Baptiste Chavaillaz Wins WSOPC Main Event at the Bike

Music Industry Pro Outlasts Record-Setting 732-Player Field

Baptiste Chavaillaz is accustomed to living life in the fast lane. He works in the music business and travels all over the world with famous bands and recording artists. But he produced a major hit of his own tonight, by winning the latest World Series of Poker Main Event Championship, held at The Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles.

 Chavaillaz pulled off what must be classified as a major surprise, defeating a formidable final day lineup which featured several accomplished rivals, including multiple players with millions in career tournament winnings. But it was Chavaillaz who performed like the consummate pro, beating some of the world’s best players at their own game. Indeed, in Chavaillaz’s parlance, it was the equivalent of an amateur musician taking the stage and out-jamming Eric Clapton, out-singing Alicia Keys, or out-rapping Jay-Z.

 This day was music to Chavaillaz’s ears. The royalty for his winning tune amounted to a whopping $216,275. He was also presented with his first WSOP Circuit gold ring. Moreover, Chavaillaz earned an automatic qualification into the WSOP National Championship presented by Southern Comfort 100 Proof, which takes place in May.

 “How much did I win?” Chavaillaz asked nonchalantly following his surprise victory. All joking aside, Chavaillaz has absolutely no complaints.

 “It’s all still sinking in,” he said. “I’ve been playing poker for 12 years. But I’ve never had anything like this happen before. I had not even played in a major tournament like this, ever.”
