France-based Welshman Jeremy Nock secured the largest live tournament cash of his career on Monday when he chopped the Deepstack Open Paris event four ways to bank €47,000.
Nock was one of 701 entrant in the €550 buy-in DSO Paris Main Event that took place at the Cercle Cadet in Paris and one of only three non-French players to navigate their way to the top 70 places where the €342,515 prize pool was distributed.
When the tournament was left with only nine players in the hunt for the €65,000 first place prize, Nock held around 30% of the chips in play and looked set to take down the second live tournament of his career.

Eventually, Nock found himself four-handed with Florent Mondoloni, Guy Felder and Fahd Kaabat and the final four players decided to look at a potential deal. Although the deal was not reported on, Nock informed his followers on Twitter that the final four players agreed upon a deal and told UK & Ireland PokerNews that his share was a cool €47,000.

Next up for Nock is the France Poker Series and then some events at the European Poker Tour Deauville festival as he attempts to continue his good fortune. Away from the felt, Nock is a hotelier in Paris who specialises in renovating hotels into boutique venues. If he continues banking big five-figure score, maybe he’ll step into the poker tournament world on a more regular basis.
