To find Georges Yazbeck’s last win you have to scroll back to 2009 when he took down a €2,000 side event at the EPT Grand Final. Yazbeck’s win will do Lebanon no harm in retaining their EPT Country of the Year status, which has been helped by two of his countrymen making the EPT Deauville final table. Two more are currently among the final 14 players in the EPT London Main Event. Links to live coverage below.
