Martin Kabrhel has recently been crowned as the champion of the WSOP International Circuit Rozvadov €1,700 Main Event where he bested a field of 650 entries and walked away with €190,000, a World Series of Poker Europe Main Event ticket as well as his fifth WSOP Circuit Ring.
Before the WSOP International Circuit Rozvadov €1,700 Main Event win, the poker pro’s previous wins included four rings and two bracelets, all of which were won at the King’s Resort in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic. It also happens to be the second biggest win of his tournament poker career but it will still be worth as it will take him over the $8 million mark in live tournament cashes.
A Break Down of the Final Day Action
Following a few big pots and massive showdowns that came in after the all-ins and calls that came in that day, the unofficial final table started with an average of 36 big blinds – however, only three players including Jakub Oliva and Martin Kabrhel had more than this average. Kabrhel and Oliva claimed more than double the average after claiming most of the eliminations to their belt.
The final table action began with just eight players left before Alon busted with pocket nines against the tens of Kabhrel. After this, there was a short period of quietness which was partly attributed to the 30-minute dinner break in between. About two hours after Alon has busted, Smilijkovic was unable to win against Kabrhel with his pocket kings – the final blow on the player was dealt by Kabrhel when his ace-deuce found a deuce on the flop and an ace on the turn.
The next casualties were Martin Muslow, Robert Skopalik, and Andreas Heider. Oliva was subsequently forced to the third place after he was almost pushed to go all-in on the big blind – he called Kabrhel’s bet on the river with his last remaining chips with two pair. However, this was miscalculated as Kabrhel’s flush as good.
The heads-up action between Kabrhel and Ross, the last two remaining players did not last as long with the former closing out the tournament for his fifth ring.
