Five Bracelet Winners in Contention for €100,000 King's Super High Roller Showdown

Dominik Nitsche

The stage is set for the final table of the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe Event #9: €100,000 No-Limit Hold'em King's Super High Roller, and eight players out of a 95-entry strong field remain. The guaranteed prize pool of €5,000,000 was nearly doubled and the lion's share of the €9,025,000 prize pool is still for grabs, along with the second-last gold bracelet at the festival in Europe's biggest poker arena at the King's Casino in Rozvadov.

Best-positioned to further cement his spot in WSOP history is German High Roller regular Dominik Nitsche, who may win his fifth bracelet and holds a comfortable lead over the other seven finalists. After dominating the late stages of Day 2, Nitsche bagged up 53,125,000 and he is followed by Mikita Badziakouski (32,200,000) and Martin Kabrhel (24,675,000). Badziakouski has had a stellar year thus far with two victories in Triton Poker High Roller Events, while Martin Kabrhel will aim to collect a second WSOP bracelet on home soil.

Jan-Eric Schwippert (23,100,000) and Julian Thomas (19,925,000), both regular faces on the High Roller circuit, will aim to win their maiden bracelet. David Peters (15,275,000), Michael Addamo (12,450,000) and Adrian Mateos (10,225,000) already know what that feels like and especially Addamo will enter the final table full with confidence. Earlier this summer, he won his maiden WSOP bracelet and followed that up with a second victory in Event #8: €25,500 No-Limit Hold'em Super High Roller.
