  1. [caption width="640"] William Kassouf took down a big birthday payday (Image c/o PokerStars)[/caption] William Kassouf decided to celebrate his birthday, well, like a boss. The British poker pro took down the last-ever European Poker Tour High Roller Event after a heads-up deal with Patrick Serda. Kassouf put his table talk to good use, negotiating a heads-up chop where he took home a little over €530,000 but got the trophy and the winner photo in addition to credit as the winner. Patrick Serda took home €719,000 for second place. He may have wheeled and dealed his way to the win once it got to heads-up, but Kassouf certainly played a ton of poker to earn the win. The €10,300 buy-in High Roller drew a record-setting field of 407, resulting in an almost €4 million prize pool. When play began on the third and final day of the event, 24 players remained and Kassouf was near the bottom of the counts. He doubled up more than once to survive in the early goings. By the time the final table rolled around, Kassouf was one of the big stacks at the table. At the final table, Kassouf and Serda battled back and forth for the honor of big stack. Serda surpassed Kassouf when he eliminated Jens Lakemeier in eighth place. Lakemeier shoved all-in on the river of an [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9s"] board and Serda called with [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] for aces up and Lakemeier could only show a small pair and a busted draw. Kassouf took a chunk out of Serda, but Serda clawed back in contention when he eliminated Grzegorz Wyraz in sixth place, calling Wyraz’s all-in preflop shove holding [poker card="as"][poker card="7h"] to Wyraz’s [poker card="5c"][poker card="6c"]. Serda continued to plow through the competition, calling Paul Leckey’s three-bet shove with [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"] to Leckey’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="3s"]. His superior ace held up and the field was down to four with Serda way out front with more than double his next closest competitor, Kassouf. That lead got bigger after Viliyan Petleshkov was eliminated in fourth place. He ran pocket deuces into Serda’s pocket eights to exit. Serda was up to 13 million after that and picked up his fourth KO of the final table. With three players remaining, talks of a chop began, but Tue Ullerup Hansen wasn’t swayed by the ICM numbers and declined, willing to take his 3 million and change up against Serda’s 14 million and Kassouf’s 2.5 million. Kassouf doubled through Ullerup Hansen to get him rather short, but Serda was the one to finish him off. Serda shoved on the button with [poker card="qs"][poker card="7c"] and Ullerup Hansen called holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"]. Serda hit a queen on the [poker card="qc"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="tc"][poker card="3s"] board to take the action to heads-up. Outchipped by more than a 4:1 margin, Kassouf opted to take less money than an ICM chop would pay and take the winner photo to finish out the last High Roller event in EPT history. Here are the final table results from the EPT Prague High Roller William Kassouf - €532,500* Patrick Serda - €719,000* Tue Ullerup Hansen - €351,000 Viliyan Petleshkov - €283,850 Paul Leckey - €224,600 Grzegorz Wyraz - €172,910 Matas Cimbolas - €128,700 Jens Lakemeier - €93,170 * denotes a heads-up deal
  2. Next up on the European Poker Tour schedule is EPT Prague. The event heads to Casino Atrium Prague at the Hilton Prague December 7-18, for a plentiful festival that includes 43 events. EPT Prague is anchored by the €5,300 Main Event running December 12-18 and the series will also award two Platinum Passes to the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship. In addition to the €5,300 Main Event, the EPT Prague schedule features the €1,100 buy-in EPT National event December 8-12, the €50,000 buy-in EPT Super High Roller December 10-12, and the €10,300 buy-in EPT High Roller December 16-18. Prague Known for Its Big Numbers EPT Prague is one of the European Poker Tour’s most iconic stops, and it never fails to deliver with impressive field sizes and large payouts. If you include the one-year rebranded PokerStars Championship Prague in 2017, the Prague Main Event has attracted 9,065 entries over the years and generated a total of €43.8 million in prize money. That’s an average field size of 824 entries and an average prize pool of nearly €4 million. The first-place prize has averaged nearly €750,000, too. France’s Arnaud Mattern was the first EPT Prague Main Event winner when he took the crown back in 2007, and other past winners include Roberto Romanello in 2010, Martin Finger in 2011, and Stephen Graner in 2014. Jasper Van Putten won the largest EPT Prague Main Event, topping a field of 1,192 entries in 2016 to win €699,300 after a heads-up deal was made with Marton Czuczor. Graner’s €969,000 prize from 2014 remains the largest first-place payout in EPT Prague Main Event history. The €10,300 buy-in High Roller has also been a favorite of players heading to Prague. First installed in 2010, this event has attracted a total of 1,584 entries and generated more than €16.6 million in prize money. The €1,100 buy-in National tournament is Prague’s best mid-tier offering and known to attract tons of players, with 9,746 entries across six years and a total of €9.45 million dished out. That’s an average field size of more than 1,600 runners. Two Platinum Pass Packages Up for Grabs EPT Prague will award two coveted Platinum Pass packages, valued at $30,000 each. The packages include a $25,000 entry into the PSPC tournament in the Bahamas in January 2019, six nights’ accommodation at the Atlantis Resort in Nassau, and $2,000 in travel expenses and room folio credit. Details on how to win a Platinum Pass during EPT Prague have yet to be released, but stay tuned to PocketFives.com for an update. The Czech Republic Capital Delivers Off the Felt, Too If you’re a fan of poker and the winter holiday season, there are few places better than Prague in the month of December for the EPT’s