Yakiv Syzghanov claimed the top spot at the WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence Main Event, walking away with a handsome €133,000. His victory came after outlasting a strong field of 758 participants, contributing to a total prize pool of €727,680. From the outset, Laurent Michot held the chip lead, but it was Syzghanov who ultimately grabbed the title, marking his first major tournament win with a memorable full house in the final hand against Michot, who took home €82,000 for his second-place finish.

Syzghanov, known for his presence in Rozvadov’s games and the French poker circuit, called this win “life-changing.” Beyond the significant cash prize, he secured a seat at the WPT World Championship at the Wynn, valued at $10,400, a dream opportunity for him to compete in Las Vegas.

The final table was competitive, featuring notable players like Quebec’s Frédéric Normand, who finished third with €61,000, and PMU Poker’s Team Pro, Dylan Cechowski, finishing fourth and earning €45,000. Normand had a standout year in 2023, including a major title win at the WPT and a side event victory at the Wynn’s WPT World Championship in December.
