The World Poker Tour Bucharest €3,000 no-limit hold’em main event has come to a close at the Regent Casino in Bucharest, Romania. The tournament attracted a field of 161 players, and the total prize pool for the event was €449,450. The eventual champion was Guillaume Darcourt (pictured right) , a 37-year-old businessman from France. He won the top prize worth €125,846 along with a $25,000 seat in the WPT World Championship .“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 A-A with A-9 but hit a straight. I will always remember that hand.”The two Romanian players at the final table were the first to fall. Eva Iosif was eliminated in sixth place (€23,150), and Abdula Atila fell in fifth place (€30,550). Jose De La Guardia then busted in fourth place (€36,600). American Joseph Ebanks was dominated when he moved all in with Q-J and found out he was up against the A-J of Darcout. The board bricked out and Darcout took a 3-1 chip advantage into the final against Simon Munz.Darcourt played aggressive in the final heads-up match to win the tournament and he impressed his opponent in the process. “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,” said Munz. The final hand saw Munz get it all in with J-7 in the hole on a 9-4-2 flop. Darcourt called him down with Q-9 and after the turn and river brought a queen and a 4, Darcourt won the tournament with two pair.Final-Table Results:1st: Guillaume Darcourt — €125,846 + $25,000 WPT World Championship seat 2nd: Simon Münz — €93,400 3rd: Joseph Ebanks — €59,750 4th: Jose De La Guardia — €36,600 5th: Abdula Atila — €30,550 6th: Eva Iosif — €23,150The next WPT event is the WPT Championship that will take place at Bellagio in Las Vegas from April 18-24.
