just $50, is now already a millionaire and will contest the final table in November broadcast live on ESPN throughout Europe.
Antoine is one of only two players to make the final table from outside the USA, we wish him good luck in November and he has the whole of European poker behind him!
