Just like that, another week is in the books and we're back with another installment of This Week in Tournament Poker. What's on the slate for this week? A bunch of events that wrapped up in Europe, that's what. The Chilipoker Deepstack Open wrapped up in Vilamoura and the PokerStars Prague Open took place in Prague.
