WPT on FSN Grand Prix de Paris Part III: Jorgensen Looks to Make WPT History
Sunday nights are poker night on Fox Sports Network where new episodes of the World Poker Tour Season XI can be found. This past weekend, the conclusion of the Grand Prix de Paris, a €7,500 Main Event that attracted 228 entries at the Aviation Club in Paris, France, was shown, and just three men remained in contention for the €400,000 top prize—Theo Jorgensen, Philipp Gruissem and Matt Salsberg.
The three had survived a tough final table that also included Fabian Quoss, Mohsin Charania and Timothy Adams. You can read about the former’s demise in our recap of Part I, while the latter two fell in the second episode.
Interestingly, Jorgensen was looking to become the first player in WPT history to win the same title twice after having won the Grand Prix de Paris in Season IX. Could history be made?
Here’s how things stacked up at the top of the broadcast, which began with the blinds at 20,000/40,000/5,000:
WPT Season XI Grand Prix de Paris Final Table Seat Player Chips 1 Matt Salsberg 1,920,000 (48 BBs) 2 Philipp Gruissem 2,270,000 (56 BBs) 3 Theo Jorgensen 2,655,000 (66 BBs)

Jorgensen’s advantage is nice, but not that confortable to make him think this will be one more title to join on his curriculum. None of these finalists will sell his chips easily, and, at this point, a hand misplayed can change everything at the rank.

I always see stuff about these Saturday or Sunday night poker on FOX,...and I have TWO FOX channels in my cable package,......and I NEVER get any of these televised games....
On NBC too for that matter... I get 2 NBC channels too, and NO poker....!
There was something on there on FOX a few years ago where sometime during the broadcast they revealed a secret password for a freeroll on PokerStars,...but that went 'dans la toilet' after Black Friday...
It was an easy win playing with all the poker newcomers...
