Ship it to Lucas Z! The latest stop on the international poker tour included another poker series at the King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The partypoker MILLIONS series continued with the partypoker MILLIONS EUROPE. It's been a weird and wild series. Even Tony G won an event. Turkey's Orpen Kisacikoglu took down the Super High Roller last week. And now, we have a champion in the Main Event.
The anchor event at the partypoker MILLIONS EUROPE had a 10K buy-in. The Main Event attracted 504 players and a prize pool worth €5M. Only the top 72 places paid out of the juicy prize pool in RozVegas.
Charlie Carrel bagged the chip lead at the end of Day 3. The British pro could not go the distance at the final table. He was one of the first players to hit the bricks on Day 4.
Jozsef Liszkovic bubbled the final table in ninth place. The final table of eight included three players from the Czech Republic... Rastislav Paleta, Josef Snejberg, and Lucas Zaskodny. A trio of British pros were in the mix including the one and only Sam Grafton, partypoker pro Roberto Romanello, and Charlie Carrel. Severin Schleser was the lone rep from Austria, while pro Romain Lewis also went deep in this event as the last French player standing.
Rastislav Paleta busted first, while Charlie Carrel got picked off in seventh place. partypoker pro Roberto Romanello's run ended in sixth place, which paid out €170K.
Sam Graffton, the last Brit standing, bid his farewell in fifth place which paid out €220K
Austria's Severin Schleser busted in fourth place, which was worth a $333,000 USD or €300K in local currency.
Romain Lewis found himself in a three-way battle with a pair of Czech players. Lewis bounced in third place, which paid out a heady €420K and then some.
Facing escalating blinds and shallow stacks, the final two players decided to chop the remaining prize money. Josef Snejberg lost heads up but took home €718,230 as terms of the deal. Not too shabby, eh?
Meanwhile, Lucas Zaskodny knocked out Snejberg heads up to win the title and a first place prize worth €906,770. That's also a cool million in Yankee bucks.
