Adrien Allain wins WPT Amneville

Monday, 7 November 2011

While most of the poker world had their eyes on the November Nine action at the Rio there was still plenty of cash up for grabs in France as WPT Amneville drew to a close yesterday.

In the end it was home player Adrien Allain who took the €310,633 first prize. The Frenchman got lucky early in the day, cracking Scott Baumstein's pocket aces with A10 but didn't look back from then on.

The youngster worked his way through a final table that included Arnaud Trouer, Michel Konieczny, Baumstein and bwin sponsored pro Thibaud Guenegou to set up a heads up battle with Party Poker qualifier Jordane Ouin. The key hand saw all the chips hit the middle with Allain's flush beating the amateur's trip nines. Allain sealed the win soon after when his pocket tens held up against Ouin's K9

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1st: Adrien Allain: €310,633
2nd: Jordane Ouin: €170,365
3rd: Thibaud Guenegou: €113,580
4th: Scott Baumstein: €80,640
5th: Michel Konieczny: €60,197
6th: Arnaud Trouer: €47,700
