The €10,300 Main Event at the 2019 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Europe is done and Lukas Zaskodny has been crowned the winner. He took home €906,770 for beating the 504-entry field and a heads-up deal with Josef Snejberg. Snejberg settled for €718,230. The podium was completed by Romain Lewis. Lewis took home the bronze for the biggest live cash of his career, €428,000.

The tournament ended with quite shallow stacks and most of the eliminations were in standard situations. Zaskodny addressed this after he won: “We were playing for a lot of money, and the pay jumps were quite huge. Even though the table is quite shallow, I understand that nobody wants to be eliminated.”

Zaskodny also said he is very good friends with Snejberg. “One month ago we had a groundbreaking with my garden. And we were talking and saying that we’ve never played heads-up together, even though we’ve played together many years. So one month after that, we got heads up.”

Final Table Action

Only eight players remained out of the 504 entries that were made in the Main Event. Charlie Carrel started the day as chip leader after a dominating performance on Day 3 of the tournament. He started off on the same track by immediately busting out Rastislav Paleta in eighth place (€100,000). After that, however, Carrel wasn't able to win a single hand and he ended up losing every single all-in situation to end up in seventh place himself. Carrel took home €130,000 for his efforts, despite having one-third of the chips earlier in the day.

Team partypoker pro Roberto Romanello was one of the players that made his way to Day 3 through the online Day 1+2. Romanello had a stellar start on Day 3 but his run came to an end in sixth place after being one of the players that doubled through Carrel. Romanello took home €170,000. Sam Grafton was one of several players that held the chip lead during the final table but his run came to an end in fifth (€220,000).

Romanello wasn't the only player at the final to make it to the final table after finding his way to Day 3 through the partypoker client. Severin Schleser (4th - €300,000) and Lewis (3rd - €428,000) also set foot in the Kings Resort for the first time during this series on Day 3 of the Main Event. Schleser qualified for the tournament through an online satellite on partypoker with a buy-in about 100 times smaller than the €10,300 most of the players ponied up.

The last non-Czech player in the tournament was Lewis and the heads-up match started with the two players from the Czech Republic after a little break. Zaskodny and Snejberg agreed on a deal and they would finish the tournament playing for €100,000. Snejberg already secured €718,230 and Zaskodny, who held the chip lead going into the heads up, secured €806,770. Snejberg took over the lead during the heads-up but Zaskodny then won two big pots to end the tournament and take home the extra €100,000.

That wraps up the coverage of the 2019 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Europe in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.
