Danish Poker Star Shot And Robbed At Home

Theo Jorgensen Shot Three Times In Legs In Home Invasion


Well-known poker pro Theo Jorgensen as been shot and robbed at his home in Denmark.

The 40-year old World Poker Tour and World Series of Poker winner was shot three times in the leg by the English speaking home invaders in front of his wife.

He is believed to have handed over the cash he had in the house, a five figure sum in Danish Kroner.

Jorgensen is currently recovering in hospital and police are looking for three men, 170cm to 180 cm in height and average build.

Poker players such as Vanessa Selbst were quick to take to Twitter to offer their sympathies to Jorgensen:


Jorgensen updated his Facebook page with a message around lunchtime Monday (using Google Translate):

“Dear all

It is important for me to emphasize that I am a cautious man. I have prepared myself mentally and practically that this situation could arise to protect myself and my family against outsiders. I know that the outsiders may have a mistaken idea of how much cash I have in my home. I have alarm systems installed, always so get cash lying as possible and generally taken my precautions. It has so unfortunately proved not to be enough.

I have it under circumstances well, and right now I want to focus on taking care of my family, so we can get through this."
