Loeser Emerges Victorious At WPT National Rozvadov

Loeser Emerges Victorious At WPT National Rozvadov A total of 374 players entered the WPT National Rozvadov in the Czech Republic, and after three days of action it was Germany’s Manig Loeser who would emerge atop the field to capture the title, as well as its €76,000 ($82,906) first place prize. Following the fourth-biggest score of his poker career, which now boosts his live earnings to $1,552,715, Loeser wrote on Facebook:
“I can’t thank you guys enough for the support, means so much. Party in Vienna tonight, off to Barcelona next week.”
Two of the German’s other biggest paydays came after making deep runs at the WSOP in Las Vegas, finishing runner up at the 2013 WSOP $1,500 Six-Max NL event for $200,698, and third at the 2014 WSOP $5,000 NL event for $288,912. Loeser also finished runner-up at the 2011 GUKPT £1,650 Main Event for (£67,070) $108,512.
While Manig Loeser’s results are not quite as prolific as those of other German pros, such as Tobias Reinkemeier ($10,359,254), Philipp Gruissem ($9,704,016), Ole Schemion ($8,047,106), and Fabian Quoss ($6,812,299), to mention but a few, he still remains very much a part of the formidable generation of young superstars who have stamped their authority on the game over the past few years.
Taking place at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov on the border with Germany, the €1,100 Main Event offered a guaranteed prize pool of €200,000, but by the time all the entries had been taken that figure had increased to €362,780. Eventually, Manig Loeser reached the final table as one of the chip leaders, and then managed to progress all the way through to heads-up play where he faced Netherlands’s Jeffrey Brouwer for the title.
The deciding hand was subsequently played after Brouwer (9-8) moved all-in on a 3-8-7-8-2 board, only to be called by Loeser (K-8) with the same trips, but a superior kicker. Later commenting on the winning hand, Loeser said; “Standard setup; just unlucky for him.”
First Place Prize:
1 Manig Loeser €76,000
2 Jeffrey Brouwer €53,000
3 Sebastian Kos €34,000
4 Marius Kaiser €25,395
5 Michael Goossens €19,046
6 David Dolak €15,237
7 Paul van Oort €12,951
8 Andriy Palyuga €10,521
9 Markus Hofer €7,800
