When WPT Grand Prix de Paris: Part 3 airs this Sunday at 8pm and 11pm local time on FSN viewers will get to see more of local hero and French amateur Frederic Magen.
As one of the final four at the WPT Grand Prix de Paris final table, Frederic has already accomplished more than most amateur poker players. The fact that he is doing it at his home casino (the casino where he works, while still working there) adds a whole different level to his success at this event so far. Working the morning shift and playing in the afternoons, Magen battled through the field of 312 entrants to rack up his first WPT cash and then his first WPT final table.
Frederic has a handful of live tournament cashes under his belt, but the money he is guaranteed to win at this point is 20 times more than his largest previous cash, which came at the 2009 Paris Open of Poker for €8,600. See if Frederic can continue his run and defeat fellow Frenchman Hugo Lemaire and the two Americans Byron Kaverman and Matt Waxman to become the next poker player to have their name etched on the WPT Champions Cup.
All of the action takes place this Sunday at 8pm and 11pm local time on FSN, so make sure to tune in or set your DVR so you don’t miss a moment.
