Having won third position in the famous November Nine of the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the 25-year-old Frenchman, Antoine Saout, is undoubtedly talented. Giving the best French performance of the prestigious tournament held in Las Vegas, he won a little over $3,5 million bringing the total of his tournament winnings to $4 million. After Bertrand Elky Grospellier, he is now the 2nd French player to win big in a tournament.
On top of his winnings, this young Breton from Morlaix, with his aggressive playing style, has in addition signed the biggest ever sponsorship contract in French poker. His talent became apparent shortly before this year's WSOP final. In fact he was awarded: a paid place at the WPT of Marrakech, a thirteenth place in the Spanish Poker Tour, a third place at the High Roller of Enghien with a €10,000 buy-in and another payed place in the Barrière Poker Tour held in the French town La Baule.
