On Sunday, the Danish Team PokerStars Pro The Jorgensen was shot three times in the leg by robbers who forced their way into his house in Greve, Denmark and demanded money. Jorgensen's wife, who had to watch helplessly as her husband was shot multiple times, called the police, who searched the house and the neighbourhood with dogs, but no one has been arrested yet.
Theo Jorgensen's is hospitalized but is not believed to have life-threatening injuries. In fact, he had the strength to talk about the robbery on Facebook yesterday:
"Dear all, it is important for me to stress that I am a cautious man. I have prepared myself mentally and practically that this situation could occur, in order to protect myself and my family against outsiders. I know that the outsiders may have a misguided perception of how much cash I have in my home. I have alarm systems installed, always try to have as little cash as possible laying around in my house and generally taken my precautions. But unfortunately it has proved not to be enough.
Under the circumstances, I'm feeling okay. Now my main focus will be on taking care of my family so we can get through this."
Theo Jorgesen's very thankful for all the support he and his family have received...
"Overwhelmed by the support we have recieved thru facebook and texts. Dont know if I have to blame the morfin or all your thoughts but very touched. Guess Fort Knox had to be build anyway so on the case even though I will have absolutly nothing of money value in the house. To bad it had to be like that but cant risk the most valuable thing I have one more time. We are all better than expected and looking forward," he wrote on Facebook.
