A Familiar Face in a Familiar Place; Jorgensen Still Leads

Shamus
Theo Jorgensen, from Day 6

Theo Jorgensen of Copenhagen, Denmark began Day 7 with the chip lead, and has already added some to his stack here in the early going. Jorgensen has been out in front at the end of tournaments quite a bit lately, as his 2010 Main Event follows a series of impressive recent performances.

After accumulating several big cashes in Europe, Jorgensen has become a familiar face here at the WSOP over the past few years, making four final tables in preliminary events since 2007. He's also had significant success over at the WSOPE in London, where he final tabled the Main Event there in 2007 (finishing eighth), and won a bracelet in 2008 in the £5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event.

And in May of this year, Jorgensen won his first World Poker Tour title, taking down the €10,000 Grand Prix de Paris. That recent strong finish may serve him well today as he tries preserve a good chip position moving into the latter stages of the tourney.
