Ring Event #8 PLO High Roller 8-Max Commences at World Series of Poker Circuit Rozvadov

The World Series of Poker Circuit which is currently taking place in the King’s Casino has transformed Rozvadov, the Czech Republic into the heart of poker action in Europe. With its numerous Ring events, it guarantees that the interest towards participation will continue throughout the rich schedule spanning over the month of March. This Wednesday saw the start of two more WSOPC Ring tournaments, one of which already granted its winner with the coveted piece of jewellery.

The first event of the day was a one-day tournament which goes by the name of Bounty Hunter and features a buy-in amounting to €660. In the said participation fee, there is a €200 Bounty included which is necessary for the event structure. As many as 115 players made their way to this event and registered for participation, ready to demonstrate their poker skills on the felt. Following an untimely elimination, some 33 of them opted for a re-entry which is available within the structure of the event.

This is how all participants had the chance to play for a slice of the prize pool which amounted to €54,760. Only the top 15 players on the official leader board deserved a part of it and this was all the motivation they needed to showcase their poker skills. The big champion is a well-known name at the poker tables at King’s Casino, as he was one of the top players this week. Valentin Schuler claimed the throne in this event which comes with a WSOPC Ring and a payout amounting to some €14,101.

High Accomplishments of the Top Players

It could be recalled that the throne at the Monday Daily No-Limit Hold’em event was claimed by him and he received the big prize of €1,253 following a deal with the runner-up and the third-place players. It is safe to say that this week is a strong one for the player from Germany and there are still many tournaments to come. The second ring event is going to last for two days and this Thursday will see its final table taking place. This is the long-anticipated Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller 8-Max which will grant the eighth ring in the Spring Festival.

The buy-in for participation in this poker tournament amounts to some €2,000, which guarantees generous payouts at the end of the final table and on the way there. As many as 43 players registered and reserved their spot at one of the poker tables which could guarantee them the big cashes. This first day of action also resulted in 13 re-entries, but at the end of the day, only 25 of the initial number of players managed to survive the rivalry for the big win. At the moment the chip leader among the remaining players is Martin Kabrhel, who managed to amass some 127,800 in chips.

His name is familiar to the most attentive poker enthusiast from his performance at the Monster Stack event, when he was the leader in Day 1a with the largest amount of chips and maintained his leading position throughout all of the starting flights and well into the Redraw Day 2 when he was eliminated. This is his second chance to make his way closer to the cash payouts and potentially to bag the coveted WSOPC Ring.
