The popular WPTDeepStacks tour has crowned a new champion with Gregory Luttke-Grech winning the latest Main Event of the tour in Viago Grand Casino Brussels. The Frenchman won the €1,200 Main Event for €102,000 after defeating a 482-player field. Lutte-Grech was the star of the day, eliminating five of the seven finalists single-handily to claim the trophy.
Runner-up was Sonny Franco, who’s closing in on the $2M lifetime winnings mark with his second-place prize of €65,000, according to The Hendon Mob. The heads-up with Luttke-Grech lasted just 12 minutes after Franco flopped top pair, only to run into Luttke-Grech’s pocket aces. Paul Pires-Trigo rounded out the podium with a prize of €48,000.
With the win, Luttke-Grech continues on a highly successful year with already his 7th win of 2019. The €102K won in Brussels was by far the biggest of the bunch, eclipsing his previous lifetime best by four times. After his victory, Luttke-Grech explained to WPT on what changed for him in 2019.
"I have lived in Tunisia for 18 months, maybe it’s working for me. A better lifestyle, maybe."
"I am here for the win," he explained his motivations. "I’m very happy for my friends that they will get a good share."
