France’s Corentin Ropert gained the weekend break a EUR25,000 Single Day High Roller at the continuous EPT Prague for his occupation’s biggest money of EUR277,560, the spade-shaped prize, and the stature that comes with an EPT high roller victor.
The player getting in the EUR25,000 occasion was a somewhat uncommon experience for him. Ropert generally plays events worth no greater than EUR2,000, but chose to try something different this moment around.
Ropert’s poker journey in Prague, where the most recent EPT festival of the year is currently occurring and is simply a day far from finishing up, did not begin well. The player had a somewhat lousy run during the festival’s initial stage and also as it proceeded, he lost a great deal of his inspiration to play.
After that, he checked out Thomas Boivin, the Belgian player that won the EUR25,000 Single Day High Roller that took place this past Thursday. Boivin satellited right into the high roller event to eventually take it down and collect EUR375,520. That was the second-ever EUR25,000 occasion the Belgian has ever played.
Reviewing his fellow player, Ropert believed to himself, possibly I can do that too? The player won a seat right into the EUR25K High Roller through a satellite to outlive its area of skilled high rollers as well as grab the lion’s share of the prize pool.
Ropert’s Flight to Victory
The Single Day High Roller happened on Saturday at the host place, Hilton Prague Hotel. The tournament drew 34 entries, including 5 re-entries, to create a prize swimming pool of EUR816,340. The top 6 finishers received a share of the prize swimming pool, min-cashes beginning with EUR57,140.
Moldova’s Pavel Plesuv, Germany’s Dietrich Fast, and Australia’s Michael Addamo, all seasoned poker pros, were among those to make it to the paid settings.
Ropert at some point dealt with Japanese player Tsugunari Toma heads-up. A winning hand of [Ah] [5h] locked up the victory for Ropert. As for Toma, he needed to go for the EUR191,840 as a consolation prize for his deep encounter the event.
Ropert’s first-place prize from the High Roller occasion stood for the player’s biggest cash from an online competition. His HendonMob profile reveals that he has actually cashed in 18 events over the course of his occupation, but none of those money came also close to the EUR277,560 payday he received in Prague over the weekend break.
Back in October, Ropert won a EUR1,000 buy-in All Poker Open Divonne les Bains occasion for a first-place reward of EUR30,336. He moneyed in another occasion previously this year. The player finished 4th in the Winamax SISMIX Marrakech Centerpiece, helpful for a prize money of $38,206. Including last evening’s payment, Ropert currently has greater than $530,000 in live tournament earnings.
