Who Will Win the Last Ever EPT High Roller?

Grzegorz Wyraz

The third and final day of the EPT Prague High Roller kicks off in about two hours at 12:30 p.m. local time. During the first two days of play, the field was trimmed from its record-break EPT Prague 407 entrants to just 22, with Polish live satellite winner Grzegorz Wyraz holding a substantial chip lead with 3,137,000.

Other players in the top five heading into the day include Ukraine's Glib Kovtunov (1,878,000), Denmark's Tue Ullerup Hansen (1,546,000), Finland's Jussi Nevanlinna (1,417,000) and Lithuania's Matas Cimbolas (1,156,000).

Another player who will be part of the action is the infamously talkative Brit William Kassouf. However, Kassouf will be starting off with one of the shorter stacks today with 336,000 or 14 big blinds with the action set to begin on Level 22 with blinds at 12,000/24,000 and an ante of 4,000. Regardless of how the day turns out for Kassouf and all of the 22 remaining players, each is guaranteed to walk away with a payout of €35,140.

Play will continue until one player claims the final EPT HIgh Roller title along with the top prize of €765,900. Who will it be? Stay tuned at PokerNews to find out as we bring you the action from the first flop to the final river.

Shuffle Up and Deal

Niveau 22 : 12,000/24,000, 4,000 ante

Cards are now in the air. However, just before, the remaining 22 players were informed of a few structure changes. Levels 28-29 will be reduced from 60 minute blind levels to 50 minutes. Starting at Level 30, blind levels will increase every 40 minutes.

The tournament director informed the field that this was due to the large field size the event attracted.

Austria's Josip Simunic joked that, "Can we just flip right now?"

Leckey Doubles Through Soika

Niveau 22 : 12,000/24,000, 4,000 ante

In the first hand of the day, Paul Leckey open-shoved for his last 310,000 from middle position and Ihar Soika reshoved all in from the button.

Paul Leckey: {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Ihar Soika: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}

The {K-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop changed nothing, but Soika improved with the {A-Spades} on the turn. Leckey stood up to grab his belongings right before the {4-Diamonds} on the river gave him the two-outer to stay in.

Seven High Like a Boss?

Niveau 22 : 12,000/24,000, 4,000 ante

William Kassouf began the day with 14 big blinds on Table 1. Known for talking on the table just as much as Kassouf, if not more, is Lithuania's Matas Cimbolas who was just involved in a hand against France's [Removed:146].

Guerfi opened for 56,000 from under the gun. It folded around to Cimbolas on the button who asked how much the bet was before he called. The chip leader Grzegorz Wyraz folded from the small blind before Steven Thompson Vila called from the big blind.

Flop: {Q-}{Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Thompson Vila checked before Guerfi led out for 102,000. Cimbolas called and Thompson Vila folded. Both players checked when the {6-Spades} appeared on the turn as well as after the {8-Spades} completed the board on the river.

Guerfi tabled {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts} while Cimbolas through his {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} on the table and joked in Kassouf's direct stating, "Seven high like a boss."

From the button, Alexandru Papazian opened to 56,000 and Patrick Serda three-bet all in for 622,000 in the small blind. Papazian called and put his opponent at risk.

Patrick Serda: {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

The board came {7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and the river card saved Serda.

One hand later, Viacheslav Goryachev open-shoved and Papazian called all in from the cutoff for around 150,000.

Goryachev tabled the {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Papazian had two overcards in {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. The board ran out {7-Spades}{6-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and neither player had a spade to see Papazian depart in 22nd place for €35,140.

Lakemeier Takes from Finger

Niveau 22 : 12,000/24,000, 4,000 ante

In a three-bet pot, Jens Lakemeier and Martin Finger checked down a king-high board and Finger showed {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. Lakemeier had {Q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for flopped top pair and scooped the pot.

The {8-Diamonds} turn and {2-Hearts} river went check, check, and Lakemeier showed the {8-Clubs} first followed by the {J-Clubs}. Finger folded and conceeded the second pot in a short time to his fellow countryman.
