Another champion has been crowned in Europe’s biggest poker arena at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov. Short Deck Tournament with a buy-in of €25,500, was attended by 111 players and prize pool was €2,636,250.
First place went to Siamak Tooran, for whom this victory was the first in WSOP tournaments. In the heads-up he defeated Tai Ha, who started the final day with one of the shortest stacks. Despite this, Tai Ha and Jonathan Depa were considered to be obvious favorites because, unlike other final table participants, they had a great deal of experience in short deck cash games.
This event was the second WSOP short deck tournament. The first such tournament was held this summer in Las Vegas, where Alex Epstein took first place and Thai Ha finished second.
“I learn very quickly and play a lot of tournaments, so it was no problem at all. There was just one specific hand with Phil Ivey, but apart from that, all went smoothly.”
