Alors que la situation politique et économique du Venezuela semble chaque jour un peu plus fragile, Joseph Di Rosa Rojas a hissé bien haut les couleurs de son pays en remportant la première édition du WSOP Marathon !

L'Event #23 de la 48e édition des World Series Of Poker au buy-in de 2620$ (l'équivalent de la distance en miles d'un marathon olympique, ndlr) proposait des niveaux de 100 minutes et il a fallu 53 heures de poker au joueur du Venezuela pour empocher 690 469$ et la première victoire de ce pays d'Amérique du Sud aux WSOP.

Chipleader à l'entame de l'ultime journée de compétition, Di Rosa Rojas a débuté son head's up avec une avance de 8 contre 1 en jetons. Alexander Lynskey s'est bien battu avant de shove {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}... et de s'empaler sur les {10-}{10-} du Venezuelien qui avait mis le filet en place avec un limp. Rojas a tremblé sur le flop {q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Diamonds} mais le tournant {q-Hearts} a permis à son rail d'envahir la place !

Joueur professionnel, le vainqueur a malgré tout été submergé par l'émotion. Pour sa deuxième visite à Las Vegas, il remporte son premier MTT live alors qu'il ne comptait jusque là que 55 000$ de gains en tournois !

264 joueurs se sont partagés le prizepool généré par un field de 1759 entrants. Rojas s'impose à l'issue d'une finale où l'on retrouvait Tim Reilly (4e - 224,316$), Julian Stuer (5e - 165 277$), Faraz Jaka (6e - 123 105$), Maurice Hawkins (9e pour 54 356$) ou encore le vainqueur WSOP de 53 ans, Jeff Tomlinson (3e - 307 728$).

Quatre Français ont atteint l'argent sur ce tournoi. En terminant 73e pour 7602$, Alexandre Reard a marqué de précieux points pour conserver sa place de n°1 tricolore au POY GPI 2017. Ludovic Moryousef (102e - 5 369$), Bertrand Rosique (131e - 4 909$) et Louis Linard (142e - 4 909$) signent aussi une jolie place payée sur un tournoi à la structure exceptionnelle.
