Kashi & Oliva Bag Big in the PPC Czech Main Event 14.08.2022 05:09 by Jason Glatzer
2022 PPC Czech Republic

Saturday was a banner day at King’s Resort with the two opening flights of the €500,000 guaranteed partypoker Championship (PPC) Czech €330 Main Event drawing huge numbers.

Signs were good with the early Day 1f flight attracting 416 entries, by far the biggest opening flight at the time. A total of 64 players were scheduled to bag chips. However, two players busted on the bubble leaving just 63 players with Arian Kashi not only bagging the biggest stack with 2,593,000 in chips but also the overall chip lead.

Things got even bigger for the later Day 1g flight with 465 entrants getting into the action. A total of 70 players survived with Jakub Oliva coming out on top with 2,052,000 in chips after more than 10 hours of play.

PPC Czech Main Event by the Numbers Thus Far

Thus far, the PPC Czech Main Event attracted 1,954 entries with 294 players surviving. The €500,000 guarantee has already been smashed with the field generating a massive €556,890 prize pool, which includes six seats to the 2022 WSOP Europe €10,350 Main Event. These figures will continue to grow with one last turbo opening flight taking place on Sunday at 11 a.m.

All surviving players have already secured at least a €600 min-cash even before cards will be in the air on Day 2 on Sunday at 4:30 p.m.

Raji Nagib – 0

It was looking like showers for Riccardi after Reinbold nailed top pair on the 4 A 2 flop. However, Riccardi improved to two pair after the J turn and K river to double his stack instead of hitting the rail.

Witali Reinbold – 1,400,000
Nadir Riccardi – 350,000

Entries: 88/465

Nobody-Leroy jammed from the small blind for less than 10 big blinds and was called by Damian Kucharski from the big blind.

Nobody-Leroy: 9 3
Damian Kucharski: K 9

Nobody-Leroy got nowhere on the A 5 2 8 J board and was eliminated by Kucharski.

Damian Kucharski – 800,000

Entries: 101/465

Prasil Miroslav three-bet jammed for 50,000 over an opener and two callers and all three players called to see the 9 A 10 flop.

Two players checked before Slavisa Radosavjevic bet. The other two players folded and the cards were turned over.

Prasil Miroslav: 7 6
Slavisa Radosavjevic: A J

Miroslav begged the dealer for an eight to complete his straight but that wasn’t meant to be. Instead, the 10 turn and K river completed the board to send Miroslav to the rail.

Francisc Voidoc: A K

Tucci was ahead after the Q 7 4 flop but had tons of outs to sweat with Voidoc holding two overcards and a flush draw. One of those overcards hit with the K coming on the turn. Despite Tucci being far behind, he still got there by hitting his one outer on the 8 river to double his stack and celebrated after the hand.

Andrea Tucci – 280,000
Francisc Voidoc – 50,000

Nagib Raji: J J
Besnik Lalinovci: 10 7

Raji just needed to hold for a double. He did better than that by improving to a full house on the 8 8 3 7 J board.

Besnik Lalinovci – 125,000

Bartlomiej Muzacz: 8 8
Raul Sav: A K

Muzacz let out a loud sigh of frustration after his opponent’s ace paired up on the A 9 6 flop. Eventually, Rav improved to the nut-flush after the 4 turn and 3 river completed the board to eliminate Muzacz.

Murolo Wins a Big Flip Against Spivack 13.08.2022 21:52 by Jason Glatzer

Level 7: 1,000/2,000 (2,000)
Entries: 300/390

Yfiem Spivack four-bet jammed for 110,000. One player folded with 16,000 already invested before Luigi Murolo came in over the top for 143,000. Guangwei Ren, who also already committed 16,000 in the pot, asked for a count. Ren tanked for more than a minute before he folded.

Yfiem Spivack: A K
Luigi Murolo: J J

Murolo’s jacks won the flip to eliminate his opponent and win a massive pot after Spivack bricked the 10 8 10 Q 2 board.

Luigi Murolo – 300,000
Yfiem Spivack – 0

“I Didn’t Bluff, Sorry” 13.08.2022 21:38 by Jason Glatzer

Level 7: 1,000/2,000 (2,000)
Entries: 306/381

Bartlomiej Muzacz jammed for 47,200 into a pot of 55,000 with the A 4 A 8 2 on the board. Raul Sav paused for a few moments before he called. Muzacz turned over 8 8 for a full house and Sav wanted to muck his hand. The dealer informed Sav that since it was an all-in situation, he had to show his cards. Sav turned over Q Q and the dealer awarded Muzacz the pot to double his stack.

Despite losing the hand, Sav still had one of the bigger stacks in the room.

