Eureka4 Rozvadov: Vana leads Day 1B; Raab leads overall

It's deja vu at a Eureka Poker Tour event because for the third event in a row, records have been smashed. First Eureka3 Prague saw the biggest ever field for a Eureka Poker Tour event, a record it held until the very next event - Eureka4 Vienna. Now here in Rozvadov, another record has been broken ...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: Biggest ever standalone event

With the final number in as 493, this makes Eureka Rozvadov the biggest ever standalone Eureka Poker Tour event. Eureka Prague and Eureka Vienna both attracted over a thousand runners with 1,315 and 1,432 respectively but both were part of lengthy European Poker Tour festivals and not the focal poin...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: The post-dinner break hunt for a chip leader

With players now back from the dinner break, the hunt begins for a chip leader. At the moment, there's no-one above 100,000 just yet but there are several stacks loitering with intent at the 80,000 mark. At the very top at this moment looks to be Sven Haberger with 82,500 coming back from break and ...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: A round with Michael Eiler

I'm going to level with you people, this blog, on occasion, likes to promote PokerStars-affiliated players. Now, I know that may seem shocking to you but I swear it is the truth. Usually around this time of the tournament, it's nice to do a round with a PokerStars sponsored player. Unfortunately, th...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: Free money!

Everyone loves value, why do you think they call it a value bet? It's a price that's too good to refuse and at the moment there looks to be some excellent value here in Rozvadov. There are now 286 entries for Day 1B, which combined with the 192 players that entered on Day 1A means that the total num...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: Using an image

"Image is everything" or so they say, a youngster with oversized headphones, a colourful hoodie and a slightly overconfident manner is less likely to see his raises respected than say the average forty-something. Perhaps that is one of Jan Bendik's less obvious strengths. There is nothing obvio...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: A flying start for some

Not everyone today will arrive at King's Casino by helicopter but then, not everyone is best friends with the owner Leon Tsoukernik. Tony Guoga is a close friend and the two have played more than their fair of nosebleed stakes PLO games against one another. It's been a hectic few days for Guoga, onl...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: Raab leads Day 1A field

In many respects, the Hofburg Palace in Vienna and King's Casino in Rozvadov are opposites. The palace is a behemoth of a building where you could genuinely get lost for days (I still subscribe that you could organise the greatest ever game of hide & seek there). Rozvadov, on the surface, seems ...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: Dining well after six levels

Going into the dinner break, it looks as though  Tamás Tomozi is chip leader at the break with around 70,000. Tomozi is that rare beast, a player with what appears to be a completely empty set of live results. Not that it matters, everyone has to start somewhere, right?<form mt:asset-id="230...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: A round with Martin Hruby

PokerStars Team Pro Martin Hruby is probably one of the best-known players involved in the action today. Hruby came second in EPT Vienna back in Season 7 losing out to Michael Eiler heads-up but still able to walk away with €470,000. Today Hruby is already up at 50,000 and one of biggest stacks afte...more

Eureka4 Rozvadov: A tale of two champions

Most poker players build up their bankrolls by grinding their way up the stakes while there are businessmen and others who have acquired their wealth elsewhere which allows them to play impetuously at almost any stakes. Then there are people who win gameshows.<form mt:asset-id="230370" class="mt-...more
