  • PokerNews Cup to celebrate its 10th Main Event in Rozvadov with €200k GTD Event

The PokerNews Cup returns to the King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, from August 10-15 with an all-new calendar of events highlighted by a €250 Main Event that features a whopping €200,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Back at Europe's largest poker room for the third time in two years, PokerNews' own live tournament series will celebrate its 10th edition with 11 events running alongside King's Casino world-famous cash games.

"We are extremely proud of what we have achieved in the past, but we know that the best has yet to come," iBus Media and PokerNews CEO Jon Squires said. "Eleven years after its inception, the PokerNews Cup is no longer the bold and ambitious bet it was. It is a well-established tournament series that allow small stakes and recreational players to discover the world professional tournament poker and access premium guarantees at an affordable cost.

"The 10th edition of the PokerNews Cup will be an event like no other. This is an important milestone and we want everyone to join us at the King's Casino for a celebration to remember. We want everything to enjoy every single second they spend with us and we promise to keep everyone busy with a lot of great tournaments as well as with one of the most glorious players' party that Rozvadov has ever seen.

"During the past two years we worked closely with the King's Casino to fine-tune each and every aspect of our events, and we are extremely happy to head back to Rozvadov once again and to associate our name to the best poker room in Europe."

"A Great Moment to Celebrate The Game We Love"

"We are happy to host the PokerNews Cup for the third consecutive time, especially since the tenth edition of the series carries significant symbolic value too," King's Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik said. "This event represents a great opportunity for low stakes players to discover the amazing feeling of being part of a truly professional and international live poker event and, as usual, we at King's are determined to do our best to make sure that everyone have a great time here in Rozvadov.

"King's and PokerNews are both committed to making the poker industry grow through excellence and the upcoming edition of the PokerNews Cup is a great chance for us all to celebrate the game we love and those who make it truly special: the players."

Tsoukernik, who once referred to the King's as "a casino cruise, on land," also explained that the PokerNews Cup will give everyone the opportunity to discover a whole new side of the casino, since a whole new hotel was just added to the gambling and entertainment complex.
