The poker bonanza is going to take place in King’s Casino in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic and well-known poker names are expected to make their appearance at the numerous tournaments part of the rich schedule.

The poker festival is going to offer many chances for winning big since there are going to be 11 WSOP gold bracelets waiting to meet their new owners. The winners of those 11 special events will receive the gold bracelets together with the prize for the first place. Just as expected, the culmination of the poker festival is going to be the Main Event which is going to feature a buy-in amounting to €10,350. The Main Event was announced to feature a guaranteed prize pool amounting to €5 million, but there are opinions that it is going to be surpassed since the interest towards the tournament is going to be big.

Another poker tournament which should be taken into account is the High Roller which is dedicated to the poker players which have an affinity towards the highest stakes. The €111,000 WSOPE High Roller for One Drop is going to feature a guaranteed prize pool amounting to €10 million, which is double what the Main Event has on offer, and weeks before the official start some of the most recognizable names in the poker industry had already confirmed their participation. It is known that Phil Hellmuth, Fedor Holz, Patrik Antonius, Antonio Esfandiari, Gus Hansen, Liv Boeree and Tony G are going to demonstrate their best game at the High Roller. The total €11,111 rake less taxes of the event will be donated to the One Drop Foundation and the amount is going to be amassed from the buy-ins of the players.

High Stakes Excitement

The High Roller event is scheduled to be a three-day poker tournament, which will commence on 3rd November. All players will begin their game with a total of 2 million in chips and the blinds will increase every 60 minutes. Late-registering and re-entering are allowed to happen as many times as the players wish, up until the 12th level of the event. This summer the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop which took place in Las Vegas attracted a total of 130 players. The big winner became Doug Polk, who went home with $3,686,865, which is why the interest towards the WSOPE High Roller is expected to be even bigger.

There are also many more affordable options in the rich program of the WSOPE, featuring buy-ins starting from as little as €550., as well as cash games of all buy-in levels.
