Poker Fever Festival in Rozvadov Welcomes €100,000 GTD Poker Fever Cup Event

King’s Casino located in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic is one of the most discussed poker locations at the moment, as the PokerFever Festival continues with full throttle. This Sunday brought one skillful player to their first-place prize and the throne at the Opening Big Stack Event and that was Volkan Yertürk from Germany who received a total of €18,363 for his excellent performance at the premium poker tournament.

Over the span of four days, all poker players willing to give their luck a try had the chance to enter the first major event of the poker festival and this gave them the opportunity to meet the rest of the enthusiasts and measure skills on the felt. With the help of the five starting flights, everyone had the chance to register for participation and enter the player field. The guaranteed prize pool was what attracted most of the players as it amounted to €100,000. In reality, after all was said and done, the prize pool which was paid to the top 63 players in the event amounted to some €95,000.

The minimal sum paid reached €404 and the first player to receive a cash prize from this tournament was Akgöl Irfan from Germany who entered the run towards the big cashed on Day 1d where he claimed the 10th spot at the rank list for that starting flight. The big winner claimed the trophy after a deal among the remaining three players on the felt which made it easier for the prize pool to be divided.

According to it, the winner had to bag some €12,582. It could be recalled that Yertürk was the chip leader at the end of Day 1b where he managed to generate a considerable amount of chips and reach a chip stack of 441,000 in chips.

Riveting Action on the Way to the Top

Back then he solidified his spot at the official Day 2 of the poker tournament, but what he did not know was that he is also making his way straight to the first place in this tournament. When it was time for the Redraw Final Day he was placed at the sixth position in comparison to the rest of the surviving players.

The runner-up position in this tournament was claimed by Yaunes Ouriaghli coming straight from Belgium to make his way all the way to the top spots. He was supposed to receive some €11,590 for his deep run, but after the deal, he bagged a total of €13,443. As for the third place it was claimed by Polish player Marek Janiszewski who also grabbed a fair share amounting to €12,241 for his good performance on the felt. Right after the end of this poker tournament, the Poker Fever Cup Day 1a commenced for five days of poker action.

The first starting flight attracted some 53 players to the tournament, but only 7 of them are going to meet again at the next stage of action. The buy-in for this tournament reaches €110 while the guaranteed prize pool boasts some €100,000, giving everyone an incentive to play. Day 1b which took place this Monday added as many as 56 players to the entries in the tournament, whereas only 19 of them progress ahead. This week is set to see the winner of this event.
