What To Expect in August and September for the PokerNews Cup

PokerNews Cup


  • Here's what to expect from the PokerNews Cup during August and September.

August and September are not only summer months for many parts of the world, they are also the months where the poker action is going to be hotter than the weather thanks to not one, but two, PokerNews Cups taking place.

The first of these awesome events takes place between August 11-15 at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.

King’s Casino is a superb venue for a poker tournament due to it being the home to the biggest poker room in Europe. Located a 90-minute drive from picturesque Prague, and only five minutes from the German border, reaching Rozvadov is a simple task. Once there, you are greeted with an venue that is open 24-hours a day, has free parking for those preferring to drive, and a world class all-you-can-eat buffet, plus an a la carte restaurant.

A total of 11 events are on the schedule with combined guaranteed prize pools of some €260,000.

€200,000 of those chunky guarantees is set aside for the €250 buy-in PokerNews Cup Main Event where players sit down with a generous stack of 30,000 chips, and play to 30-minute levels over four starting flights.

The clock increases to 45-minutes on Day 2 (August 14), then to 60-minutes for the final day (August 15), giving players more room to maneuver when it matters the most.

Although the €250 buy-in is at the more affordable end of the spectrum for a tournament, it is possible to win your way to the PokerNews Cup in Rozvadov via online and live satellites.

Online satellites take place at TonyBet Poker where you can secure a package worth €600 that awards your tournament buy-in, six nights accommodation at the King’s Casino, and €110 towards your expenses.

Those of you preferring live poker can head to the King’s Casino between August 11-13 where there are four €40 buy-in satellites that award at least five seats each to the PokerNews Cup Main Event.

PokerNews Cup Goes Stateside in September

After the continued success of the PokerNews Cup in Europe, we are packing up and boarding a flight to the United States in September where the PokerNews Cup makes its North American debut.

The two-day event begins on September 20, 2016, as part of the 14th annual Borgata Poker Open series at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, another iconic venue. Online satellites will be available for customers in New Jersey, and you can get a head start on qualifying at
