CSPT: Cintula wins in Ostrava
Over the past six or seven years of writing about poker, I've been looking for the perfect opportunity to use the phrase "Czech-raise."
Now, I have it.
If you've not been paying close attention, you might have missed PokerStars kicking off another regional poker tour. The Czech-Slovak Poker Tour kicked off in Prague last summer.
This weekend, it crowned its second champion.
Twenty-three year old Andrej Cintula went to Ostava this weekend and beat out nearly 90 other players for the $19,000 fist prize.
A student originally from Slovak Republic, Cintula used to lived in the United States.It led him to poker and eventually back home where he became a champion.
Among the top 12 money-winners in the event was PokerStars online qualifier Franciscus Dekkers. He finished in eighth place for a CZK 18,333 finish.
The CSPT has a couple of more stops in Brno and Bratislava in the next few months.
