Mohamed Iche Triumphs in the 2024 WSOP-C Paris €1,200 Main Event

Mohamed Iche has been crowned the champion of the 2024 WSOP-C Paris €1,200 Main Event at Stade Jean-Bouin after 12 hours of intense play. Iche secured his first WSOP circuit ring and took home the first-place prize of €150,000. This victory comes on the heels of a second-place finish in the €550 WSOP-C Cup, where he earned €30,288.

Iche faced Jonathan Bonnin in a relatively short heads-up battle, entering with a chip lead and solidifying his victory with a hero call holding ace-high. Bonnin, who had recorded cashes totaling less than $4,000 before this event, will undoubtedly be consoled by his €93,248 prize for second place.

Final Day Recap

The final day began with 15 players competing for a share of the €1,064,448 prize pool. Moncef Karoui was the first to exit, falling to Yannick Fraysse’s overpair. Vincent Montes followed soon after.

The pace of eliminations slowed until Mustafa Al Sayegh‘s departure in 12th place, where he three-bet jammed into Abel Pruchon‘s dominating ace. Former champion Nicolas Noguera exited in 11th place, and the final table bubble burst when Franck Yau‘s AA were cracked by Pruchon’s AK.

Abel Pruchon started the final table with a significant chip lead, swiftly eliminating Yannick Fraysse, Mallory Frere, and Sergio Pinto Teixeira to reduce the field from nine to seven.

Clement Delacroix eliminated Rayane Bouibeb in sixth place, while Olivier Armougon’s pocket queens earned him a big double up vs. Pruchon and he took the chip lead after that.

Iche, who had been playing conservatively, ramped up his aggression with four players remaining. He benefited from Bonnin doubling through Armougon, which stopped Armougon’s momentum. Pruchon eventually exited in fourth place after running into Bonnin’s pocket nines.

A key moment for Iche came when he busted Armougon in third place. Holding 56, Iche turned a straight against Armougon’s second pair and turned flush draw. The money went in on the turn, and the river bricked, sending Armougon to the rail.

In the heads-up battle, Iche’s hero call with ace-high against Bonnin’s bluff was crucial. Iche called with A3 on a board reading 75248, correctly reading Bonnin’s J9 as a bluff. Shortly after, Iche rivered an ace to confirm his ace-high holding over Bonnin’s jack-high, sealing the victory.
