Martin Kabrhel Wins WSOPE Event #3 for €53,557

Martin Kabrhel Wins WSOPE Event #3 for €53,557The 2017 WSOP Europe got underway exactly one week ago at the King’s Casino in the Czech Republic, with the latest player to win a bracelet being home-grown talent Martin Kabrhel, who took down Event #3: €1,100 NLHE Super Turbo BOUNTY for €53,557 ($62,990).
Kabrhel now has an impressive $3,135,719 in live winnings to his name, with his biggest score recorded in 2010 after claiming victory at the €20,300 EPT Deauville High Roller Event for €250,000 ($ 353,907). When asked about his experience playing the WSOPE turbo tournament, Kabrhel commented:
“I am pretty happy here to win it, especially at King’s. I was really looking forward to this festival. It was pretty short, but not as short as it could be, and it was playable. I was pretty happy with how I played.”
The €1,100 NLHE Super Turbo BOUNTY event attracted a field of 325 players, and amongst the notable pros booking a cash place was Chris Ferguson in 36th (€1,302), Brandon Cantu in 24th (€1,478), Phil Hellmuth Jr in 11th (€2,554), and Mike Leah in 10th (€2,554).
Martin Kabrhel then entered the final table in pole position, followed by Germany’s Philipp Caranica, with both players eventually making it all the way through to heads-up play. First, Caranica (A-J) dispatched Viktor Kovachev (Q-J) to the rail in 9th, and after Georgios Koliofotis bowed out in 8th, Kabrhel eliminated all the other remaining contenders to force the final battle against Caranica for a coveted gold bracelet.
Fifty hand would then ensue before Kabrhel (10-7) shoved preflop into a short-stacked Caranica, who made the call holding A-6. The dealer subsequently brought proceedings to an end after producing a 2-2-J-9-7 board to hand Kabrhel the victory, while Finnish player Philipp Caranica collected €33,094 ($38,923) for his impressive run. That amount now accounts for all but $4,689 of Caranica’s live tournament earnings.
Meanwhile, a delighted Martin Kabrhel heaped praise upon the King’s Casino in Rozvadov where the WSOP Europe is currently taking place, stating: “It is a great poker room, the final table at the venue here is beautiful. I play 90% of my poker at King’s and I won two Circuit Rings here.”
Final Table Results:
1st: Martin Kabrhel €53,557
2nd: Philipp Caranica €33,094
3rd: Salvatore Camarda €22,159
4th: Liran Twito €15,168
5th: Yves Kupfermunz €10,620
