Last year the coastal city of Cannes, Frances was flush with big headlines when the World Series of Poker paid a visit for the 2012 WSOP Europe series. We all remember Phil Hellmth's memorable 13th bracelet win in the Main Event, but that was the cherry on top of two weeks of incredible poker moments. We saw One Drop winner Antonio Esfandiari win his second bracelet of the year just weeks after winning the biggest payday in poker history. We saw Francisco da Costa Santos win Portgual's first-ever bracelet, then we saw Jon Aguiar make it two by defeating Brandon Cantu in the much-discussed final round of the Mix Max event.
With this year's WSOP Europe in Paris just over two weeks away, it seemed like a good time as any to revisit some of the highlights. David Tuchman and the livestreaming crew were on hand for all of the preliminary bracelet action. Let's take a walk down memory lane with some of our most memorable streams from last year's event:
