Find Out Who Tops King's Resort's All-Time Money List
Table Of Contents
King's Resort, Rozvadov made a name for itself as the largest card room in Europe, hosting some of the world's most prestigious poker festivals such as the World Series of Poker Europe, World Poker Tour and partypoker MILLIONS.
Some of the greatest poker players in the world have played at King's, but do you know who has won the most money at this popular European poker resort? We checked out the figures on The Hendon Mob and here's what we found!
10: Phil Ivey ($1,668,814)
There aren't many Top 10 lists in poker that will have Phil Ivey sitting at number ten, but that's where you'll find "No Home Jerome" on this one. With five cashes at King's totalling over $1.6m, that's nothing compared to his $28.6m in lifetime earnings.
However, Ivey is yet to add a win at King's to his poker resume, with two runner-up finishes in 2019 coming in the€50,000 and €100,000 Short Deck High Rollers at the World Series of Poker Europe.
9: Jack Sinclair ($1,883,262)
In the era of High Rollers, you'd think that a World Series of Poker Europe Main Event winner would feature more prominently on this list, but the €1.1m (~$1.2m) that Jack Sinclair won back in 2018 for winning the prestigious tournament and bracelet is enough for ninth place on the King's all-time money list.
In fact, his eight cashes are the second-most of any other player in the top ten - more on that later!
8: Tony G ($1,904,062)
Lithuanian Antanas Guoga, better known as Tony G, is closing in on $2m in earnings at King's Resort, helped by a fourth place in the 2019 WSOP Europe €250,000 Super High Roller for just under $900,000.
Guoga is one of the more consistent players on this list, with four of his five King's cashes coming in at over $250,000. The outlier? A 23rd place finish in the even Ivey cashed that event"]2019 WSOPE €2,500 Short Deck event. But not to worry, even Ivey cashed that event!
7: David Peters ($2,013,227)
David Peters narrowly missed out on the largest win of his career when he finished second in the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe €100,000 Super High Roller. However, the €1.6m (~$1.8m) he won in doing so is still good enough to see him seventh on this list.
Peters is a globe-trotting poker superstar, with his top four cashes all-time coming in fourth different countries - and three different continents!
6: Christoph Vogelsang ($2,968,253)
Another High Roller superstar comes next in the form of Christoph Vogelsang. Perhaps better known for winning the 2017 $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl, Vogelsang has also notched up four cashes at King's Resort.
They include a third-place finish in last year's World Series of Poker Europe €250,000 Super High Roller which earned him €1.1m (~$1.3m) and sixth spot on this list.
5: James Chen ($3,142,848)
James Chen proves that sometimes it is quality not quantity when it comes to winning the most money in poker, with his single cash at King's Resort coming last year in the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe €250,000 Super High Roller.
This was by far the biggest cash of Chen's poker career, more than tripling his previous highest cash as he defeated a 30-player field to win his first WSOP bracelet.
4: Mikita Badziakouski ($3,375,420)
One of seven players on this list with at least five cashes at King's Resort, Mikita Badziakouski has never finished lower than fourth with combined cashes of over $3.3m. His biggest cash came in the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe €111,111 High Roller for One Drop, but also cashed for over $1.2m in the space of two days back in 2018.
|Date||Event||Place||Payout (EUR)||Payout (USD)|
|24th October||WSOPE €25,500 High Roller||4th||€266,767||$305,950|
|26th October||WSOPE €100,000 Super High Roller||4th||€789,612||$899,658|
3: Chin Wei Lim ($4,370,153)
Chin Wei Lim has an astonishing record at King's Resort, so much so that he is the only player to record separate seven-figure cashes at the venue, and they came in the space of a week!
He first did it by finishing runner-up to James Chen in the 2019 WSOPE €250,000 Super High Roller, but then went one better by winning the 2019 WSOPE €100,000 Diamond High Roller. These two cashes combined gave him over $4.35m in cashes and when you throw in a handful of side event cashes from the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe, he is more than deserving of his place on this list.
2: Martin Kabrhel ($5,488,665)
With over 50 cashes to his name at the venue, including five WSOP Circuit rings and two WSOP Bracelets, there surely can't be another player who dominates a single venue like Kabrhel. But that still isn't enough for him to top the all time money list
1: Dominik Nitsche ($5,660,975)
With over $5.6m in live earnings at King's Resort, Dominik Nitsche is the all-time money list leader by just under $200,000. The 2017 World Series of Poker Europe €111,111 High Roller for One Drop champion took home €3.4m (~$4.0m) for that victory, but five other cashes mean that he holds top spot.
Nitsche has never finished lower than seventh in a poker tournament at King's, including three fifth-place finishes worth at least $225,000 in a row in October 2018.
