  • Looking for a reason to head to the 2017 PokerNews Cup? Here are six of them.

The PokerNews Cup is celebrating its 11th birthday this year, and while we may be a little biased in our opinion of this great tournament, we believe that the PokerNews Cup is the best tournament in Europe. Bear with us while we give you six reasons why this is the case.

Firstly, there is a €255,000 guaranteed prize pool despite the fact the tournament only costs €250 to enter, or even less if you manage to win your way in via one of the satellites running at TonyBet Poker. Such a significant prize pool for an affordable buy-in attracts an eclectic mix of recreational and professional poker players alike, which leads to a fantastic atmosphere and gives you the opportunity to put your skills to the test.

If the PokerNews Cup Main Event doesn’t go to plan, you don’t have to head to the airport right away because there are 11 different tournaments to get your teeth into. Check out the table below:

If busting from the PokerNews Cup or one of the 11 tournaments on offer makes you want to shy away from MTTs, you can always get your poker fix from the non-stop cash games. The cash games at King’s Casino are renowned all over the world, and with stakes available from low buy-ins right up to nosebleed stakes, you’ll find your level that you're comfortable with.

All of this action takes place in what is the largest poker room in Europe, which gives you the full-on Las Vegas experience without the need to travel halfway around the world to be part of it. You’ll instantly fall in love with your lavish surroundings and the chirping of riffling chips when the room is full is something that will stay with you.

Away from the tables, you can tantalize your taste buds at the free — yes, free — all-you-can-eat buffet. You may think that the food will be poor quality if it is free, but the chefs and cooks at King’s Casino pride themselves on using the best ingredients and they use them to knock up some tasty dishes.

Finally, you can wash down your free buffet with the open bar. While we wouldn’t suggest drinking alcohol while playing in the PokerNews Cup because it could impair your judgement, others will almost certainly taking advantage of the open bar during play so your task of winning the 11th PokerNews Cup could be made a little easier by them.
