Colman, Boeree, Cates, Danzer, and Others to Play Celebrity Cash Kings on April 26
Right before the European Poker Tour Grand Final kicks off in Monaco, the King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, will welcome some of the world's best poker players for what promises to be a truly sensational cash game.
On April 26 and 27, an amazing lineup will gather at Europe’s biggest poker room to play in the Celebrity Cash King's, an exclusive cash game that will be live streamed right here on PokerNews.com.
Among the confirmed participants are Daniel Colman, Liv Boeree, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates, Max Altergott, Igor Kurganov, George Danzer, and Philipp Gruissem.
The players will also be joined by the owner of King's Casino and high-stakes cash-game regular Leon Tsoukernik, the Moscow-born entrepreneur who earlier this year won a European Poker Award as the 2014 Industry Person of the Year.
According to the King's Casino, the plan is to play €50/€100 no-limit Texas hold'em. However, the casino did not rule out the possibility of increasing the blinds or switching to pot-limit Omaha, provided all players agree of course.
Right after the end of the event, the players will board a private jet and fly to Monaco for the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo. PokerNews will be in Monte Carlo to live report three events — €100,000 Super High Roller (April 30-May 3), €10,600 Main Event (May 2-9), and €25,500 High Roller (May 6-9).
The Celebrity Cash Kings event marks a new step in cooperation between the King's Casino and Raising for Effective Giving (REG), the charitable organization founded by Boeree, Gruissem, and Kurganov to raise money for charity through poker. As explained by King's Casino, the relationship between the casino room and REG will include a number of other future initiatives including a series of tournaments to be held in July 2015 where all the rake will be donated to REG's supported charities.
