One of the most popular events may very well be the €220 Opening Event, not least because it has an impressive €150,000 guarantee. This tournament features four starting flights, the first taking place at 6 p.m. local time on Jan. 26 with subsequent Day 1s running on Jan. 27 and Jan. 29. Satellites to the opening event run at King’s Casino and only cost €50 to buy into.
Another tournament that is a must-play event is the €888 buy in Main Event, which guarantees at least €300,000 will be won. Day 1a commences at 6:00 p.m. on Feb. 2 with Day 1b starting at the same time on Feb. 3. The third and final starting flight shuffles up and deals at the slightly earlier time of 2 p.m. on Feb. 4 due to 888 expecting a much larger number of entrants entering on this day.
