MTV’s Cribs show is still hugely popular because it gives the everyday person an insight into how the world’s richest and most famous celebrities live. French poker grinder and social media personality Johan Guilbert, known under his alias “YoH Viral”, is obviously a fan of the show based on the fact he posted a Cribs-type video to his YouTube-channel this week.
King’s Resort owner Leon Tsoukernik is the man featured in Guilbert’s video. You will not believe the size of his garage, what can simply be described as the ultimate “man cave”, housing a dozen cars alone!
Tsoukernik has a taste for the finer things in life and some ultra-rare luxury cars are found throughout the vast garage. They include a pair of Ferrari’s, a Lamborghini, a McLaren, several limited-edition Mercedeses and, of course, a Rolls Royce to top it off. There is even room for Tsoukernik’s private helicopter to be shielded from a rainy Czech afternoon.
Make sure to watch the 15-minute video below and keep reading to find out more about the boss himself.

Art Collection Now Includes an NFT
Complementing a vast and enviable car collection are Tsoukernik’s modern art pieces. Tsoukernik informed Guilbert that he recently purchased an NFT and is awaiting delivery so he can display it alongside his other pieces of artwork.
Tsoukernik’s career started in Canada in 1991 when he worked as an assistant in an antique business; it’s where his love of fine art and antiques began. Within two years, Tsoukernik had relocated back to Prague and opened two antique stores to complement the two he had in Washington D.C and New York City.
His successful antiques business led Tsoukernik, who speaks eight languages, to purchase some land in Rozvadov in 2002, which is where he built his own casino. King’s Casino Rozvadov officially opened in June 2003, and by 2009, Tsoukernik transformed it into a poker-orientated venue instead of a traditional casino crammed full of slots, blackjack, and roulette. He states that he values every customer the same regardless of whether they play poker, slots, or are simply enjoying a cup of coffee.
Tsoukernik’s casino has continually grown to the point he now employs 630 staff in Rozvadoz, and has enough tables to accommodate 1,300 players at any one time. King’s is, of course, the home of the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE), hosts regular WSOP Circuit events, among the poker room’s many other festivals and series.
King’s averages at least three poker tournaments per day every day across the year and is, without a doubt, the biggest poker room in all of Europe.
Atrium at Hilton Becomes King’s Casino, Hosts EPT Prague
In addition to King’s Resort Rozvadov, Tsoukernik owns King’s Casino Prague, formerly the Atrium Casino at the Hilton Prague Hotel, which happens to be where the upcoming PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Prague festival takes place.
