The Dutch Poker Classics Heads to King's Casino Sept. 20-24
There are many big events taking place at King's Casino in the coming months including the WSOP Circuit Sept. 28 to Oct. 18 where 14 WSOP gold rings will be awarded followed by the WSOP Europe Oct. 19 to Nov. 10 where 11 WSOP gold bracelets will be handed out.
This doesn't mean you need to wait until then to head to King's Casino as there are festivals taking place every week at the location that are suited to recreational players with their reasonable buy-ins.
One such festival is the Dutch Poker Classics taking place from Sept. 20-24 that features a healthy dose of tournaments with buy-ins ranging from €40 to €600.
Dutch Poker Classics Details
The highlight of the festival is the Dutch Poker Classics Main Event that features a generous €100,000 prize pool for just a €175 entry fee.
The tournament is deep-stacked with players starting off with 50,000 in chips and blind levels increasing every 40 minutes on each of the four opening flights on Sept. 21-23. Players will have plenty of chances to get back into the action if eliminated with two re-entries allowed for each opening flight and two separate flights taking place on Sept. 23.
Players bagging chips will compete for one final day on Sept. 24 until a winner is crowned.
Those looking to save a few bucks on the entry fee of the Main Event can potentially qualify into the tournament through satellites held at the casino that cost just €40 during the festival.
In addition to the Main Event and the side events, King's Casino will be hosting cash games at limits low and high running 24 hours a day throughout the festival.
