Three Brits, three Czechs, the French and the Austrian were facing each other at the final table, but the luck was with a Czech national Lukas Zaskodny.
The last day of the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Europe Main Event with the buy-in of €10,300 gathered eight talented hold’em players. The heads up duel ended when two compatriots Lukas Zaskodny and Josef Snejberg identified who was the best.
The event with 504 participants lasted for four days, during which 496 players were dropping out on the way to the final battle. Charlie Carrel who is considered one of the world’s most talented poker players (his last big win of £1.3 million was at Triton Poker Super High Roller in London) joined two other Brits Roberto Romanello ($450 thousand at the last Caribbean Poker Party) and Sam Grafton (the former 11th in the WSOP rankings).
Roman Lewis (three final tables in 2018) was the only French to reach this stage. Another the only representative of his country was an Australian national Severin Schleser. The Czech Rastislav Paleta was the last one to be in the final eight and the first one to leave it with a minimum prize of €100 thousand.
Notwithstanding the chip lead as of the beginning of the fourth day, Carrel was the next one to end his game. His compatriots were out right after him. Schleser and Lewis ranked fourth (€300 thousand) and third (€428 thousand) accordingly.
The hottest battle was between the two Czechs Snejberg and Zaskodny with the leader changing a couple of times. However, Lukas’s final combination of pocket tens beat Josef’s AT and let him win incredible €906.770. In turn, Snejberg received €718,230.
As mentioned earlier, Super High Roller tournament in London made the winner more than €1 million richer.
