 The Grand Prix de Paris was one of the original stops on the WPT, and the only foreign stop for quite some time. In its second incarnation the Paris tournament is the first stop on this the WPT’s 9th season. 

With a strong international poker pro presence, the final table is shaping up to be a star-studded affair, with players like Isabelle Mercier, Antione Saout, and Andrew Feldman all in terrific shape to make a deep run in the event.

With a €2.7 million prize-pool, and €633k going to the winner, the poker players will be battling hard to reach the final table. Many of the big names who weren’t lucky enough to survive the first day will likely be hanging around Paris for a few extra days; when the €20,000 high-roller tournament is set to begin –The high-roller events are popping up at more and more major tournaments, almost as a second-chance event for the top pros.

After three days of play, the money bubble has burst at the World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris, and the remaining 25 players will be back in action on Wednesday looking to move farther up the pay scale. Day 3 saw 48 players take to the poker tables at the Aviation Club in Paris France, and it wasn’t long before the money bubble burst as Stuart Rutter was eliminated in 28th place –guaranteeing the remaining players some type of compensation for their efforts.

Leading the field is Jimmy Ostennson and his 719,000 chips. While the field doesn’t contain much in the way of star-power, there are still a number of strong European poker players in the running. Still in the hunt are: Fabrice Tuil, Steven van Zadelhoff, and Andrew Teng.


Day 4 will see the 25 remaining players whittled down to a final table of eight, a change from the usual six player final table which has been a staple of the World Poker Tour. Perhaps the change is to follow the European Poker Tour’s lead, or perhaps to break up the monotony after 9 seasons.

The 25 players who returned to the Aviation Club for Day 4 at the World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris tournament has been carved down to a WPT first; eight players. Leading the pack is Theo Jurgenson with a massive chip-lead of over 2-to-1 on his nearest competitor Fabrice Touil –who has been at or near the top of the leader-board since the conclusion of day 1 play.

Poker players are also in store for a very long wait as the final table isn’t set to get underway until Saturday at 3PM local time. In addition to the final table being played on Saturday, poker fans will also be in store for even more poker action as Saturday will also be the start of the €20,000 High-Roller tournament.
