A winner will be crowned at the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe at the King's Resort in Rozvadov as Event #8: €25,500 Platinum High Roller No-Limit Hold’Em will play down to a champion. There are six players remaining out of 83 entries and thelion's share of the €1,971,250 prize pool is still up for grabs with €95,962 guaranteed thus far, however, the top prize of €596,883 awaits to the eventual champion.
One year ago it was Michael Addamo that won his second WSOP bracelet in this very event and fellow countryman Kahle Burns may follow into his footsteps as he bagged up 33,650,000, good enough for 67 big blinds and the lead for the six-handed showdown.
Burns has two cashes to his name during the festival in Rozvadov with a 12th place in the WSOP International Circuit Event for €12,250 and 9th place in Event #5: €2,500 8-Game Mix.
He is followed by 2019 WSOP Main Event champion Hossein Ensan, who reached the final day with a stack of 22,000,000 and sits in a comfortable second place. Timothy Adams (9,650,000), Alex Foxen (7,200,000), Abdelhakim Zoufri (5,500,000) and Sam Trickett (4,975,000) will all aim to add a maiden gold bracelet to their collection.
