Radim Husárik from the Czech Republic has won the Main Event of November Poker Fever Series and cashed CZK 773,000. Polish poker players also did well in the tournament, taking among others the second and third places.
Poker Fever Series Main Event had a CZK 4,800 buy-in. The prize pool was traditionally CZK 5,000,000 guaranteed. 955 registrations in the event was not enough for the gtd prize pool to be paid from entry fees, but the overlay was tiny.
The cash prizes were given out to 116 best players in the event. The winner was to take CZK 831,600, and each player who qualified for the streamed finals was guaranteed CZK 74,800.
The final table included 4 players from Poland and 5 from the Czech Republic. Chip leader was initially Jakub Matuszczyk, and Polish fans were hoping he will be able to repeat what so far the only Polish PFS champ,Jakub Chludziński, did.
The final table
First to go were three players from the Czech Republic – Mirek Špička (9th place – CZK 74,800), Dalibor Hill (8th place – CZK 90,200) and Roman Papacek (7th place – CZK 107,800). Poker Fever Series November 2017 champion was eliminated by Daniel Olejniczak (pictured on the right), whose AJ managed to win with opponent’s AK.
At that time the biggest stacks were Denis Kumiec and Radim Husárik. He took the lead after eliminating his countryman, Miroslav Matějíček (5th spot – CZK 198,000). Three Poles were left in the game versus one man from the Czech Republic, but he had a hige advantage over them.Olejniczak with his KJ eliminated then Krzysztof Goj who had to settle for CZK 140,800 for the 6th position.
When the game was 4-handed players decided to discuss a deal. It took them 40 minutes, but finally they agreed. The winner was to play for th trophy and extra CZK 202,700. The guaranteed payouts looked the following way:

Title for Husarik, but also a great performance by his rival
Soon after the game was resumed we entered the heads-up phase. Olejniczak hit the rail after he failed to bluff Husárik and Kumiec’s AQ was beat by chip leader’s KJ. Husárik faced in the final HU Matuszczyk (pictured below).
It’s worth noting that Matuszczyk is not a very experienced player. His biggest live win is CZK 465,800 he won here.
