In a PokerNews first, the next leg of our flagship event moves to a five star luxury ski resort atop the Austrian Alps in Saalbach-Hinterglemm – one of Europe's most majestic mountains.
"It is our aim to take poker tournaments to the next level by providing qualifiers and guests with more than just a poker tournament," says PokerNews Ltd CEO, Damon Rasheed. "As such, PokerNews is delighted to have the next leg of the PokerNews Cup held at The Alpine Palace, the most exclusive venue to ever host a poker tournament."
The 2009 PokerNews Cup Alpine will feature a series of eight events running across March 21-28, featuring a €10,100 High Rollers Event filled with all of The G's best mates, plus a €1,500 Main Event set to draw some of Europe's finest.
Guests and participants will enjoy in-between-table-time unique to no other tournament including unparalleled views of Central Europe from the resort, all day ski passes, spa passes and much more.
Our experienced Live Reporting Team will be flying across the world to report at this exclusive location ensuring all the action is documented on and off the felt.
PokerNews is set to give away over €400,000 in packages which include private helicopter transfers from the airport to the resort, main event entry, accommodation, ski passes for everyday of the event, spa passes, invites to parties and cash for travel.
