Vladimir Demidov Wins Big at Cash Game Festival Bratislava

It was another spectacular day at the Cash Game Festival Bratislava at Banco Casino Bratislava with players enjoying themselves on and away from the poker tables.

The day began for many with an 80 kilometer trip to the Elesko Restaurant & Wine Bar for a tour including wine and cheese tasting, a visit of the gallery, and of course a scrumptious three-course meal with a lot more wine.

The poker was also running all day long, and the action was still going strong as the sun came up.

As has been the case the entire festival, Cash Game Festival co-commentators Henry Kilbane and George Sandford hosted two streams live on the Cash Game Festival Twitch channel and embedded in our coverage at PokerNews. The action was loose and lively on both.

Two-time World Series of Poker Circuit gold ring winner Eyal Bensimhon from Austria finished the best on the early €2/€5 feature table after notching a profit of €1,780 (356 big blinds). Cash Game Festival Co-Founder Martin "Franke" von Zweigbergk was among the players at the table pushing for action along with American Michael Mirharooni who also played the late game.

The player that wins the most big blinds at a single feature table will walk away from the festival as the Cash Game Festival Bratislava champion. Along with the honors, this player will be awarded a trophy and a hospitality package to the next Cash Game Festival at Olympic Park Casino in the Estonian capital of Tallinn on April 25-29.

Before the late €5/€10 no-limit feature table began, Russia's Vladimir Demidov shared that he really wanted to win the trophy. He is in good shape and was the star of the day after he won €4,614 (461.4 big blinds).

His massive win at the late feature table was just better than that of the one by Karol Masarovic last night after he won €4,557 (455.7 big blinds) at €5/€10 no-limit hold'em.
