The eyes of the French public were fixed on Gabriel Nassif during the final table of the Event # 37, the $ 5,000 Limit Hold'em of the World Series Of Poker 2013 (WSOP). Chipleader in the beginning of the final heads-up, in front of the American Michael Moore, the French had the luck to win the golden bracelet. But the chance decided differently, he eventually bowed in the second position. A little reminder concerning the progress of this event; 170 participants were present in the poker room, to take part in it. Gabriel had ups and downs, before rising on the second step of the podium. While there was only 12 players still in the running, he finished in the 9th position at the level of chip count. Thanks to an aggressive style of game and his ability to play poker well, Nassif has afterward raised at the place of chipleader with 1,680,000 chips in hand, against 870,000 for Michael Moore. But the American has immediately managed to reverse the situation for his advantage and finished to eliminate the French. He pocketed $ 211,743 and won the bracelet for the occasion, while the runner-up settled with a prize of $ 130,852.
