WPT Paris: Salsberg pocketed the € 400,000 prize

The World Poker Tour Grand Prix of Paris, which was held at the Aviation Club de France comes to end with the victory of Matt Salsberg after a head's up against the WPT 2010 champion Theo Jorgensen. The Paris stage of the WPT Season XI gathered in all a field of 228 players, including 24 re-entry during the five days of competition but on Saturday, during the final day of the Main Event, there remains only six participants who clashed to claim the title: Theo Jorgensen, Timothy Adams, Matt Salsberg, Mohsin Charania, Fabian Quoss and Philipp Gruissem, the first to be eliminated left the tournament with a gain of € 75,765. After an hour and a half of play, Fabian Quoss left the final table followed a few hours after by the EPT Monte Carlo 2012 champion Mohsin Charania who for his 5th place pocketed € 95,615.

Short stack of the final table, Timothy Adams (4th, € 125,775) saw his stack changing hand to Philipp Gruissem (third, € 170,065), a player who was subsequently removed by Theo Jorgensen who immediately after were qualified for the head's up with Matt Slasberg. The two players started the confrontation of this exciting poker tournament with more than three million chips each. Theo Jorgensen took a slight advantage with a stack of 3,500,000 against 3,365,000 for Matt Salsberg. But this latter reversed the trend in two hands with bluffs that let Jorgensen lose most of his chips. Slasberg relegated Jorgensen to the 2nd place while he was vying a second WPT victory.