“I didn’t bluff, sorry,” said Muzacz to Sav after the hand ended.

Raul Sav – 300,000
Bartlomiej Muzacz – 160,000

Day 1f Concluded 13.08.2022 21:27 by Jason Glatzer

The Day 1f flight, which began at 11 a.m., has just completed with 25 minutes remaining on Level 19 with blinds at 15,000/30,000. Two players went out on the bubble, meaning that just 63 players advanced and not 64 players as scheduled.

PokerListings will post the final chip counts of the 63 players that advanced as soon as it’s available. As has been the case for all of the opening flights, each of the survivors is already guaranteed at least a min-cash of €600.

Klebieko Rivers the Nuts 13.08.2022 21:17 by Jason Glatzer

Level 6: 800/1,600 (1,600)
Entries: 294/360

Thomas Theurer jammed his short stack on the turn with the 7 Q 9 10 on the board and was called by Bartlomiej Klebieko.

Thomas Theurer: J 9
Bartlomiej Klebieko: A K

Both players had a flush draw with Klebieko holding the nut flush draw. However, Theurer was ahead when the chips went in with also his nine pairing up. It wasn’t the flush draw that was completed. Instead, Klebieko headed to Broadway with the J river completing the board and giving him the straight to eliminate Theurer.

Bartlomiej Klebieko – 300,000
Thomas Theurer – 0

Trips for Gesell 13.08.2022 20:54 by Jason Glatzer

Level 5: 600/1,200 (1,200)
Entries: 295/340

Nikolaos Kontogeorgopoulos bet 50,000 into a pot of slightly more with the 7 4 4 10 K on the board. Patrick Gesell wasted no time in calling off his stack of 36,600.

Kontogeorgopoulos turned over K 8 for two pair kings over fours after whiffing on his flush draw. Gesell had that beat as he showed A 4 for trip fours to double his stack.

Patrick Gesell – 125,000
Nikolaos Kontogeorgopoulos – 35,000

Thin Value for Gore 13.08.2022 20:42 by Jason Glatzer

Level 5: 600/1,200 (1,200)
Entries: 283/321

More entries came in on the dinner break with the field growing to 321 entries and counting with 283 players remaining.

Over on Table 99, a player with the nickname “Gore” was able to find some thin value as follows.

Sven Beier, Thorsten Pischl, and Gore all checked the 2 3 9 flop and again on the 4 turn. The 4 paired the board on the river. Both Beier and Pischl checked once again before Gore fired 5,000 into a pot of 25,400. Beier quickly called and Pischl opted to fold.

Gore turned over A 3 for two pair fours over treys and won a pot just after the break after Beier mucked his hand.

Gore – 110,000
Sven Beier – 80,000

Dinner Break 13.08.2022 19:59 by Jason Glatzer

Day 1g players are on a 30-minute dinner break.

Straight for Weihs 13.08.2022 19:44 by Jason Glatzer

Level 4: 500/1,000 (1,000)
Entries: 257/277

Joachim Weihs bet 10,000 into a pot of close to 20,000 with the 2 4 3 A on the board after the turn. Michael Church jammed for more than 30,000 and Weihs called.

Michael Church: A 8
Joachim Weihs: 5 4

The best Church could hope for was a chop but he hit the rail after none came with the Q river completing the board.

Joachim Weihs – 110,000
Michael Church – 0

Dzakic Doubles Through Ren 13.08.2022 19:37 by Jason Glatzer

Entries: 253/270

Milos Dzakic jammed for 40,000 into a pot of around 80,000 with the 5 J 6 5 A on the board. Guangwei Ren went into the tank for close to a minute before he found a call.

Dzakic turned over the A Q and won the hand with a better two pair with Ren turning over moments later the Q J .

Milos Dzakic – 160,000
Guangwei Ren – 60,000

Guarantee Already Met 13.08.2022 19:19 by Jason Glatzer

Level 3: 400/800 (800)
Entries: 226/236

The PPC Czech Main Event’s €500,000 guarantee has already been met with the prize pool near €520,000 already thanks to the huge turnouts for Day 1f and Day 1g.

Now it is a matter of how big the prize pool will grow to with still plenty of time for players to late register for Day 1g and another opening flight taking place tomorrow morning with Day 1h kicking off on Sunday at 11 a.m. just before Day 2 begins later in the day at 4:30 p.m.

Included in the prize pool is six WSOP Europe Main Event seats valued at €10,350 each. This should provide an interesting dynamic for the final table with a bubble of sorts taking place between sixth and seventh places.

Top Two Pair for Kucharski to Oust “Mimo” 13.08.2022 19:15 by Jason Glatzer

Level 3: 400/800 (800)
Entries: 226/236

Two players checked with the 5 6 A on the flop before Karim Karouia fired out for 5,500 into a pot of nearly double that. Michal Plicka, a player with the nickname “Mimo”, and Damian Kucharski called to bring four players to the 10 turn.

