Two seasons ago here in Rozvadov, Martin Meciar became the first Slovakian to win the Eureka Main Event. Now it's David Urban who'll try to succeed his fellow countryman, having made the final table. Urban lies in fifth place on his nation's all-time money list, just behind Meciar.
Urban's live tournament winnings exceed $300,000 and the list of his cashes includes a mix of various flags. Urban has cashed as far as in Australia (4th in the A$1k Six Max at last year's Aussie Millions) but for his biggest prize, he didn't have to travel those thousands of miles. Back in July 2014, he won the CAPT Velden Open in Vienna, bringing €50,000 back home from Austria.
