Poker is back at King’s Casino with new events

Posted on: June 15, 2020 10:28 PDT

The popular Czech Republic casino has been home to numerous big-ticket poker tournaments

The King's Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, is welcoming poker players back to its gambling facilities, while other parts of the world are still struggling with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Not only is poker back in the European casino, but the relaunch also comes with an exciting calendar to ensure players the best live poker action of the summer. One of the featured events is the $112,829 (€100,000) buy-in two-day PLO HIGHROLLER, which will take place this coming Saturday.

The largest poker room in Europe has a huge lineup of poker festivals over the course of the next two months, in which over $1.35 million (€1,2 million) is guaranteed to be distributed among winners. The great news for poker players came shortly after the country decided to relax its lockdown policies. Now, the Czech Republic allows many European citizens to enter the country with no need for tests or quarantine. Due to this, players from countries like Germany, Italy, Austria, Poland, Hungary, France and the Netherlands can visit the Czech Republic again to enjoy the best poker action in Europe since March 3, when the gambling venue reduced operations to respond to the pandemic.

Even though the online poker scene has not disappointed anyone running impressive online series, many players still suffered the complete absence of top-level live poker tournaments. Therefore, there are big names who already announced their intention or confirmed their attendance at the King's PLO High Roller event running at King's on June 20-21. Among those names, there is former professional footballer Sergej Barbarez, Austria's hero (and King's aficionado) Harry Casagrande and 2019 WSOPE bracelet winner Besim Hot.
