Walid Bou Habib

Last night, EPT9 Deauville runner-up Walid Bou Habib won the EPT Vienna €2,000 Turbo event. The 43-year-old Lebanese engineer, who is a serial online qualifier on PokerStars, cut a deal with British pro Tom Hall in heads-up play to take the title and €107,700 first prize.

The tournament attracted 319 runners and created a prize pool of €618,860. That was spread out among the top 47 players with some notables cashing including Steve O’Dwyer (47th - €3,530), Andrew Chen (34th - €3,960), Anton Wigg (19th - €6,370), Todd Terry (14th - €8,230), and Jason Wheeler (12th - €9,160).

Habib, who lives in Beirut and is part of a close-knit group of Lebanese players who compete on the EPT, is the current #4 tournament player in his country with more than $1.2 million in live tournament winnings.

As well as his Deauville second place for €475,000, he also went deep at the PCA in 2011 and the EPT4 Grand Final, and has a further nine cashes on the tour. However, last night’s victory is by far his biggest tournament win.
