The World Series of Poker Europe continues at the King's Casino in RozVegas in the Czech Republic with the final week of action including the Main Event. A pair of high roller events concluded with two well-known high ballers winning their first-ever WSOP bracelets.

Paul Phua stepped into the winner's circle for the first time with an impressive victory in WSOP Europe Event #8 €25,000 Platinum High Roller. Several of the premier pros in the world took a shot at a high-end bling. The 67-entry pool generated a prize pool worth nearly €1.6 million. Only the top 11 places paid out with €482K set aside to the champ.

The final table of the €25K High Roller included Norway's Espen Jorstad, Finland's Eelis Parssinen, Wayne Heung from Hong Kong, Ben Heath from the UK, France's Julien Martini, Canadian-born Daniel Negreanu, New York's Shaun Deeb, Gab Yong Kim from South Korea, and Malaysia's Paul Phua.

Puha denied Negreanu another WSOPE bracelet when he came from behind to flop a set with pocket fours to sink Negreanu's pocket fives. Kid Poker hit the road in fourth place and missed out on a sixth WSOP bracelet.

Shaub Deeb missed out on winning Powerball with his lottery junta back in the States, but he also embarked on a deep run in the €25K High Roller. Deeb also missed out on another bracelet with a third-place finish.

It was Malaysia and South Korea battling for the €25K High Roller title. When the dust settled, Paul Phua knocked out Gab Yong Kim in second place. Gab Yong Kim banked €298K for a runner-up finish. Not too hobby, eh?

Paul Phua earned a first-place payday worth €482,433, but he really wanted to win his first bracelet, which many pros consider priceless... especially your first one.

The other high balla affair on the schedule concluded over the weekend with WSOPE Event #11 Diamond High Roller. The €50,000 buy-in event attracted 45 entrants and a prize pool that was a little more than €2.1 million. Only the final seven players at the final table walked away with a cut of the cashola.

Orpen Kisacikoglu represented Turkey at the €50K final table, which also included the UK's Sam Grafton, American pros Shaun Deeb and Nick Petrangelo, Canadian pros Timothy Adams and Daniel Dvoress, and Germany's Dan Pidin.

The Canadians were among the first players to bust among the final seven, but the Americans busted right behind each other. Nick Petrangelo finished in fourth place, while Shaun Deeb had a bit of deja vu in RozVegas with another third-place finish.

Sam Grafton and Orpen Kisacikoglu were the last two players alive and the €50K High Roller came down to a battle of Turkey and the UK. Grafton could not slow down Kisacikoglu, and he was picked off in second place which paid out €462K.

Ship it to Turkey! Kisacikoglu slapped a shiny new bracelet on his wrist and padded his bankroll with a €748,106 score. He passed the $10 million mark with his victory at the King's Casino. He's the all-time tournament money winner in Turkey poker history.
