The PokerNews Cup is set to shoot the poker action to the moon when the King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, brings players from around the world to the tables on February 3rd, 2015. The 2015 PokerNews Cup is guaranteed to pack the action into the €200 buy-in Main Event — featuring a €200,000 guarantee; a €20,000 guaranteed €120 opening event; and a €5,000 guaranteed finale tournament with a buy-in as low as €85.
King's Casino provides the biggest live poker room in Europe and players are always treated to great services and incredible cash games that run around the clock. Add the PokerNews Cup to the picture and you've got magic!
"We are extremely proud to bring an event like the PokerNews Cup to the King's Casino," King's owner Leon Tsoukernik said.
"Like PokerNews, also at King’s Casino we strive for excellence. By coming to the PokerNews Cup, players will get the chance to discover one of Europe's best casinos with cash tables and casino games running round-the-clock."
After a four year break, the PokerNews live tournament series went back to Europe this year. It first launched at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia, in 2007. Australia's Dory Zayner took home the championship that year for €209,000.
The PokerNews Cup continued to prosper and attract players from all over the world as big names like Tony G, 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner Mark Vos, and WSOP bracelet winner Jeff Lisandro joined in the action and excitement of promoting the series.
The PokerNews Cup has featured events that took place in South Africa (2008), Austria (2009, 2014) and again Australia (2008, 2008, and 2009), bringing in a field of over 1,500 players from 22 different countries.
The PokerNews Cup managed to put everything into the mix that creates a great poker tournament series, from low buy-in events, big names at the tables, friendly atmosphere, professional event organization, and combine it all into a package that appeals to recreational players who want to taste their first 'big' live poker experience.
"The experience we have matured throughout the years allowed us to understand the industry like no other and also understand what poker players look for in a poker tournament," PokerNews CEO Jon Squires said.
"The sixth edition of the PokerNews Cup is going to be an amazing event. For a very low buy-in, the series will offer every participant the unique opportunity to sit at the tables for some top poker action, compete for a significant guaranteed prize pool and enjoy the great exposure that only a global poker media as PokerNews can offer."
