Déjà vu at the WPT Paris High-Roller tournament
At the World Poker Tour’s stop in Paris last year the €15,000 buy-in High-Roller tournament came down to a heads-up battle between 2010 BLUFF Magazine Player of the Year Sorel Mizzi and long-time poker pro Freddy Deeb, with the veteran Deeb able to dispatch the young Canadian poker pro. At the 2011 WPT Paris High-Roller tournament the two were once again amongst the 36 entrants and history would almost repeat itself.
Mizzi and Deeb once again found themselves playing heads-up for the title and the €234,000, but this time it was Mizzi who would come out victorious, tweeting to his followers, “Winner winner chicken dinner ship the 234,495 euros n the trophy! Revenge is sweet! Freddy plyed gr8 http://t.co/DsUSHff”
The final hand was one you don’t see too often during heads-up play, with Deeb holding A/J and Mizzi A/A. Not only did all of the money not go in pre-flop (quite rare in itself considering A/J is a powerhouse hand heads-up) but a J-x-x flop sealed Deeb’s fate and handed the title to Mizzi.
Here is a look at the five players who cashed in the High-Roller tournament at the 2011 WPT Grand Prix de Paris:
1. Sorel Mizzi — €234,495
2. Freddy Deeb — €130,275
3. Nichlas Matsson — €78,165
4. Jerome Zerbib — €52,110
5. Christopher Lastiwka — €26,055
Most of the poker world will now be moving on to the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event in Cannes.
