Preparations for our very first PokerNews Cup of the year are already under way as we count down to a fantastic tournament in Salzburg, Austria. Hosted by the Concord Card Casino, the PokerNews Cup Austria will be held from April 23-27 and will feature a €650 Main Event alongside two additional side events. Over 300 European players are expected at the Main Event and we guarantee some non stop poker action through out the tournament.
PokerNews continues to reward its faithful players by teaming up with PokerStars to give you eight €3,000 PokerNews Cup Austria Freerolls. The best part? Each freeroll rewards not one, but the top two finishers with a €1,500 package each. In total, PokerStars will be sending 16 players to this fantastic event for absolutely nothing! Each package winner will receive buy-in to the Main Event (valued at €650) plus €850 cash for travel and accommodation. In addition, you will receive full membership to Team PokerNews, access to exclusive merchandise and a special invite to our Team PokerNews Welcome Party.
