Tony G wins more than €1,000,000 in a single cash game session at the WSOP Europe

While Daniel Negreanu, Shaun Deeb, Espen Jorstad and thousands more were chasing WSOP Europe gold, Lithuanian poker legend Tony G was walking off with a cool €1,000,000 from one single session after a good night in the high stakes cash games at the WSOP Europe in Rozvadov.

With King’s Casino boss, Leon Tsoukernik, hosting and playing in the game, running up €1million  isn’t as crazy as it sounds, his nickname of “Loose Leon” guaranteeing action…

Tsoukernik’s “poker island” in the Czech Republic has long been the go-to place for highstakes cash games, the European version of High Stakes Poker or Hustler Casino Live, depending on who’s available.

This month, with the WSOP in town, the likes of Paul Phua, Elton Tsang and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospelier have been plying their skills, with Phua fresh off a gold bracelet win in the €25k High Roller.

Phua pocketed €482,433 for his win, but it’s not clear if he handed that over to Tony G in the cash game battles, or whether it was Loose Leon’s blind potting that gave him his €million payday.

What we do know is that it’s who you know, not what you know, that lets you live a life of luxury as a highstakes player, a smiling Tony heading home courtesy of Paul Phua’s private jet…

Daniel Negreanu’s WSOPE is over too, some deep runs but no 7th gold bracelet, while records have been broken at the €10k Main Event – 763 entries producing a €7,248,500 prizepool.

Shaun Deeb, Jack Sinclair, Barney Boatman and Orpen Kisacikoglu are among the big names with big stacks as day two dawns.
