Leon Tsoukernik takes down European Poker Championship at Casino Velden

The casino owner and high-stakes gambler fired seven bullets at the €25,000 tournament.

While the poker world is focusing on the ongoing Triton Super High Roller Series in Jeju, there is plenty of action going on in Austria as well.

A total of 26 players entered the €25,000 Super High Roller in Velden, Leon Tsoukernik amongst them. Leon had a pretty rough start as he needed to re-enter six times paying €180,250 altogether (€750 fee included).

He needed to finish at least 3rd to show a slight profit but eventually managed to be the last man standing and walked away with a €370,000 paycheck after defeating German pro, Manig Löser heads-up.

Final results

1 Leon Tsoukernik €370,000
