Peter Jorgne finishes in the 2nd position (€780,100)

Peter Jorgne is the runner-up at the EPT Paris 2023 ME for a payday of €780,100. The prestigious ME title goes to Razvan Belea along with the heay-duty prize money of €1,170,000.

At Level 35, blinds 200K/400K, big blind ante 400K, Razvan Belea (7 6 ) raised to 800,000 and his heads-up rival Peter Jorgne (T 6 ) spent some time thinking about his move.  Jorgne made the call. The flop brought Ts 5s 3c which means Jorgne had top pair and Belea had a gutshot. Jorgne checks and then his opponent bets 600,000 to which Jorgne responds with a check-raise of 1,500,000.

Belea makes the call and spikes 4 on the turn which means he now has a straight. Jorgne throws 2,600,000 into the pot which makes Belea use two time banks. But the Romanian raises the bet to 5,600,000 and Jorgne followed his rivals footsteps to use the time bank. Jorgne matches the bet with 9,325,000 behind.

The river presents 4 which sees the Swedish player move all-in. Belea enquired about the exact sum. He said, “I don’t think I can fold this one.” Belea made the call and a few seconds later Jorgne said, “Congratulations.”
