Czech Republic’s King’s Casino has built a reputation for itself for being one of the top casinos in Eastern Europe and is known for hosting a number of prestigious tournaments on a consistent basis. The casino also boasts the biggest poker room in Europe and constantly attracts some of the top European poker players in the world.
The casino recently announced that it will host the World Poker Tour National Rozvadov which will run from July 28 to August 8. The tournament is being sponsored by partypoker and is expected to attract a large player pool. The main attraction of the WPTN Rozvado will be the WPTN Rozvadov Main Event which has a €1,100 buy-in and a guaranteed prize pool of €200,000.
The 2015 edition of the WPTN Rozvado turned out to be a great success as the event attracted nearly twice the amount of players than what was originally expected and as a result the guaranteed prize pool almost doubled. The prize pool went up to €362,780 and German poker pro Manig Loeser won the Main Event and took home €76,000.
The casino which is located in Rozvado is situated on the border of Germany and as a result attracts a number of German poker players. The 2016 edition of the WPTN Rozvadov is expected to be even bigger than the 2015 edition as more players are expected to sign-up. Apart from the Main Event, there are a number of exciting events scheduled including some low stake events.
One of those events is the WPT Starter which takes place on July 28. There is a €200 buy-in for the event which comes with a guaranteed prize pool of €100,000. Event organizers have set up a number of low stake buy-ins starting at around €45 to enable as many poker players to participate. Poker player who are interested in participating in the Main Event but find the buy-in a bit too expensive, will be able to take part in live satellites on the partypoker website and see if they can win and qualify for the Main Event.
The qualifiers and sub-qualifiers hosted by partypoker start at $0.01 and feed into a tournament that takes place every Sunday where players can win a package estimated to be around €1,800. This special package from partypoker will give players an automatic entry into the WPTN Rozvadov Main Event, a three night stay and $300 in cash which they can use for basic expenses.