Kucharski bet out for 30,000. Karouia and Plicka folded, while Mimo opted to called. The 4 completed the board on the river and Kucharski jammed more than covering the around 40,000 Mimo had behind.

Mimo made the call and attempted to muck his hand after Kucharski turned over A 10 for top two pair. Mimo was behind the entire way with A 9 . He immediately re-entered and was seated at a new table after losing his first Day 1g bullet.

Damian Kucharski – 275,000
Mimo – 100,000

Already More Than 200 Day 1g Entries 13.08.2022 18:48 by Jason Glatzer

Level 2: 300/600
Entries: 205/207

The Day 1g field has already surpassed 200 entries. This figure could more than double by the time late registration is closed.

Walter Matura wasn’t the only player to lose his stack. As we reported earlier, Salvatore Di Salvo lost an early pot to Marian Cmor. He lost the rest of his stack to become the second player on the rail during Day 1g.

Matura First to Hit Rail on Day 1g 13.08.2022 18:39 by Jason Glatzer

Level 2: 300/600 (600)
Entries: 194/195

Walter Matura became the first player to hit the rail on Day 1g near the beginning of Level 2.

There was already about 50,000 in the pot when the 2 7 5 was dealt on the flop. Matura checked before a player with the nickname “Compari” jammed for 71,000. Matura thought about it for a minute before he opted to call off for a little less.

Walter Matura: Q Q
Compari: A A

Matura was far behind and neither the K turn nor the K river helped. Compari chipped up to about double a starting stack, while Matura will need to re-enter if he wishes to advance out of the Day 1g flight.

Compari – 200,000
Walter Matura – 0

McLean Rivers Top Pair 13.08.2022 18:25 by Jason Glatzer

Entries: 184/184

Dominique Menzel bet 4,000 into a spread pot of a bit more with the 5 7 8 5 Q on the board. Kevin McLean called before another player folded.

Menzel turned over K 6 for a missed open-ended straight draw. Meanwhile, McLean turned over K Q for a missed flush draw. However, he did river top pair to win the hand and take down the pot.

Kevin McLean – 130,000
Dominique Menzel – 120,000

Entries: 164/164

The Day 1g field has already blossomed to 164 entries and counting. Marian Cmor already won a sizeable pot early on in Level 1 against Salvatore Di Salvo as follows.

Cmor bet 7,000 into a pot of a little bit more with the Q 5 8 J on the board after the turn. Di Salvo raised to 16,000 and Cmor called. The J paired the board on the river. Cmor check-raised a bet by Di Salvo from 12,000 to 42,000. Di Salvo called and mucked his hand after Cmor showed A Q .

Marian Cmor – 170,000
Salvatore Di Salvo – 40,000

Penultimate PPC Czech Main Event Opening Flight Begins at 6 p.m. 13.08.2022 16:45 by Jason Glatzer
PPC Czech Republic

Welcome back to the PokerListings coverage of the €500,000 guaranteed partypoker Championship (PPC) Czech €330 Main Event at the biggest poker room in Europe in King’s Resort.

Today features two more live opening flights with Day 1f already underway with an 11 a.m. start and attracted a banner field of 416 entries with 63 players scheduled to bag chips into tomorrow’s Day 2 with already at least a €600 min-cash secured.

Our coverage will focus on the penultimate live opening flight with Day 1g beginning at 6 p.m. As has been the case with the other opening flights, players will start with a 200 big blind stack of 100,000 chips with blinds increasing every 30 minutes. Players can re-enter up to two times on Day 1g during the 10-level, late-registration window.

All of the opening flights play down to 15% of the field. Based on previous live opening flights, it is likely that we will witness approximately 18 levels of play today. Day 2, however, will be rolled back to Level 16 with blinds at 8,000/16,000 with a big blind ante of 20,000.

Those that fail to find a bag, will have one more opportunity tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. with the turbo-charged Day 1h, which is expected to conclude just before the start of Day 2.

Thus far, the winner of the PPC Czech €150 Opener Farid Taazist is in the lead after bagging 2,290,000 during yesterday’s Day 1d.

Level 18: 10,000/25,000 (25,000)
Entries: 44/293

Players are bagging chips to Day 2 with at least a €600 min-cash.

Nico Adomeit won’t be one of those players as he got his last 300,000 in with 9 9 and was unable to win a flip against the red-hot Antonino Karman with A K after his opponent’s king paired on the K 8 8 J Q runout.

Hand-for-hand play never happened after “Das Momentum” ran out of momentum and chips to leave just 44 players remaining.

