This Week in Tournament Poker: Chilipoker Deepstack Open, PokerStars Prague Open and More
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. Divonne, France, was home to the France Poker Series, and the Austrian Classics 2010 was held in Vienna.
We'll kick things off with the Chilipoker Deepstack Open, €550 No-Limit Hold'em event that attracted 335 entrants. Trung Moc walked away with the title and €35,000 for his win. The final table included participants from the home country of Portugal along with Finland, Spain, France and England.
