WSOP Circuit Monster Stack Ring #2 Event Generates €373,825 Prize Pool

The poker world is preparing to welcome yet another champion worthy of one of the coveted WSOPC Rings coming with the first-place prize of the Monster Stack Event. A total of 787 entries made their way into the poker tournament, but there would be only one of them reaching as far as the throne. David Taborsky claimed the chip leading position at the redraw phase of the event with some 4,880,000 in chips.

There is nothing more exciting than the stage of a poker event which sees all participants surviving following the extensive and tough starting flight. This is when true professionals on the felt have the chance to reunite for one last push towards the big cashes. Through showcasing their skills they are able to reach far on the official leader board and bedazzle their name with the champion title.

Ring Event Number Two Reaches Final Phase

The third starting flight of this event witnessed a total of 194 players registering for participation, further elevating the total prize pool of the event. At the end of the registration period of this tournament, it amounted to some €373,825. Some 39 of them opted for their re-entry option, providing them with the chance to once again make it in.

At the end of this third day of heated poker action, Israeli poker player Sergei Boreiko managed to climb all the way to the top of the unofficial rank list, bagging a total of 447,000 in chips. Saturday’s action also brought another renown poker pro, Stanislav Koleno from Slovakia to King’s Casino’s poker room.

He was striving to add a third WSOPC Ring to his collection but had to bid farewell to his dreams at least when it comes to this event. Only 166 players progressed ahead following the 40-minute levels. As for the fourth and final starting flight, it transformed Sunday into a heated poker frenzy by introducing some 248 players to the overall player field of this event.

When all was said and done, Christopher Puetz climbed all the way to the top with a bagful of 561,500. This ranked him first among the surviving player field and as it turned out motivated him to reach new heights by ranking second among the 20 players progressing towards Day 3 of the poker tournament.

Petr Hlavacek was the player who claimed the minimum cash payout for this event, reaching the 79th place. The local player added some €1,271 for his deep run in this tournament, bursting the money bubble.

Renown Players Showcase Skills

Another promising participant, Ion Tabacaru from Romania also failed to reach further than the 55th spot and this brought him a sweet payday of €1,533. Now the event is at that point when only 20 participants are set to meet once again for the last battle and measure skills.

If there are no deals arranged towards the end of the Final Table, payouts for the top positions shall remain at their current state. The winner would receive not only the coveted WSOPC Ring but also as much as €71,737 for their deep run in the event.

Consolation prize currently amounts to €45,009, considerably less than the lion’s share, but still a motivation enough for players to strive to reach far. This Monday would see more poker action in the picturesque town of Rozvadov as the remaining 20 players take their seats once again.
