"It's amazing.  I am really, really happy.  This is one of my poker dreams and it came true," Traply said after the tournament.

Tarply was cheered to victory by about a dozen Hungarian supporters, chanting songs and slogans in their native language.

When Tarply won, he was draped by a Hungarian flag with the national colors, red, green and white.

"In Hungary, the poker is growing very fast.  There is a poker boom right now.  And, I think it will be bigger after I won my bracelet," Traply said.

"I think I will be a national hero, or something."
