Frenchman Jonathan  Khalifa whizzed through the field in the last WPTDeepstacks. The PMU.fr WPTDeepStacks Cannes €1,200 Main Event awarded a top prize of €60,157 and the result was Khalifa’s best live tournament score.

 

Khalifa had to navigate through a super-tough final table including former French Player of the Year and Team PMU.fr Pro Erwann Pecheux, Antonin Teisseire and Gilbert Diaz. Khalifa’s prize also came with a €2,000 seat into the season-ending WPTDeepStacks European Championship event.
