The 2014 Master Classics of Poker (MCOP) began last Friday, and tomorrow starts the biggest and baddest event of the series — the €4,250 Main Event.
Headlined by 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event third-place finisher and MCOP ambassador Jorryt van Hoof, this year's MCOP Main Event will take place Nov. 25-28. Van Hoof will be joined by several other top players as they battle it out at Holland Casino Amsterdam for the right to be called this year's champion. Last year, Noah Boeken topped a field of 298 entries to earn the €306,821 top prize.
PokerNews will be on hand to provide live coverage of the Main Event, and our team will be on the ground floor from the first pitch of the cards to the final river card.
The MCOP Main Event dates back to 1993 and has a rich history of winners including Surinder Sunar (1993), Johan Storakers (2003), Robert Mizrachi (2004), Trond Eidsvig (2007), and Ole Schemion (2012), with the largest first-place prize coming in 2006 when Ali Jalali won the event for a massive €700,000.
