Despite the bone-crushing negative temperature, the atmosphere in the Czech Republic’s capital Prague is red-hot for the poker fans. PokerStars Championship is currently underway at Casino Atrium, offering a bountiful selection of tournaments and noteworthy prize pools. Event #9: PokerStars Championship Super High Roller is upon us and the remaining 3 survivors are to play down to a winner. At this moment, the 3 poker hopefuls are really close to the first-place prize and determined to leave the poker arena with a title. This makes the poker contention even more spectacular. The clash of the Titans is to commence later today.
The prestigious tournament attracted the attention of 25 players. However, the special format of the event allowed players to re-enter the tournament without any limits. So, the tournament saw 7 re-entries, which gave an additional boost to the life-changing prize pool. The money bubble burst sometime during Day 2 and Dietrich Fast was the unfortunate soul to leave the tournament empty-handed.
The Canadian poker specialist Sam Greenwood, whose bankroll currently stands at $6,986,778, succumbed in 5th place. Koray Aldemir managed to top the chip counts, but his triumph did not last for long. Even though the player was the first to collect a portion of the prize pool, he was denied the chance to add another notch in his belt. Orpen Kisacikoglu could not survive another all-in confrontation and exited the poker contention in 4th place.
Meet the Remaining Three Players
By the time all the scheduled 10 one-hour levels were completed, the star-packed field was trimmed to just 3 players. The remaining survivors needed to decide if they are to play down to a winner, or they will determine the name of the winner on the next day. Eventually, the players agreed to resume playing on the next day, which is today.
Day 2 of the tournament was completed with Timothy Adams leading the chip counts for the day with 6.045 million. The Canadian poker pro is to enter the three-handed battle with a commanding chip advantage over his opponents. It is interesting to note that the player is ranked in 6th place in Canada All-Time Money List. His extensive poker portfolio is a proof of his accomplished poker skills. The player has more than $7 million in total live earnings and multiple in-the money finishes.
Adrian Mateos from Spain is the other player to appear on the felt. He is to bring 1.79 million worth in chips. Mikita Badziakouski from Belarus is to enter the three-handed battle as the shortest stack, holding 665,000 in chips. They are all guaranteed a cash prize of no less than €244,900, but they all certainly vie for the title and the first-place prize of €555,000.
