A Lebanese Guy Named Joe Wins EPT London

JosephendJoe Mouawad from Beirut, Lebanon has won the European Poker Tour event in London, banking £611,520. Germany’s Florian Langmann, who is not a woman, runner up’d. Another German, Marcel Baran, finished third.

France’s Anthony Lellouche ended up in 6th place, winning £97,843, which he immediately surrendered to the two Germans.*

With his win at the Vic, the 47-year-old Mouawad joins the ranks of other Lebanese born poker players, including Joe Hachem, Freddy Deeb and Sammy Farha, who have made names for themselves in the poker world without having names that sound very Lebanese to us. Like Hakim or Bashir or Rafiq.
