King's Cup Turbo Edition to Kick Off At King's Casino in Rozvadov on Sept. 3
Earlier this month, PokerStars announced that the PokerStars King's Cup Turbo Edition will kick off at King's Casino in Rozvadov from Sept. 3-6, 2015.
Like in the previous editions of the event, the King's Cup will feature the a €550 Main Event with a €200,000 guaranteed prize pool that will run alongside a number of action-packed side events. The Main Event will feature four Day 1s and give players the opportunity to reenter in the tournament once on each starting day, giving everyone up to eight bullets to make Day 2.
The four-day festival will also offer other interesting events such as a €1,100 High Roller running from Sept. 5-6 and a €220 Deepstack Freezeout EPT Turbo Edition that promises to heat up the action at Europe's biggest casino room on Sept. 6.
To spice things up, PokerStars has decided to introduce something new in the format, something that they've never tried before.
"In an exciting twist, the entire festival will be played out in turbo format for the first time in PokerStars history — guaranteeing fast and furious poker action at the tables all weekend long," the poker room stated.
