WSOPC Main Event Progresses towards Final Day Poker Action

King’s Casino located in Rozvadov is currently experiencing the riveting poker game called Main Event which brings out big cashes to its players. The World Series of Poker Circuit has its Spring Festival in progress which has finally reached its culmination event and this Monday is scheduled to see the official final table of the event. The official chip leader at this point was Martin Kabrhel who is a well-known local player.

Last Friday saw the official start of the Main Event with the first starting flight which saw the leadership of Alexander Romme from Germany, who managed to generate some 310,500 in chips at the end of the poker action. The interest towards the event was one of the largest in the poker festival so far, as there were a total of 241 players willing to enter the first flight towards the final table. Of course, the poker action did not go without some hitches and there were 21 re-entries of people, who were eliminated way too soon.

Poker Players throughout the Days

Saturday brought Day 1B of the Main Event and this time there were even more people willing to take part in the culminating poker tournament. A total of 396 players entered the run towards the final table and the throne which added more cash to the total prize pool which will be shared among the top positions on the leader board.

There were also 84 re-entries of players who were eliminated from the big run sooner than expected. As for the chip leader, Germany’s Markus Sturz reached the top spot at the unofficial leader board and bagged a total of 368,700 in chips.

This meant that he dominated the overall field at that point. Eyal Bensimhon also held his high spot and returned as the third place player at the Redraw Day 2 with his chip stack amounting to 250,500 in chips. There were also players who had to leave the poker race closer to the final day and the first one to be in the money was Andreas Michelmann from Germany who received the smallest payout in the Main Event reaching €3,857.

Bensimhon was also left at the 53rd place on the official leader board which brought him €4,651, but he had the potential to go far in the culminating tournament since he managed to outplay all of his rivals for the big win at the €220 Deep Stack Open. Sturz also had to leave as he was eliminated at the 33rd position and this granted him €5,331. This Monday will see the official final day of action as well as the final table. The current chip leader Kabrhel has 2,235,000 to his name, which could potentially guarantee him the big win.

Stanislav Koleno from Slovakia is also present, with his 1,348,000 in chips. It could be recalled that the No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout event brought Koleno his big win bagging as much as €14,094 at the end of the final table and the coveted by many ring. The final day of action is guaranteed to bring all poker titans together for a clash which will determine the big winner.
