The Big Wrap is Heaven for PLO Players at King's Resort on April 1-8
Many poker players are already battling it out in the WSOP International Circuit that started March 14 and runs through April 1 at King's Resort, located on the German border in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.
Many of these players will likely stay another week at King's Resort with many pot-limit Omaha enthusiasts joining them with the casino hosting the inaugural The Big Wrap on April 1-8.
The Big Wrap features two big pot-limit Omaha tournaments with combined guarantees of €1.2 million. To put this into perspective, this is more than the WSOP International Circuit €1,700 Main Event guarantees for no-limit hold'em players.
€200,000 Guaranteed Warmup
The festival kicks off with a bang with players competing for a share of at least €200,000 guaranteed in The Big Wrap €550 Warmup PLO on April 1-5. The three opening flights with players starting with 30,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 30 minutes will see plenty of players bagging chips. Unlimited reentries are permitted during the first ten blind levels of each starting day.
Players will enjoy a deeper structure of 45-minute blind levels for the final two days of play on April 4-5.
Those looking to save a few bucks will have plenty of opportunities to do so with three €75 satellites guaranteeing a combined 30 seats.
€1 Million Guaranteed Main Event
The Big Wrap Main Event on April 5-8 is certainly one that both PLO players and fans via the live stream will want to keep their eyes on. The event boasts a juicy €1 million guarantee for a buy-in of €2,350.
The tournament is an eight-max affair with players starting with a stack of 100,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 40 minutes during the two opening flights on April 5-6.
Players can reenter up until the end of the late registration period that closes after the conclusion Level 14.
