Jorgensen Takes The WPT Grand Prix
May 17, 2022
Theo Jorgensen, the chip leader going into the final table of the World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris, successfully closed out that event over the weekend, claiming a top prize worth €633,902.

Jorgensen, even without the significant chip advantage, would still have to had to have been considered one of the favorites leading up to Saturday’s final table.  This past World Series of Poker bracelet winner, prior to this event had already amassed over $1.5 Million in tournament winnings, in only the last half-dozen years.

Arguably the next major threat at Saturday’s final table, at least when gauged by past results, would have to be Arnaud Mattern- a European Poker Tour star- with over $1.5 Million in winnings of his own.  Mattern, entered the final table fourth in chips, but still significantly behind the top stacks and unfortunately was unable to use that stack to any great effect, finishing in seventh place overall and cashing for a little over $100,000 US.

Somewhat surprisingly, it was actually lesser known Antoine Amourette who made the most headway against Jorgensen throughout the course of the final day of play; an unexpected and note worthy accomplishment, particularly as Antoine entered the final table with over 2 million less chips than the chip leader- the second smallest stack of the day’s final eight. 

Amourette eventually ended his impressive run in second place out of 247 initial runners, a feat that earned him €328,690 (nearly $440,000 USD).

The final table finish positions for the 2010 WPT Grand Prix de Paris, were as follows:

1st.  Theo Jorgensen- €633,902

2nd.  Antoine Amourette- €328,690

3rd.  Per Linde- €234,780

4th.  Mickael Guenni- €187,825

5th.  Fabrice Touil- €140,870

6th.  Nourredine Aïtaleb- €93,910

7th.  Arnaud Mattern- €82,175

8th.  Jimmy Ostensson- €70,435
