PokerStars Festival Rozvadov: Main Event final table player profiles
Get to know a bit more about our final table players, including their position and chip counts at the beginning of this final table:
Chips: 4.34 million
Slovakia's Stanislav Koleno is one of the more accomplished live tournament players left in the field, with a resume that boasts $389,247 earnings. His biggest cash came only last month, when he finished second in the Czech Republic's €700 No Limit Hold'em Premier Million for an incredible €160,000. That means that even if he won this Main Event, it wouldn't be his biggest score! Koleno also has plenty of cashes from Eureka and Estrellas events, as well as a win in a 2015 WSOP circuit event here in Rozvadov for €49,781.
Chips: 5.215 million
Another player hailing from Slovakia, Marián Flešár has $66,419 in career earnings. His biggest cash, from a tournament in Nottingham back in October 2016, was for £24,360, but he also has more than a dozen smaller cashes to his name.
Chips: 6.355 million
Germany's Michael Rohde has just one poker cash to date (a fifth place finish in a weekly tournament held in Rozvadov, good for €1,732), meaning whatever happens on this final table he'll be walking away with the biggest score of his poker life.
Chips: 5.01 million
Hungary's Péter Kamarás has had an incredible run in this event. He ended Day 1A with the chip lead, came into Day 2 with the chip lead, and came into this third and final day with the chip lead too. It's clear to see why when you see he has won $465,000 in live tournaments to date. Kamarás' cashes spread all around the world, but his biggest include a fourth-place finish in the IPT1 Nora Gorica Main Event (€57,000); another fourth-place finish in the IPT2 Nora Gorica Main Event (€55,000); and a third-place finish in the 2015 Barcelona Poker Cup at EPT12 (€46,900). A win today would give him a new career best.
Chips: 5.92 million
Belgium's Oguz Cenk also has career earnings in the six figures, with $218,000 and counting. His largest score came at the 2011 Euregio Poker Challenge, in which he finished second for €20,010. Other cashes come from a variety of different tours, mostly held in his native country.
Chips: 1.9 million
There are no recorded live cashes from native Czech player Jan Stariat, but he clearly knows what he's doing; you don't navigate your way through a 1,123-strong field without a trick or two up your sleeve. Stariat is an online player who's relatively new to live poker, and won his entry into this event for just €82 on PokerStars. What a spin-up!
Chips: 1.285 million
Czech player Petr Svoboda cashed an event earlier in this PokerStars Festival - a €550 PLO tournament - for €1,173. That brought his live winnings up to $13K, so even if he goes out in eighth tonight he'll have more than doubled that total in one single score.
Michal Jan Lubas
Chips: 3.575 million
Poland's Michal Jan Lubas' poker career really got a kickstart at EPT13 Barcelona when he finished third in the PokerStars cup for €60,200. That's his biggest win to date, contributing the vast majority to his $68,897 total earnings. Four of his five cashes have come from PokerStars events.
