Thomas Cazayous Scoops $3k 6-Handed Bracelet And $414,766

Frenchman Thomas Cazayous was celebrating last night after taking down event 31 on the WSOP schedule, the $3k NLHE 6-Handed title, capturing his first gold bracelet and a $414,766 payday – almost $400k more than his previous biggest cash!

With 754 entries and a prizefund of just over $2million, Cazayous was one of seven players who returned for the final day’s play. Although primarily an online cash game player, the 24-year old London-resident Parisien didn’t feel daunted by his more experienced foes.

"If I'm honest, there was good players but I felt very, very confident," he told WSOP reporters afterwards. "I don't want to say I think I was the best...but I felt pretty sure what I had to do."

What he had to do for the bracelet turned out to be straightforward…seeing off all three of his final four opponents, the final hand seeing him call off Nicholas Howard’s queen high bluff-shove with two pair.

“You’re going to win the tournament with that call,” Howard said, as he graciously accepted defeat and an excellent second-place worth over $¼ million.