trip there. The city is absolutely beautiful at this time of year, dressed from head to toe in holiday garb with incredible sights and delicious treats to delight. For the adventurers out there, Prague has a few must-see attractions, starting with the Charles Bridge and Old Town Square. Taking a stroll across the 14th Century Charles Bridge is simply charming. It’s as picturesque as anywhere in the world and comes full of life. Prague’s Old Town Square has become a favorite of anyone who travels to EPT Prague. The historic streets are lined with restaurants and holiday vendors for you to grab a bite or a pint while listening to live music or enjoying one of the many street performers putting on a show. While you’re down in Old Town Square, make sure you check out the Prague Astronomical Clock. The medieval clock is the oldest astronomical clock in the world that is still in operation. As you continue to stroll around town, you may want to check out Prague Castle. It’s stunning and provides amazing views of the city.

  3. The last European Poker Tour event of 2018 wrapped up Tuesday in Prague with Germany's Paul Michaelis beating a final table that included a few well-known PocketFivers on his way to picking up €840,000 ($954,677) and a trip to the Bahamas to play in the $25,000 PokerStars Players Championship in January. The eight-handed final table began on Monday before stopping with six players left to return on Tuesday. It took just a few hands at the final table on Monday for the first elimination to happen. Diego Zeiter moved all in for 1,305,000 from middle position and Alexandr Merzhvinskii called. Zeiter tabled [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"] but got the worst news possible when Merzhvinskii turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="as"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2h"][poker card="qh"][poker card="td"] runout wasn't good enough to save Zeiter from an eighth place finish. It took only an hour before the next player was sent to the rail. From middle position, Laurynas Levinskas raised to 250,000 before Liviu Ignat moved all in from the button. Levinskas called and showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] while Ignat needed help after turning over [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="6d"] flop gave Ignat two extra outs but neither the [poker card="7c"] turn and [poker card="8s"] river were any help and he was sent out in seventh. The six remaining players bagged up their chips and returned on Tuesday to play down to a winner. A good night's rest didn't help Parker Talbot overcome his short stack though. Down to just 15 big blinds, Talbot moved all in from the cutoff only to have Levinskas call from the big blind and turn over [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] while Talbot was left drawing with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"] The [poker card="ah"][poker card="ad"][poker card="2c"] flop all but ended Talbot's run. The [poker card="ts"] turn gave him four outs to Broadway but the [poker card="kd"] river was no help and Talbot was out in sixth. Play continued for nearly 90 minutes before the next elimination occurred. Michaelis raised to 400,000 from UTG and Carlos Branco moved all in for 3,575,000 from the button. Artem Kobylynskyi re-raised all in from the big blind forcing Michaelis to fold. Branco showed [poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"] but Kobylynskyi had [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"]. The flop came [poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"] to give Branco six more outs. The turn was the [poker card="9s"] and the [poker card="8h"] river sealed his fate with a fifth place finish. The first talk of a chop came up with four players remaining but Levinskas decided he wanted to keep playing. About 30 minutes later, the decision was made for him. Michaelis raised to 425,000 from the button and Levinskas defended from the big blind. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"][poker card="7d"] flop got both players to check. The [poker card="8h"] turn got another check from Levinskas before Michaelis bet 400,000. Levinskas responded by moving all in and Michaelis called instantly. Levinskas showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] for top pair but Michaelis tabled [poker card="8c"][8s for a turned set. The [poker card="9d"] river was a useless second pair for Levinskas and he was eliminated in fourth. Three-handed play last a little over an hour before the three players agreed to a deal. Michaelis took €770,000, Merzhvinskii pocketed €631,500 while the shortest stack, Kobylinskiy, settled for €571,910 and they left €70,000 and the $30,000 Platinum Pass to play for. It took almost 90 minutes to go from a deal to heads-up. Merzhvinskii moved all in for his last 12 big blinds from the button and Michaelis called from the big blind. Merzhvinskii tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="7d"] but found his hand dominated by Michaelis' [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7h"] flop improved both players. The [poker card="8d"] turn and [poker card="th"] river changed kept everything the same and gave Michaelis the pot and eliminated Merzhvinskii in third. When heads up play began, Michaelis was ahead 2-1 over Kobylynskyi. It took just 15 minutes for Michaelis to finish things off thanks to a cooler. Michaelis called from the button and then called again after Kobylynskyi moved all in for 5,600,000. Kobylynskyi showed [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"] but Michaelis had him beat with [poker card="js"][poker card="jd"]. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="5s"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7d"] to give Michaelis the win and leave Kobylynskyi as runner-up. Final Table Payouts Paul Michaelis - $954,677 Artem Kobylynskyi - $649,987 Alexandr Merzhvinskii - $717,712 Laurynas Levinskas - $359,140 Carlos Branco - $275,674 Parker Talbot - $203,846 Liviu Ignat - $155,385 Diego Zeiter - $110,720
