EPT Monte Carlo Highroller Event – Kurzinterview mit Leon Tsoukernik

Leon Tsoukernik oder einfach nur Leon. Unter diesem Namen kennt man den Besitzer des King’s Casino Rozvadov. Zumeist an den Cashgame Tischen anzutreffen, ganz, ganz selten auch am Turniertisch. Das € 100.000 Super Highroller Event der PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Monte Carlo ist ein solcher seltener Moment. Wir haben die Dinnerbreak genutzt, um kurz mit Leon zu telefonieren.

PF: Mr Tsoukernik, you are playing the super high roller event in Monte Carlo. You are not a regular on the poker circuit. Why did you choose this event?

LT: I like Monte Carlo. I come here on a regular basis to play in the Gran Casino. This is the first time a poker tournament really attracts me a lot. I’m pretty excited about this event. Competing with the best oft he game is a challenge I love to take and I’m pretty much a gambler.

PF: A gambler whoe runs a casino and a card room? How does this fit together?

LT: Perfect. I know exactly what a gambler needs, how to make him feel comfortable. On my gambling trips I’m treated with VIP services and all that stuff. In my casino everybody is a VIP. This makes the rule of thumb in my business.

PF: How is the event running for you so far?

LT: It is still early. I was slightly up the first few levels to 290k and lost some back the last levels before the dinner break. I now have 125k which is half starting stack. We will see how the hands will be dealt after the break. Im feeling good. I won Pocket Aces today. Everything is possible.

PF: What about your table?

LT: I have a lot of interesting players at my table. Tony G is sitting there and Philip Gruissem which I know from a big cash game in Prague. I would like to see these people in my card room. I’m thinking about hosting such an event for the next GCOP. Also for our regular customers. So they get a chance to meet up with all these stars.

PF: A 100k Super High Roller?

LT: Probably not that big. We will see. If there are enough people interested we will get it running for sure. Everything is possible.

PF: Thank you for that quick word.

Leon findet offenbar doch Gefallen am Turnierspiel. Letztes Jahr spielte er bei der CAPT Innsbruck sein erstes Turnier und wurde Zweiter. Folgt man den Updates in seinem Facebook-Account, so lässt sich doch deutlich erkennen, dass 100k Buy-In nichts alltägliches sind – selbst für einen Casinobesitzer.
