Ship it to Marty Kabrhel! If there's a big-time tournament at the King's Casino in Rozvadov, there's a good chance Martin Kabrhel will be lurking at the final table. At the 2017 WSOP Europe, Kabrhel took down his first bracelet. Last year, at the 2019 WSOP Europe in RozVegas, Kabrhel won his second bracelet when he binked the €100K Super High Roller for €2.6 million.
Coming into this week, Marty also won four WSOP Circuit rings. He earned his fifth with a victory in the WSOPIC Main Event. The Czech pro now has a ring for every finger. He passed $8 million in tournament earnings and no other players has won more money from the Czech Republic than Kabrhel.
It was no surprise to see Marty Kabrhel at the final table of the WSOP International Circuit Main Event at the swanky Kings Casino in RozVegas. The €1,700 buy-in Main Event attracted 650 total runners. The total prize pool was €1.1 million. Only the top 71 places paid out.
Only 23 players remained on the final day. They played all the way down to a champion. The final table of eight included Raz Alon, Dan Smiljkvic, Martin Mulsow, Robert Skopalik, Andreas Heider, Jakub Oliva, Harry Ross and Martin Kabhrel. Everyone at the final table locked up a WSOP Europe Main Event ticket. Yeah, they got a freeroll to the WSOPE. Pretty cool, eh?
Raz Alon from Israel hit the road in eighth place. Germany's Daniel Smiljkovic held the chip lead early in the event and managed to get as far as the final table, but he hit the bricks in seventh place. Martin Mulsow busted in sixth place, followed by local player Robert in fifth place.
There were three Germans at the final table. The last one went as far as fourth place when Andreas Heider made a valiant stand in fourth place.
With three to go, one British player -- Harry Ross -- found himself up against a pair of Czechs. Jakub Oliva got picked off in third place. He took home €80,000.
Ross found himself n the unfortunate position and iheads-up with the greatest player in the history of Czech poker. Ross couldn't pull off a sick comeback against the Godfather. The Brit bounced in second place, which paid out €110,000. Not too shabby for a runner-up share, eh?
Martin Kabrhel banked €190,000 for first place. He won another circuit ring. He now has five overall, plus a pair of bracelets. That's a lot fo bling for the dominant Czech. It's tough to beat Marty K on his home turf. Everyone in the Main Event found out the hard way.
Dan Nielsen busted in tenth place Pa van Oort was out in 11th place. Other notable eliminations included Alexandre Viard, Pascal Roumier, Chris Putz, Simone Agnoletto, Xiaozhe Liu, Eil Bise, Roman Mikus, Pierre Fromage, Petr Setka, Dragoljub Martinovic, Johannes Herbers, Robert Laux, and Dan Bitsch.
