Florian Langmann had more than $2 million in live tournament cashes but perhaps the old saying "never holler WHOA in a horse race" — especially when you're in competition mode at the World Series of Poker — was nagging at his thoughts as he fought his way through a field of 474 in Event #54: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low for $297,650. He claimed his first bracelet when he defeated Zach Freeman heads-up!
