End the Year With the German Poker Tour at King's Casino Dec. 25-30
King's Casino, located on the German border in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, will cap off an amazing year of poker with the German Poker Tour (GPT) Christmas Edition on Dec. 25-30.
The highlight of the poker festival is the €299 GPT Main Event featuring a huge €200,000 guaranteed prize pool. The tournament provides plenty of chance to accumulate a big stack with players beginning with 50,000 in chips and blind levels increasing every 45 minutes on each of the three opening flights on Dec. 26-28.
Additionally, players can reenter each flight once and even if they bag chips can try for a bigger stack with the tournament allowing players to bring forth their biggest stack to Day 2 on Dec. 29. Surviving players will then compete for one final day on Dec. 30 until a winner is declared.
Players looking to save on the €299 Main Event buy-in can compete in three €70 qualifiers, each guaranteeing 10 seats, on Dec. 26-28.
In addition to the Main Event there are plenty of lucrative side events on the schedule including the €115 Christmas Deepstack with a €20,000 guarantee on Dec. 25, the €115 King's Hold'em Championship NLH with a €10,000 guarantee on Dec. 26, the €115 King's Hold'em Championship with a €15,000 guarantee on Dec. 27, the €110 King's Hold'em Championship with a €20,000 guarantee on Dec. 28 and the €110 King's Local Championship with a €20,000 guarantee on Dec. 29.
