Maintaining his lead throughout the finale, Elio Fox won the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) Main Event for €1.4 million. Chris Moorman barely missed the bracelet.
The Final Table of the €10,400 WSOPE Main Event featured a line-up that showed off many of the most prominent online and live players of today. In the chiplead started the US online pro Elio ’smokrokflock’ Fox.

After a couple of double ups – first, Brian Roberts on Moorman with pocket aces, then Shawn Buchanan on Dermot Blain, followed by Blain on Fox – Jake Cody was, to some surprise, eliminated in 7th place at Level 26 (5,000/25,000/50,000). Next out was Buchanan, followed by his eliminator Blain and, later on, Roberts.

In about ten minutes’ time, the heads-up was also set at Level 28 (10,000/40,000/80,000): Fox opened to 160,000 from the button, Moritz Kranich shoved his 1,600,000, Moorman folded and Fox called.

Elio Fox: 11,095,000
Chris Moorman: 6,720,000

Fox managed to further increase his lead; Moorman started the final hand with only 2,100,000. They shoved preflop.
