Thorsten Schuler Claims Ring #4 at World Series of Poker Circuit Spring Festival

King’s Casino located in Rozvadov near the border of the Czech Republic is one of the most discussed poker locations throughout the year, but especially at the moment, as the World Series of Poker Circuit has its Spring Festival there and brings big prizes and rings for everyone showcasing their superb poker skills on the felt. This Saturday brought the fourth Ring Event which was a Pot Limit Omaha High-Low one, as well as riveting development at the Redraw Final Day of the Monster Stack tournament.

Starting with the brand new champion, Ring Event #4 brought exciting Saturday poker action to Thorsten Schuler from Germany who participated in the tournament and made it to the throne where he was granted some €7,561 as well as one of the coveted WSOPC Rings which everyone is looking forward to receiving. The Pot Limit Omaha High-Low tournament featured a buy-in amounting to €300 and every participant had to begin their run towards the top with 25,000 in chips.

As many as 88 players expressed their intent to participate in the poker tournament, while 23 of them opted for a second chance of poker action after they had been busted by one of their rivals for the big win. In turn, the enthusiasm of the players granted the top 13 players on the official leader board with a prize pool amounting to €28,471 which they had to work hard for. The runner-up position was claimed by Maksim Mutalapov from the Russian Federation, who could not outplay the champion and received a total of €5,253 for his deep run in the tournament.

Poker Action and Payouts

The third place was reserved for Piotr Pietrych from Poland who also played impressively well and was granted some €3,474 for his performance during the Ring event. While this poker action was taking place, the Monster Stack Event which also boasts a WSOPC Ring as the big trophy, progressed ahead.

Most of the players were granted generous payouts on their way out and the prize pool paid up to this point amounts to €248,900. The first player to receive a payout from the Monster Stack event was Karolis Vekelis from the Netherlands, who finished 55th and for this received some €1,220 following the money bubble burst.

The player who also fell short from the final day of action which will take place on 12th March was Konig Lukas J. Rolf from Germany who claimed the 16th spot on the official leader board of the event. This brought him €2,713 for his deep run in the poker event and also cleared the way for the remaining 15 players willing to claim the big prizes. For the time being the chip leader is Cohen Yehuda who has 4,220,000. He claimed third place at the Senior Event where his excellent performance brought him €2,214.
