U.S. American Elio Fox Wins 2011 WSOP Europe Main Event

Elio Fox, a U.S. American from NYC, has won the 2011 WSOP Europe Main Event, €1,400,000, a lot of new European fans.

Some backstory…

James Bord–who won last year’s WSOP Europe Main Event–is also an owner of Matchbook.com. And like we love us some U.S. America, Bord feels the same pride for Europeans. He feels so much pride that he was willing to refund WSOPE wagers (up to $500) if an American took down the Main Event. Said Bord:

“I don’t think an American can win the bracelet, Europeans are now far superior. We used to look up to the U.S players back in the day, but those days are now long gone. I’m prepared to put my money where my mouth is and refund any losing bets up to $500 if an American wins.”

That’ll leave a mark.

Fox defeated Chris Moorman heads-up (€800,000) and a stacked final table to secure his first bracelet. This is Fox’s third major score of the year, as he captured a Venetian Deep Stacks event ($87,192) and the Bellagio Cup VII ($669,692) this summer.

Shawn Buchanan finished sixth (€200,000) and Jake Cody came in seventh (€150,000).

    Team America completely illogical – Giving a Fuck Yeah to slavery, yet having women on the team… Should have had only white males on the team, and given a hearty Fuck Yeah to “White Male Chauvinism”.
    If you’re gonna do it, do it right!!!
