Theo Jorgensen win WPT Paris Main Event

Monday, 17 May 2010

The latest main event on the WPT calendar came to a conclusion on Saturday with Denmark's Theo Jorgensen celebrating in the French capital.

The 36-year-old from Copenhagen went into the last day with a massive chip advantage and kept up the pressure throughout the eight-man final table. The Dane eliminated a host of players to set up a heads up encounter with Antoine Amourette who had bobbed and weaved with a short stack for much of the day.

Jorgensen held a 10 to 1 chip lead going into two handed play and he didn't allow his French opponent any chance of a comeback. The Dane sealed the win after just three hands, his AK outrunning Amourette's K6.

Jorgensen, who has reached the final table of two EPT events and had multiple cashes at the WSOP, collected a first prize of €634k, the biggest of an already successful career.

Final Table positions and payouts were as follows:
1.Theo Jorgensen - €633,902
2.Antoine Amourette - €328,690
3.Per Linde - €234,780
4.Mickael Guenni - €187,825
