€2,500 PLO High Roller, €100K Gtd.

Welcome to Day 1 of the €2,500 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller at King's

Poker Room King's Resort and Casino

Live poker tournaments are back in one of Europe's biggest card rooms and the first major tournament with a six-digit prize pool will kick off today at 8 p.m. local time at the King's Resort and Casino in Rozvadov, host of the World Series of Poker Europe in the last few years.

The past few days and weeks already saw some smaller events kick off and the VIP Invitational with €100,000 in guaranteed prizes currently plays down to a champion. All four-card lovers will battle for at least the same amount in cash prizes but it would not be a surprise to see a decent field emerge in the €2,500 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller, which is slated to determine a winner this weekend.

Day 1 will be a rather short affair as only six levels of 30 minutes are foreseen and the late registration will be available in the early stages of Day 2 when the action gets back underway at 2 p.m. local time on Sunday, June 21st 2020 with another four levels of 30 minutes to take a shot at the PLO action.

Several big names are expected to take part in the tournament such as the WSOP bracelet winners Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier and Jan-Peter Jachtmann, former football striker Sergej Barbarez, Tony G, Harry Casagrande, and cash game player Yusuf Kurt who won the €2,000 PLO event at the 2014 Poker EM.

All players will start with 50,000 in chips and the level duration for the entire tournament is set to 30 minutes each. Unlimited re-entries are available throughout the first ten levels and and action of the final day will also be streamed at some point. Poker fans from all over the world can already enjoy NLHE cash game action today on the King's Resort Twitch channel.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor to provide updates from start to finish
