High Rollers Set Eyes on Tonybet OFC World Championship Bracelets

High Rollers Set Eyes on Tonybet OFC World Championship Bracelets 0001

Tonybet Poker has just presented the spectacular trophies which will be rewarded to the winners of the High Roller and the Main Event of the first-ever Open-Face Chinese Poker World Championship starting next week in Prague.

The site officials have also announced that some of the biggest poker high rollers will be playing the event which all poker fans will be able to enjoy on live stream.

"It’s true, you’ll see some of the best-known poker names at our open-face Chinese (OFC) tables," a Tonybet Poker spokesperson explained. "Ten prominent High Rollers have already confirmed they’ll be playing the 10K Euro event, with our regular Alexander Kostritsyn as well as a number of other big names among them."

The site has also released the footage of the unique bracelets it’s going to reward the winners of both events (see the video below).

"Poker is a big game, and we want to grant our winners with 'bracelets' symbolizing the size of it. They’re really special, and I’m not just saying that. None of the poker events have ever rewarded anything like it. The trophies themselves are worth playing for."

The spokesperson has also confirmed that the Tonybet World Championship will be the first-ever open-face Chinese poker event to be filmed and streamed live on the biggest poker media sites.

"The live stream of both the High Roller and the Main Event will be available on our live blog as well as on some of the biggest poker media sites. This is the first time anyone’s doing this and we’re very proud to be the pioneers of streaming OFC poker live."

The list of participants for the OFC Poker World Championship Main Event already features more than 30 online qualifiers and should grow even bigger in the next few days.

"We're expecting to raise this number even more as we’re giving away live event tickets every day now at our online tables. Satellites and qualifiers are running in full speed and they will continue to do so up until Thursday. We will also host a live €120 last minute satellite on December 8th at the King’s Casino Prague rewarding five more seats to the Main Event," the spokesperson said.
