The partypoker Grand Prix Germany provides a great way to win big for a small buy-in. The tournament features a relatively small €225/$240 buy-in and guarantees a huge €500,000 prize pool at a minimum.
The tournament features three opening days online at partypoker with another seven days live at King's Casino, located in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, just minutes away from the German border. The casino boasts the largest poker room in Europe and promises to run plenty of cash games at a variety of limits throughout the tournament.
The first online Day 1 was April 9, with two more opening days scheduled for April 16 and 23. The first two live Day 1s are on April 16 and 23. The remaining five live opening days run one per day April 27-30.
Players on all opening days start off with 30,000 chips and 10 blind levels. Blinds start off at 75/150 giving players a huge 200 blind deep stack to start the tournament.
The online opening days offer a 12-minute blind structure. All but one of the live opening days offer a longer 30-minute blind level structure since hands are dealt a little slower in live play versus online play. The last of the live Day 1s features a turbo structure with blinds increasing every 15 minutes.
The online Day 1s have an additional advantage. The first 100 players to move onto Day 2 will be awarded a Golden Chip. The player among those holding Golden Chips who survives the longest in the rest of the tournament will be awarded a cool €20,000 on top of whatever money they win from the prize pool.
Players are also invited to play multiple Day 1s. If bagging chips on more than one opening day, players will bring their largest stack to Day 2 April 30. The tournament will play down to a winner on the final day on May 1. Both Day 2 and Day 3 take place live at King's Casino.