  4. The €10,300 EPT Prague High Roller came to a conclusion on Tuesday after a dominating final table performance by Denmark’s Henrik Hecklen propelled him to take home the €503,700 first-place prize and title of EPT High Roller Champion. Hecklen did the majority of the work at the final table himself, eliminating six of his final seven opponents. In the end, Hecklen secured his career-high live cash by besting one of Germany’s most formidable players in Ole Schemion in a lengthy heads-up match. Before that occurred, there was a tough final table that needed to be dealt with. With the elimination of Anton Yakyba in ninth place, the final eight players got down to the business of finishing off the final table. The first to fall was Australia’s Michael Addamo. After losing a big hand to Hecklen earlier, Addamo had been surviving on a short stack. The pair clashed again on Addamo’s final hand. Heckled opened with the [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"] and from the big blind, Addamo moved in holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"]. Heckling called and the Addamo needed to catch to survive. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"]94h], leaving Addamo drawing dead on the turn. He finished in eighth place for €63,310, his third cash of EPT Prague. Right behind Addamo, the Netherlands’ Jasper Meijer Van Putten was put to the test. Hecklen again made the open and Van Putten three-bet his short stack all-in from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="3h"]. Hecklen, going for his second knockout in under 10 minutes, made the call with [poker card="kc"][poker card="th"]. The flop fell [poker card="9d"][poker card="jh"][poker card="6h"] giving Hecklen a gutshot straight draw, but keeping Van Putten in the lead. The turn was gin for Hecklen, the [poker card="qs"] and it left Van Putten drawing dead. The [poker card="4s"] completed the board and Van Putten headed for the cage to collect his €86,170 for seventh place. Next, it was Tomas Paiva’s turn to tangle with Hecklen. From under the gun, Paiva shipped just under 20bbs with [poker card="9s"][poker card="9h"]. In the hijack, Hecklen reshoved, covering Paiva and holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board provided no drama for Hecklen, running out six-high. Paiva earned a career-high cash of €117,340 for his sixth-place finish. After a break, the final five players were back at it and so was Hecklen, who had another final table confrontation. Canada’s Daviel Dvoress put in a raise with [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] and was three-bet by Hecklen. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="ac"][poker card="5d"]. Hecklen bet, Dvoress call and they saw the turn of the [poker card="5c"]. Hecklen led again, Dvoress called again. The river was the [poker card="8s"] and Hecklen, covering Dvoress shoved. Dvoress tank called and Hecklen turned over the [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"] for top two pair, eliminating Dvoress in fifth place for €155,010. While Hecklen was busy knocking out opponents, Alexandre Reard was busy doubling up. He actually did that a few times to climb out of critical condition and back into contention. After crippling defending Prague High Roller champion Danny Tang in a hand just minutes prior, Reard finished the job. Tang shoved his short stack from under the gun with [poker card="ks"][poker card="8s"] and Reard made the call from the big blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="3s"]. The flop was [poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="ts"] offering Tang some backdoor opportunities and Reard a nut flush possibility. The turn was the [poker card="js"] giving Tang some life. However the river was a hapless [poker card="7h"] and Tang who won this event last year, settled for fourth place and another €197,720 for his bankroll. Reard was making headway into Hecklen’s lead but then he ran into German legend Ole Schemion who was biding his time, looking for openings. Schemion and Reard clashed in all-in confrontation that led to Schemion doubling through Reard. Then Reard faced the same situation as four other players before him, a clash with Hecklen. Hecklen raised the button and Reard defending hold [poker card="6h"][poker card="6c"]. The flop came [poker card="4c"][poker card="kc"]p6s] and Reard check-called a bet from Hecklen. The turn was the [poker card="8h"], Reard check-called an even bigger bet from Hecklen. The river was the [poker card="9s"], Reard, holding a set, checked again, Hecklen thought and shoved, having Reard covered. Reard snap called with his set, however, it was Hecklen who was ahead since the turn, turning over the [poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"] for a straight. Reard’s valiant final table performance came to an end in third place for €244,950 pushing the Frenchman’s total live cash north of $2 million in his career. Hecklen, who has dominated the final table now faced his toughest challenge in that of Schemion. Holding a 5:1 chip lead when play began, Hecklen lost a few key hands early, allowing Schemion to double thru and, at one point, take the chip lead. However, Hecklen seemed destined to close out this tournament as he battled back to reclaim the chip lead. In the final hand, Schemion called on the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="2c"] and Hecklen put in a raise with the [poker card="qs"][poker card="qc"]. Schemion waited a breath and moved all in only to be snap called by Hecklen. The board ran out clean for Hecklen - [poker card="ks"][poker card="3d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="kd"] - leaving the German phenom to settle for second place and €334,900. The result leaves Schemion just shy of $15 million in live total earnings. For his part Hecklin’s High Roller victory is the current money peak of his career and is his first live victory since winning the Estrellas High Roller at EPT Barcelona back in 2014. Hecklen earns €503,700 ($572,688) for the victory. PokerStars next stop will be at the 2019 PCA, which will include the $25K PSPC. The festival gets underway on January 6.

