WSOPC King's Casino Main Event Starts April 7
The 2017 WSOP International Circuit King's Casino Rozvadov poker festival is fully underway at King's Casino located on the border of Germany in the Czech Republic with a handful of players already winning coveted WSOP Circuit gold rings.
The highlight of the festival is the WSOP International Circuit King's Casino Rozvadov €1,650 Main Event, which features a mouth-watering €1,000,000 guarantee.
The tournament is a deepstacked affair with players starting off the two opening days April 7-8 with 30,000 chips and blinds increasing every 45 minutes. Players can reenter the tournament once each day. Blinds will be at 300/600 with an ante of 100 on the 12th and final level of each opening day.
Players bagging chips will join those that reentered before the start of Day 2 on April 9. The tournament will play until a winner is crowned on April 10. Both of these days will allow for even more play with blinds increasing every 60 minutes.
Those looking to pay less than the €1,650 buy-in are in luck as King's Casino is hosting a handful of satellites starting at just €110.

Three WSOP Festivals This Season at King's Casino
The upcoming poker festival marks the second WSOP International Circuit stop at King's Casino during the 2016-2017 season. Croatia's Ivan Banic outlasted a field of 856 entrants to win the €232,241 top prize and a WSOP Circuit gold ring during the WSOP Circuit International King's Casino Rozvadov Main Event in November.
The final WSOP stop at King's Casino this season will be the biggest yet. In September, the WSOP Europe will make its first stop in Rozvadov and will return again two years later in 2019. Thanks to a multi-year deal inked in October, the WSOP will be making at least two visits per seasons until the 2020-2021 season.
“King’s is a huge partner of the WSOP and we are thrilled with the huge turnout for all the events have had there," WSOP Director Gregory Chochon said. "To think just two year’s ago King’s was hosting the very first WSOP event in the Czech Republic on the German border at Rozvadov. This year they host three including the WSOP Europe in late September!”
