WPT Paris: Gruissem Leads final 24
The story unfolding at WPT Grand Prix de Paris is much the same as yesterday Phillip Gruissem still leads. But, a lot happened on Day 3, the field was reduced from 63 to 24 and with 27 players getting paid which means that the bubble has burst.
The unlucky player sent tumbling out in 28th was Frenchman Antony Lellouche and it was a total cooler. He had pocket kings but ran them into Bryan Colinís pocket aces. A jack high board meant everyone was in the money. Three players would bust before the end of the day with Jason Mercier, Sean Jazayeri and Giacomo Fundaro all exiting in the money for Ä13,305.
When all was said and done Gruissem was the only player to bag a seven figure stack (1,060,000), his nearest challenger is Matt Salsberg (951,000) whilst thereís then a massive drop off to Idris Ambraisse (591,000). With the blinds starting at 3,000 Ė 6,000 ante 1,000 thatís a huge gap. Among the other remaining players are 2010 Grand Prix de Paris champion Theo Jorgensen, reigning WPT Player of the year Joe Serock and Juha Helppi. Action gets underway at 2pm BST.
