After a Final Table of just over six hours, it was the only foreigner who won: the Online Casino Malaysia, who succeeded the Canadian Patrick Braga, won the FPS Deauville 2023 champion trophy on Sunday January 26th.
The show will have been there for the epilogue of this Season 3 of the France Poker Series. We were able to witness a short, intense and violent head-to-head turnaround with the 49-year-old recreational player invited by his son Jean-Paul Vasseur. The main tournament €1,000 + €100 Pokerstars France Poker Series (FPS) Deauville attracted 1,095 players for a prize pool of over one million euros!
The ranking of the TF of the FPS Deauville 2023 (1095 players – 1100€)
For the Moroccan Fahd Kaabat, galvanized by his conquest of the Deepstack Open a few weeks ago in Paris, the latter must be satisfied this time with an 8th place.
Erwann Pecheux meanwhile signed a 6th place which confirms the trend started at the end of 2023. The PMU Poker player is definitely in great shape!
Qualified for €100 on PokerStars.fr, Christophe Leroux, accompanied in the stands by a good twenty of his friends and families who made the short trip from the neighboring village of Trouville, will lose in 5th position, with €45,000 in his pocket all the same, facing the intractable Dutch.
Yehoram Houri took a fine 3rd place for €82,100 when Jean-Paul Vasseur flopped a full house in disguise. Yehoram will have shared his good mood during these four days of competition on all the tables visited, accompanied in the stands by many faithful Cercle Cadet, such as Mousstyk (double Champion of France Online) and Julien Sitbon (Finalist FPS Paris 2023).
Make way for the EPT and see you for Season 4 of the France Poker Series next April on the Riviera!

Gus Hansen is a superstar in the poker world. But after making headlines all over the poker boom thanks to his phenomenal tournament results, today it’s because of his colossal losses of $16.4 million lost to date on Full Tilt, and this “prevents him from sleeping”.About Gus Hansen
Gus “The Great Dane” Hansen was born Gustav Hansen on February 13, 1974 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Before becoming a professional poker player in 1997, Gus Hansen was a world-class backgammon player and junior tennis champion.
Gus Hansen is now a TV poker star, having participated in numerous shows such as “High Stakes Poker”, “Professional Poker Tour” or “Poker After Dark”, and he is the number 1 in Denmark of the famous ” All Time Money List”.
In 2023, he was voted one of the sexiest men alive by People Magazine.
With regard to poker
Sponsored by Full Tilt, Gus Hansen is known for his atypical style involving significant risk taking. His tournament results are among the most impressive: he is the only player to have won three World Poker Tour tournaments. He even won the Poker Superstars which brings together the best players in the world.
He was one of the first to be included in the World Poker Tour Walk of Fame in 2023, along with players Doyle Brunson and James Garner.
How is a loss of 16 million possible for a professional?
Gus constantly tries to play against players like Viktor Blom, Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn or SallyWoo, who are only beatable in the long run by only a handful of people in the world and against whom it is practically impossible to be a winner with consistency.
