Can Theo Jorgensen win back-to-back Grand Prix de Paris'?

With the final 27 players all guaranteed a cash 2012 World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris, a few of them are looking for their second WPT title. Juha Helppi, Theo Jorgensen, Bruno Lopes and Sean Jazayeri have all won WPT titles in the past and you can find their results below. Jorgensen won this very event back in 2010.

  • Juha Helppi: 2002 Ultimate Bet Poker Classic — $50,000
  • Theo Jorgensen: 2010 Grand Prix de Paris — €638,377
  • Bruno Lopes: 2012 WPT National Series Cannes — €108,000
  • Sean Jazayeri: 2012 L.A. Poker Classic — $1,370,240

With four players left amongst the final three tables, there's a good shot one of these three reach the official WPT final table of six to really get a shot at title number two.

Fabian Quoss opened to 8,000 from the cutoff, Bryan Colin three-bet to 23,500 from the small blind, and Antony Lellouche cold four-bet to 49,000 from the big blind. Quoss quickly folded, and Colin announced all in.

Lellouche snapped it off, but wasn't very happy to see Colin's hand.

Showdown
Colin: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Lellouche: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

The board ran out {2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Clubs}, and Lellouche was eliminated. The remaining 27 players are all guaranteed at least €13,305. We'll bring you a redraw as soon as possible.

On the first hand of hand-for-hand play, there were two all ins.

On one table, Michael Kwierk open-shoved with {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}, and was called by Raphaël Abitbol who had {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, and Kwierk doubled.

At another table, there was a massive all in between Joe Serock and Timothy Adams. After a series of preflop raises, about 340,000 was in the middle, and the two were racing.

Adam's {10-Clubs}{10-Spades} held against Serock's {a-Spades}{k-Spades} on the flop ({5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{j-Spades}) and the turn ({9-Diamonds}), but the {k-Diamonds} spiked on the river, doubling Serock.

Just Before Break...

[user101598]
Ekrem Sanioglu can't believe what happened
Ekrem Sanioglu can't believe what happened

Just before the break, Philipp Gruissem and Ekrem Sanioglu were heads up with the board reading {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}.

Gruissem checked to Sanioglu, who bet 28,000. Gruissem check-raised to about 100,000.

"I am all-in," Sanioglu announced instantly.

Gruissem tanked and asked for a count.

"You have plenty of chips," Sanioglu said to Gruissem. "Call."

"I don't think I can fold," Gruissem admitted. "I am sorry if I suck out on you."

Gruissem called, and the hands were opened.

Gruissem: {J-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}
Sanioglu: {9-Clubs} {9-Hearts}

The {3-Diamonds} was a brick, but the {7-Hearts} slammed on the river, giving Sanioglu a winning straight.

Sanioglu smacked the table in disappointment and is eliminated, while Gruissem is up to an impressive 930,000 chips.
