Nolan Dalla's Report 

Andre Boyer is someone you want to cheer for. In addition to being a nice guy, he has his priorities straight. Boyer has been playing in the World Series of Poker for ten years. He’s made several final table appearances, yet had never won poker’s most coveted prize – a gold bracelet.

Cheered on by his wife Odette Tremblay, Boyer overcame an overwhelming chip disadvantage and earned a well-deserved victory in the $3,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship.

“My wife loves poker even more than I do,” Boyer said afterward. “It was really wonderful to have her here with me tonight. I think it is important that two people who are together share something like this that is really special.”

Boyer’s special moment came in an event that attracted a whopping 1,010 entries.

Andre Boyer was born in Montreal, Quebec. He is 62-years-old. Prior to playing poker most of the time, he owned a successful company which produced warehousing materials. After retiring, Boyer and his wife moved to Las Vegas. Boyer, who speaks French, is also the television voice for the ESPN equivalent in Canada (RDS), which shows WSOP broadcasts.

Boyer’s best finish at the WSOP had been 6th place in the main event in 1996. But this victory was much more fulfilling. Not only did Boyer win his first gold bracelet, he also earned one of the largest prize payouts at this year’s tournament -- $682,810.
