Just 24 of the 228 players that started the WPT Grand Prix de Paris are left with Philipp ‘philbort’ Gruissem once again the man in pole position.
The German pro finished day 3 as chip leader (with 1,060,000) largely thanks to winning a huge pot with Ekrem Sanioglu. Gruissem check-raised a 10,9,8 rainbow flop up to 100,000 and Sanioglu quickly moved all in. Gruissem needed help with his JJ trailing Sanioglu's set of 9s. The innocuous 3 came on the turn, but the 7 on the river gave Gruissem the winning straight and rocketed him up in chips.Other notables still in the hunt for the €400,000 first prize are Theo Jorgensen with 201,000, Kyle Julius with 122,000 and Andrew "luckychewy" Lichtenberger who is the tournament's short stack with 54,000. Jorgensen is the last of the Grand Prix de Paris champions remaining, after David Benyamine was eliminated earlier.The money bubble has burst too with PokerStars pro Jason Mercier squeaking into the money in 27th. Anthony Lellouche was the unfortunate bubble boy.The remaining 24 players will return at at 15:00 CEST to play down to the official final table of six.The chip leaders are as follows:1 Philipp Gruissem 1,060,000 2 Matthew Salsberg 951,000 3 Idris Ambraisse 591,000 4 Bruno Lopes 440,000 5 Joe Serock 411,000 6 Jerome Douieb 402,000 Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
