WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event Won By Theo Jorgensen

Theo Jorgensen has won the WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event, after defeating a field of 247 players over five days to take down the title and the €633,902 first place prize.
As the remaining eight players took their seats at the final table, Danish player Theo Jorgensen on around two million in chips was the table leader followed by Day 1A chip leader Fabrice Touil on around one million.
First to exit the final table was a short stacked Jimmy Ostensson, whose pocket 9’s shove was looked up by Fabrice Touil with Ac 6c. The Frenchman hit both his cards and Ostensson was out in eighth and collected €70,435 for his efforts.
Next, Arnaud Mattern had watched his stack dwindle from the end of Day 4 and as his slide continued at the final table, he decided to push after being dealt Ac Qd, only to run into Antoine Amourette’s pocket A’s. Mattern walked away in seventh and picked up €82,175.
Nourredine Aitalebís was then sent to the rails in sixth (€93,910), when his Ah Jc push ran into Per Linde’s pocket Q’s, followed by Fabrice Touil in fifth (€140,870) who got unlucky after he went all-in with his remaining 500,000 chips holding As 8h and was called by Theo Jorgensen with Jd 8s, who hit his J on the turn.
Fourth place went to Mickael Guenni (€187,825), whose short stacked push with pocket 5’s was unlucky to come up against Jorgensen’s pocket 9’s, and then it was the turn of Per Linde who collected €234,780 for a third place finish when his daring 7c 5d pre-flop push was called by Jorgenson holding Kd Js, who then proceeded to make a straight on the flop.
The stage was now set for an exciting heads-up battle between Antoine Amourette and Theo Jorgensen, but just three deals later it was all over. Theo Jorgensen with more than six million in chips, and a 10 to 1 chip advantage, was dealt an As Kc and called his opponent’s Kd 6h pre-flop shove. Despite hitting a 6 on the flop, an A on the turn sealed his fate and Antoine Amourette walked away €328,690 richer after his deep run in the tournament.
In the meantime, Danish professional poker player Theo Jorgensen collected €633,902 for his impressive victory at the WPT Grand Prix de Paris Main Event 2010, and the WSOP bracelet holder has now earned over $2 million from live tournament cashes.
