Presque à domicile, le propriétaire du King's Casino Rozvadov a dominé Charlie Carrel pour empocher son plus beau trophée et un chèque de 741 100€.

Après l'élimination de Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier à la bulle, le jeu s'était poursuivi jusqu'à la sortie d'Anthony Zinno en 7e position pour 123 520€ lors du Jour 2. Les six finalistes revenaient à l'Hôtel Hilton de Prague pour en finir, mardi sous l'oeil des caméras de PokerStars Live.

Leon Tsoukernik était déjà en tête, poursuivi par Charlie Carrel avec qui il avait disputé de nombreux pots lors du Jour 2. Juha Helppi et Viacheslav Buldygin formaient le second groupe alors que Paul Newey et Julian Thomas étaient en queue de peloton.

Les finalistes sont sortis dans l'ordre de leur tapis de départ lors de cette finale qui nous a offert de gros pots, des bluffs et quelques conversations sympathiques.

En début de TF, Charlie Carrel a pris la tête en bluffant Leon Tsoukernik. Rien n'a changé pour Julian Thomas. Le vainqueur du WPT Prague 2013 n'a jamais trouvé de spot pour doubler. L'Allemand finit 6e pour 152 915€ après avoir été victime de Carrel.

Paul Newey, runner-up de ce tournoi lors de la première édition en 2014, a attendu, attendu, attendu... et finalement trouvé une paire de {10-}{10-}. Mais les {8-}{8-} de Viacheslav Buldygin ont fait quinte à la rivière pour renvoyer le riche amateur dans le rail. Newey encaisse 200 000€ pour sa 5e place.

Dans la foulée, sur la main suivante, Charlie Carrel et Leon Tsoukernik vont jouer la main clé du tournoi. L'affrontement va durer 10 minutes et Tsoukernik chatter à la rivière. Avec {7-}{2-} en main, il repasse devant les deux paires du jeune anglais et renverse la vapeur. Carrel a hésité 8 minutes sans parvenir à se résoudre à rendre ses cartes au croupier...

Ce pot énorme permet à Leon de se porter très largement en tête de la finale alors que Charlie se retrouve dernier de la classe. Le Britannique ne perd pas son humour en indiquant rapidement que l'unique but réaliste est désormais de terminer runner-up.

Avec un gros chipleader et trois poursuivants, le rythme s'est ralenti et c'est Juha Helppi qui s'est retrouvé en short le premier. Le Finlandais va réussir à doubler au grand dam de Viacheslav Buldygin qui termine 4e après avoir fait tapis avec {j-Spades}{9-Spades} et s'être empalé sur {j-}{j-}.

Juha Helppi, tout juste 4e du Master Classics of Poker Amsterdam, ne va pas résister plus longtemps et complètele podium pour un gain de 341 150€, le deuxième plus gros score de sa carrière. Ce résultat permet à Helppi de revenir à 233 000$ de Patrik Antonius à la all-time money list finlandaise

Comme prévu Charlie Carrel et Leon Tsoukernik se retrouvent en heads up. Voisins depuis l'entame du tournoi, les deux joueurs n'ont pas arrêté de s'affronter. Le ton était même légèrement monté lors du Jour 1 avant que tout ne rentre rapidement dans l'ordre et ne laisse place à une compétition à la régulière.

Tsoukernik, qui nous a gratifié d'un "Je suis le dernier pro en lice, le reste du field est semi-professionnel... au mieux" durant la finale, s'est montré très actif au niveau chambre et Charlie Carrel a toujours gardé le sourire, content de livrer un duel animé même s'il n'a commencé qu'avec un tiers des jetons.

Carrel n'est jamais parvenu à inverser la tendance et il est rapidement entré dans la zone où il faut jeter ses cartes ou faire tapis. Le jeune homme va retrouver à tapis avec {a-}{k-}... en belle position puisque Tsoukernik ne peut dévoiler mieux que {k-Spades}{j-Spades}. Un flop hauteur {j-} avec deux piques laisse présager d'un avenir compliqué pour Carrel qui rejoint le rail plus riche de 535 250€ après deux briques au tournant et à la rivière.

Le Tsar de Rozvadov aura dominé le tournoi de bout en bout et permis un streaming plutôt fun. De quoi tourner la page des SHR European Poker Tour avec le sourire...

Hand 127: Charlie Carrel open-shoved for his last 1,270,000 from the small blind and Leon Tsoukernik peeked at his cards, then called.

Charlie Carrel: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Leon Tsoukernik: {K-Spades}{J-Spades}

"He has ace-king..." Tsoukernik said to his Czech rail, and asked for spades next.

The dealer brought a magic flop of {J-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}. Carrel was drawing very thin all of a sudden and joined the rail after the {5-Hearts} turn and {K-Clubs} river changed nothing.

The players shook hands with Carrel still having a smile on his face before leaving the spotlight to Tsoukernik. The Brit missed out on scooping a third EPT High Roller title and took home €535,250 for his efforts.

A recap of today's action will be available shortly.
