France’s Alexandre Reard Wins 2021 WSOP Event #47: $5,000 Freezeout NLH


After only two hours of play on Tuesday, Alexandre Reard took down the 2021 World Series of Poker Event #47: $5,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. The French player walked away the proud owner of his first bracelet and is $428,694 richer after beating a 491-entry field.

“When I saw the river card, it was just an indescribable feeling,” Reard said after the victory. “I was seeing my wife and all my friends crying and exulting on the rail. It’s such a sincere and strong moment!”.

Reard, who before the victory already had more than $3 million in live earnings including two WSOP Circuit rings, managed to hold the chip lead for the entirety of the final table, which was railed by a large crowd of supporters.

“I really wanted and needed that bracelet. It’s not an outcome but more a beautiful step in my career, and I hope for many more,” Reard added.

“It’s been a while now that the French poker community is growing and getting stronger. Today the victory is mine but I have no doubts there will be more to come very soon,” said Reard about his poker crew and the enthusiastic rail. “We all come here to live those kind of moments and experience those feelings”.

There will be no time to rest for the new champion as he was already thinking of registering in Event #51: $3,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em, which started earlier in the day.

“I won’t party today, there are too many beautiful tournaments to play but we’ll definitely organize a big party with the french community at the end of the series to celebrate. I need to keep working and stay focused for now!”