Stay tuned at PokerListings for the final Day 1e chip counts along with a recap of the day.

Marvin Hake jammed from early position for 265,000 before Lucas Curot called off for slightly less from the button.

David Riha jammed for 51,000 into a pot of a bit more with the K 8 7 3 8 on the board before Duc Bui went into the tank.

Bui eventually found the call and Riha immediately got out of his chair when he realized his bluff was caught with J 9 . Bui subsequently showed K Q to win a big early pot and felt his opponent.

Duc Bui – 250,000
David Riha – 0

Is Lalinovci a Mind Reader? 12.08.2022 19:00 by Jason Glatzer

Level 2: 300/600 (600)
Entries: 173/175

Alexander Proca bet 12,000 into a pot of a bit more with the 5 A 10 A 3 on the board. Besnik Lalinovci raised to 60,000 and Proca went into the tank.

“I know you have kings,” said Lalinovci.

“Will you show if I fold?” asked Proca.

“I won’t show,” replied Lalinovci.

Proca was in the tank for a couple of minutes before he opted to fold. He decided to show that Lalinovci was correct and turned over K K to the table. Lalinovci didn’t show but did say he had queen-high as the next hand was being dealt. Proca didn’t buy it and we will never know if it was a value-bet or a bluff. What we do know, is that Lalinovci was able to read Proca’s mind, at least for that hand.

Besnik Lalinovci – 170,000
Alexander Proca – 110,000

The field has blossomed to 171 entries and counting. Two of those entrants already lost their stacks in Csaba Hornyik and Milan Crevar.

Crevar immediately got back into the action while Horyik has yet to resurface on the tables but has awhile to decide if he wishes to return to play.

Flush for Soulas to Crack Haider’s Rockets 12.08.2022 18:31 by Jason Glatzer

Level 1: 200/500 (500)
Entries: 157/157

Laurent Soulas checked the J 3 J flop before Thomas Haider bet 4,500 into a pot of a bit more. Soulas raised to 11,000 and Haider called.

Soulas fired out for 25,100 on the 5 turn. Haider raised to 50,500 and Soulas called. The 6 river completed the board and Soulas jammed. Haider asked for a count and was told by the dealer it was 19,200 before he made the call.

Soulas turned over 8 4 for a flush. Haider looked frustrated and reluctantly showed that he was good until the river holding A A . Soulas appears to be the early chip leader while Haider has some work to do after losing most of his initial stack just as the blind level was ending.

Laurent Soulas – 200,000
Thomas Haider – 15,000

Two Pair for Nguyen 12.08.2022 18:19 by Jason Glatzer

Level 1: 200/500 (500)
Entries: 141/141

The field has already grown to 141 entries and counting. Huu Nguyen is one of the players off to a good start after winning a small pot against Peter Ritter.

Nguyen bet 1,200 into a pot of around 5,000 with the 7 8 3 7 on the board after the turn and Ritter called. Ritter then called a bet of 3,000 by Nguyen after the 4 river completed the board. Nguyen immediately tabled the K 8 and won the hand with two pair after Ritter snap-mucked his hand.

Huu Nguyen – 110,000
Peter Ritter – 90,000

Welcome to Day 1e of the €500K GTD PPC Czech Main Event 12.08.2022 11:06 by Jason Glatzer
2022 PPC Czech Republic

Welcome to the PokerListings coverage of the 2022 partypoker Championship (PPC) Czech Main Event taking place at the luxurious King’s Resort from August 8-15. 

The PPC Czech Main Event guarantees a whopping €500,000 for just a €330 buy-in. There are still satellites running in the casino where players can potentially earn a seat for just a fraction of the cost.

As is the trend with partypoker events, the PPC Malta Main Event is a hybrid tournament with three opening flights already played online at partypoker along with eight more live opening flights here at King’s Resort. Players start with a massive stack of 100,000 in chips, equating to 200 big blinds with blinds increasing every 30 minutes.

Players can re-enter twice during each opening flight while late registration is open for the first 10 blind levels, providing plenty of chances to bag a big stack into Day 2.

Players that find a bag will already be in the money for at least a min-cash of €600 and will battle it out for two more days on August 14-15 until a winner is crowned.

Today will feature both Day 1d at 11 a.m. and Day 1e at 6 p.m. Our coverage will begin at 6 p.m. for the later flight and will continue with tomorrow’s Day 1g. Of course, we will be on hand to report all the big hands, bad beats, atmosphere, and more until the latest PPC winner is crowned on Aug. 15.

Also taking place today is the €5,000 guaranteed €150 Ladies Event at 3 p.m. and a €60 Main Event satellite guaranteeing at least 10 seats at 9 p.m.
