CZECH MATE

TOMAS JUNEK WINS $1,500 BUY-IN NO-LIMIT HOLD’EM (EVENT #56)


 
Las Vegas, NV (July 4, 2012) – Tomas Junek won the latest World Series of Poker tournament, held at the Rio in Las Vegas.

He topped a huge field of 2,798 players.

He won $661,022.

He won a WSOP gold bracelet.

Other than that, it was pretty much a normal day for Mr. Junek.

The latest WSOP champ is a 23-year-old Czech poker player from a town called Prestavlky – which, one might guess, just crowned it’s first WSOP champion.

Perhaps Martin Staszko, the runner up of last year’s WSOP Main Event, still holds the distinction of being the the biggest WSOP money earner from the Czech Republic.  But on this night, his fellow countryman did one better --- actually winning the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.  

First place paid $661,022.
