Hungarian poker pro Marton Czuczor has been travelling around the European Poker Tour circuit for more than six years. The 27-year-old from Bucharest has notched up six cashes in EPT Main Events but this is his debut on the final table.
Before EPT13 Prague, Czuczor had already come close to making the finale twice, finishing 11th at both EPT7 Vilamoura (for €20,486) and EPT8 Barcelona (for €36,000). He currently sits at 15th place on the Hungarian all-time money list with $655k in live cashes.
Czuczor‘s biggest payday was €105,000 for a runner-up finish in the EPT10 Barcelona €2k NL Hold'em Event. Czuczor is the ninth Hungarian to make an EPT final. However, none have managed to become champion so far. Denes Kalo was the closest to a title, finishing second in both of his final table appearances.
Czuczor is certainly capable of winning a large tournament; he's proved that in the online realm, where he has both a PokerStars Sunday 500 & Super Tuesday title to his name.
