Seat 1: Joseph El Khoury, 41, Beirut, Lebanon - 1,710,000

Joseph El Khoury

Travel agent Joseph El Khoury is one of 15 Lebanese players who competed at EPT Deauville and there are still three left –- taking them from 1.92% of the field on Day 1 to 37.5% for the final.

Lebanon is the current EPT Country of the Year. Like his fellow countrymen, Jeffrey Hakim and Walid Bou Habbib, El Khoury is an EPT regular who has played around 20 EPTs in the last five years. He has cashed twice, both times in Prague, but his best live result before now was fifth place at WPT Cyprus last summer. That give him a $65,770 payday but he’s guaranteed at least €60,000 here in Deauville.