  5. History was made in the PokerStars EPT Prague €5,300 Main Event as Mikalai Pobal emerged as just the second player in European Poker Tour history to become a two-time Main Event champion. It was a long road to victory for Pobal who first battled through the field of 1,154 entries and then grinded his way up from the short stack at the final table to put himself in position to become the first man to ever win two EPT Main Events. Eventually, Pobal faced off against two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Norbert Szecsi in a fast-paced heads-up match to claim the historic title and €1,005,600 first-place prize. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] At the start of the final day, only five players remained. Even though Portal was sitting in the bottom half of the chip counts, everyone had over thirty big blinds so there was still room for everyone to maneuver. Nearly three hours into the day, the first of the five hit the rail. After Gaby Livshitz put in a raise with [poker card="jh"][poker card="6h"], Portugal’s Tomas Paiva made the call from the big blind holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="8c"]. The flop came [poker card="8s"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4h"], giving Paiva top pair and Livshitz an open-ended straight draw with a flush draw. Paiva, check-raised Livshitz who then shoved over the raise. Paiva made the call with his tournament on the line. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] bringing in the flush for Livshitz, but giving Paiva some life with one card to come. However, the river fell the [poker card="6c"] providing no help to the Paiva’s trips and sending him out the door in fifth place for €241,230. With four left, Pobal was now the shortest stack at the table. He picked his spots and found a double up and then quickly doubled again providing him some breathing room. Over the next two hours, Pobal began to climb the chip counts when eventually he knocked out his first opponent of the day. Livshitz limped the small blind holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] and Pobal made a small raise with his [poker card="as"][poker card="ac"]. Livshitz three-bet and after taking a moment to think about it, Pobal elected to flat call the raise. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="js"][poker card="3d"]. Livshitz bet his top pair, Pobal took his time and put in a raise. Livshitz shoved and was snap-called by Pobal who watched as his pocket aces held through the [poker card="5d"] turn and the [poker card="7h"] river. Livshitz finished in fourth place earning €316,780. Pobal and Szecsi took turns holding the chip lead while Brazil’s Ricardo Da Rocha tried to climb back from the short stack. Eventually, with fewer than ten big blinds De Rocha moved all-in holding [poker card="as"][poker card="jh"] and was called by Szecsi holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"]. The board [poker card="kd"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="8s"] provided no help to the Brazilian and Da Rocha walked away in third place, taking home €421,450. With Pobal holding a slight chip lead heading into heads-up play, the pair briefly discussed the possibility of a deal. Unable to come to an agreement, Pobal and Szesi settled in to determine a winner with history on the line. It didn’t take long as Pobal ran hot right from the start and quickly held a sizable chip lead over Szecsi. On the final hand of the tournament, Szecsi raised the button with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8c"] and Pobal put in a three-bet with [poker card="ks"][poker card="kc"]. Szecsi stuck all his chips in the middle and was immediately called by Pobal. The [poker card="4c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="3d"] flop brought Szecsi some backdoor possibilities but the [poker card="2h"] turn was of no help. Finally, the [poker card="ah"] hit the river and Hungary’s Norbert Szecsi settled for a €598,880 payday as the runner-up. Pobal earned the 2019 EPT Prague Main Event title and €1,005,600 first-place prize. He became just the second player, the first male player, to win two EPT Main Event titles.
