It seems just about every week there is a big week at Europe's largest poker room, King's Casino. Located on the border of Germany in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, the room is always bustling with games of every level.
Coming up, things will be getting even bigger at King's Casino with the return of the partypoker World Poker Tour National Rozvadov from July 28-Aug. 8.
The highlight of the festival is the partypoker WPTN Rozvadov Main Event, which features a €1,100 buy-in along with a €200,000 guaratneed prize pool. The tournament kicks off with two opening days on Aug. 5-6, and surviving players will compete on Day 2 on Aug. 7 and Day 3 on Aug. 8.
Last year's WPTN Rozvadov Main Event almost doubled the posted guarantee with 372 entrants generating a €362,780 prize pool. This year's event is expected to be bigger. Last time around, German poker pro Manig Loeser padded onto his $1.5 million in tournament winnings by winning for €76,000 ($82,906).
Players are expected to show up much earlier than the Main Event, too, considering the schedule kicks off with the WPT Starter on July 28. In that event, players will be competing for a €100,000 guaranteed prize pool for just a €200 buy-in.
While the poker festival is sure to attract some big names, low-stakes players will find plenty of tournaments on the schedule with tournament buy-ins starting at just €45. Additionally, there are plenty of live satellites for the Main Event and others.
Players do not need to wait until the tournament festival kicks off to try to win a satellite to the Main Event either, as partypoker is hosting qualifiers and sub-qualifiers starting at just $0.01. These feed into a tournament every Sunday where players can win a package valued at €1,800. That package includes a seat to the WPTN Rozvadov Main Event, six-nights hotel accommodations, and $300 in cash which can be used for travel expenses.
PokerNews Cup Returns to King's Casino Aug. 10-15
Straight after the WPTN Rozvadov poker festival, the PokerNews Cup is once again returning for the third time in two years to King's Casino. From Aug. 10-15, the 10th anniversary of the PokerNews Cup will take place.
The schedule will feature 11 exciting tournaments, highlighted by an amazing €250 Main Event that features a mouth-watering €200,000 guaranteed prize pool. The tournament features four opening flights from Aug. 11-13 before the surviving players compete for the title on Day 2 (Aug. 14) and Day 3 (Aug. 15).
