The final day's table sorted through an initial 228 players. The following players plus their chip totals leading up to that final table were as follows: Matt Salsberg 1,757,000; Mohsin Charania 1,435,000; Timothy Adams 1,198,00; Theo Jorgensen 1,169,000; Philipp Gruissem 776,000 and Fabian Quoss 570,000.
Danish champion Theo Jorgensen was initially the underdog, but that soon changed when he took the chip lead by winning a colossal hand against Timothy Adams. Jorgensen adeptly leveraged his lead as he advanced through the field and then came up against Salsberg with only a minimal lead.
Jorgensen expanded his lead over Salsberg as the final game proceeded, and it appeared that Jorgensen would take the game with a 4-to-1 advantage, but then Salsberg doubled, continued to build impetus until he regained the chip lead, and with deftness was able to overtake Jorgensen.
The Euro 400,000 First-Place is Salsberg's biggest career earning thus far, surpassing his previous top prize of $100,000.
The Grand Prix de Paris score for Salsberg also secured him a $25,000 seat in the World Poker Tour World Championship in May 2013.
