Norbert Szecsi became only the fourth European champion through the completion of 42 events at the 2013 World Series of Poker, joining two Belgian winners as well as one Bulgarian.

Previous Hungarians to win at the WSOP include Peter Traply, Peter Gelenscer, and Vlademar Kwaysser.

Szecsi topped the $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournament.  He topped a field of 2,100 players.  First place paid $345,037.  This was his first gold bracelet.

The winner, who lives in Budapest, is mostly an online pro.  However, he has posted some impressive results in live tournaments as well, especially given his young age.

Szecsi won a tournament in Spain back in 2010.  He attended the WSOP for the first time last year and now has a total of four cashes.  Before this victory, his combined earnings for all tournaments amounted to $133,881.  He more than tripled his career earnings now with this victory.
