The European Poker Tour has had plenty of High Roller events now, and it's fair share of Super High Roller events as well. But today it's time for something new; a one-day €50,000 Super High Roller turbo event!
Blind levels will be 30 minutes, the starting stack will be 200,000, and players have up till level 8 (around 17:00 local time) to register and/or use their option to re-enter when going bust.
The idea for this tournament originates in Prague where the players talked about it with PokerStars' live event specialist Neil Johnson. It was Bryn Kenney who was really excited about the prospect of playing a one-day tournament with a €50,000 buy-in, and everyone seemed to agree it was a great idea.
Rich Monacan (hello pleonasm!) businessmen might not be ready to take three full days off for a regular €100,000 High Roller, let alone clear their busy agenda for an entire week to play the Main Event, but taking one leisure day to play some cards should be possible right?
As the title of the event indicates, action will be fast paced. PokerNews.com will be your source of information today, as we'll bring you everything you need to know from the first flop till the last river. Get ready for action, the first cards will be dealt at 12:30 local time!
The structure for this one-day vent is as followed:
|Level||Small Blind||Big Blind||Ante|
|registration closes||(around 17:00)|
|75-minute break||(around 19:30)|
