A total of 161 players bought into the latest WPT event in Bucharest but none could match French businessman Guillaume Darcourt.
The 37-year-old finally emerged victorious after an epic heads up confrontation with Germany's Simon Munz. Munz, a high profile personality on popular website PokerStrategy.com, went into the final day as chip leader but couldn't outrun the Swiss based Frenchman. The chips eventually went in with Darcourt holding Q9 and Munz J7. There was to be no way back for the German after Darcourt hit two pair on the flop. The Parisian collected €125,846 and a seat at the WPT World Championship Event worth €25,000 for the win.“This win is amazing,” said Darcourt, “I was eighth in chips after the first day and chip leader at the end of day two. I was running really good on day three too but started to slip away. One hand changed the whole tournament for me. I was up against AA with A9 but hit a straight. I will always remember that hand.”Munz was magnanimous in defeat saying, “Darcourt deserved to win. I would have loved to have really attacked him in the heads-up but he just wouldn’t fold and I didn’t have enough chips.”There was to be no back to back glory for Carlos Mortensen though. The WPT Hollywood winner was on course for an unprecedented WPT double but eventually bubbled the final table, finishing in seventh.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st) Guillaume Darcourt (FRA) €125,846 + $25,000 WPT World Championship seat2nd) Simon "Schnibl0r" Münz (GER) €93,4003rd) Joseph Ebanks (USA) €59,7504th) Jose De La Guardia (PAN) €36,6005th) Abdula Atila (ROM) €30,5506th) Eva Iosif (ROM) €23,150
