WSOP Europe is now in full swing at King’s Casino, Rozvadov where regulars of poker in India are thriving at the event. The latest Indian pro to make headlines at the event was Sumit Sapra, who finished 15th in Event #6: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha, pocketing €4,121.
India’s Sumit Sapra was also in contention in Event #6 having made Day 2, and he made his deep run count. Unfortunately, he could not make it to the final table and bowed out at 15th place.
Allen Kessler surged into the heads-up holding the chip lead but was soon reduced to the short stack. He battled furiously against eventual winner Lukas Zaskodny to survive and then found a much-needed double up to get back into the game. However, Kessler couldn't go all the way as he found himself in a bad spot when all he had deuces full of jacks against Zaskodny's jacks full. The river offered no hope leaving Kessler with the runner-up prize.

1. Lukas Zaskodny - €93,677
2. Allen Kessler - €57,897
