As many as four Polish poker players will compete today for the champion title at Poker Fever Series. The chip leader at the moment is Jakub Matuszczyk (pictured below). Starting from 3:30 p.m. you can follow our stream with hole cards visible to you.
Main Event of the November Poker Fever Series had a CZK 4,800 buy-in. There were as many as 955 registrations and the guaranteed prize pool was CZK 5,000,000, so there was a bit of an overlay.
Best 116 players can hope for cash prizes and the winner will scoop CZK 831,600, that is about $37,000. Yesterday we got to know 9 final table participants and they each have already guaranteed themselves CZK 74,800.
Chip leader at the beginning of the final table will be Jakub Matuszczyk, who bagged 5,655,000 chips. Right behind him a player from the Czech Republic – Miroslav Matějíček (3,940,000) and Poker Fever Series November 2017 champion, Roman Papacek (3,785,000).
At the final table we will also see three other players from Poland. Denis Kumiec, with 3,585,000 in his stack (he was 5th in Masters Mini 2017). In July this year he also cashed in the Poker Fever Series ME. Other players from Poland are Daniel Olejniczak (3,270,000) and Krzysztof Goj (2,310,000). Apart from them we have Dalibor Hill (2,550,000), Radim Husarik and Mirek Špička.
Radim will start with 2,475,000 stack and Špička will have 840,000 to fire away with. Players such as Petr Kuběnka (10th place – CZK 61,600), Marek Ždánský (11th position – CZK 61,600), Mikołaj Lewandowicz (14th spot – CZK 47,700) and Mariusz Masłowski (15th – CZK 47,700) got eliminated beforehand and we will not see them today.
