While Event #6: €25,500 Short Deck High Roller at the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe played down to a champion, another Short Deck showdown took place right in front of the feature table as King’s Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik battled with some of the biggest names of the international poker circuit in the King’s Short Deck €100K Super High Roller.
Leon Tsoukernik and Phil Ivey went to heads-up, who had a huge advantage in chips at the beginning of the heads-up, but Tsoukernik managed to double three times. In the final hand, when Tsoukernik had a 4-1 chip advantage, he and his KK beat Phil Ivy against KJ. Leon Tsoukernik got over €1,100,000 for his victory.
