After intense Final Table battle Mohsin Charania scored his first-ever World Poker Tour title by claiming victory at the bwin WPT Grand Prix de Paris.
Vasili Firsau eliminated everyone before going heads up against Mohsin Charania with a 7:1 chip lead. Firsau was a 92% favourite to win the title in an all-in and call.
