24 players paid the buy-in of €20,000 and entered the High Roller tournament at WPT Paris last weekend. The field included notables such as the american poker legend Freddy Deeb, Kristoffer Thorsson from Sweden and probably the hottest player in the poker world right now, Sorel Mizzi. Freddy Deeb reached the final table second in chips and managed to stay there all the way to heads up against Sorel Mizzi.
Sorel Mizzi had a massive chip lead and probably no one thought that Deeb could win the tournament. However, 2 all ins changed everything and suddenly Deeb was the big favorite to win. Sorel Mizzi was a bit shocked after this and more or less gave up. It didn't take long before Deeb grabbed the first place prize of €290,000.
"I cannot believe I came back, he kept making me call, but I changed my game and got a bit of a break." said Deeb after the win.
