World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris Day 3: Ostennson Leads Field into the Money

World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris Day 3: Ostennson Leads Field into the Money 0001

It was a short Day 3 in Paris for the World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris as play went from 48 to 25, with the final 27 all finishing in the money. Making the most of a day that was short on time and hands because of a long hand-for-hand session on the bubble, Jimmy Ostennson finished the day with 719,000.

Ostennson won a significant number of chips by eliminating Aussie Millions champion Tyron Krost. The board read {J-Hearts} {8-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} and Krost had been set all-in by Ostennson for about 170,000. When Krost finally called, Ostensson showed him the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} for the nut flush. Then Krost mucked and tapped the table, saying he had pocket jacks for a set.

Theo Jorgensen also had a big day and was very active on the bubble and whittled the field to 27 by knocking out British pro Stuart Rutter. In an all-in preflop situation, Jorgensen, who had continually been raising on Rutter's immediate right, open-shoved with {a-Clubs} {5-Clubs} but was called by Rutter who held {9-Spades} {9-Diamonds}. "Why are you getting up?" someone asked Rutter as he got up from the table and backed away.

When the flop came down {Q-Clubs} {K-Clubs} {6-Clubs}, Rutter sighed "That's why," as the inconsequential turn and river came {J-Diamonds} and {7-Spades}.

Also sitting pretty as play charges toward a final table are Arnaud Mattern, day 1 chip leader Fabrice Tuil, French super star Patrick Bruel, Steven van Zadelhoff, and Andrew Teng.

Play continues Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Aviation Club as the players will work down to a final table of eight. Follow all the coverage live right here at PokerNews .
