Tsoukernik is known for his loose aggressive style in live cash games and tournaments. Sometime back, he took down the Velden ‘EM Super High Roller title in Austria after re-entering the event 7 times. The final re-entry was worth it as he walked out of the event with the champion’s trophy and the top prize of €370,000 ($432,819).
At the event in context, Leon busted online poker geniuses like ‘mczhang’ (6th place) and ‘Chelsea72’ (3rd place) to claim the trophy. In the heads-up, Tsoukernik faced ‘helicopterben82’. But very soon, Leon busted ‘helicopterben82’ to become the winner. ‘helicopterben82’ settled for first runner-up for a significant $150,960 in cash.
This is just the second online tournament of Leon and going by that, the win is quite a benchmark. Post his win Tsoukernik said, “I’m so proud” after playing “a very tough 11 hours” from across the border in Germany – partypoker not yet available in Czech, although plans are apparently afoot to change that”.
Post this win, Leon can now participate in the upcoming WSOP Europe at his casino in Rozvadov with adequate bankroll to invest at the events.

Along with Leon’s marvelous win, the event also witnessed a deep run by partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘plenopads’ Leonard. Although he played remarkably, he missed the final table and had to settle for the 11th place cashing $18,156.
