Rozvadov may be a very small town in Czech Republic, but when it comes to poker, it is anything but. The town situated on the border between Germany and Czech Republic has been known to host some of the biggest poker events in Europe, including WSOP Circuit in 2015.
That festival was a huge success, bringing players from all over Europe to the green felt. Continuing on this success, Rozvadov is set to host WSOP Circuit 2016 in November, with a guaranteed prize pool of €2,225,000 across 14 events.
WSOP Circuit Rozvadov 2016 schedule
There will be fourteen WSOP Circuit rings up for grabs in Rozvadov’s King’s Casino. The action will actually kick off on October 27 with the WSOP Circuit Opening Day 1A. This event features a €299 buy in and four starting days, guaranteeing €300k prize pool.
There are several more smaller events and Circuit Opening satellites scattered through the final days of October.
WSOP Circuit Deep Stack Open comes with a €220 buy in and a €150,000 guarantee. Those looking for a tournament with really good structure will enjoy this one, since it features 40,000 chips starting stack and 30 minute levels.
Another great event for those who enjoy good structures is the €530 Monster Stack, with 50,000 starting stack and 40 minute levels. With the prize pool of €250k, it is guaranteed to attract a lot of attention.
The one everybody is looking forward to is, of course, the WSOP Circuit Main Event. With a buy-in of €1,650 and featuring a cool €1,000,000 prize pool, the event will look to outmatch its last year’s record of 715 players.
WSOP Circuit Rozvadov for high rollers
It has become almost mandatory for any bigger tournament series to also offer several events for high rollers. WSOP Circuit Rozvadov 2016 is no different, as there are two separate events custom tailored for those with bigger bankrolls.
Although these may not seem too big when compared to other tournaments with high roller prefix, compared to other buy ins, they are clearly aimed at a select minority of players who will be able to afford them.
- WSOP Circuit High Roller event: kicks off on November 10, featuring €5,300 buy in and €100k guarantee
- WSOP Circuit Super High Roller event: starts on November 9, with a buy in of €8,888
Although the WSOP Circuit is more geared towards smaller buy in players, tournament organizers realize the need to offer something to attract those with deeper pockets and these high roller tournaments should be enough to pique their interest.
WSOP Circuit Rozvadov Satellites
If you want to play in the Main Event but can’t afford the full buy in, there are many satellite tournaments running at the location as well as online. With some investment, a little effort, and a bit of luck, you should be able to grab your seat fairly cheap.
888 poker, as the official sponsor of the WSOP, also offers satellites to the Rozvadov Main Event with the buy in of $160. This is a great opportunity to try and win your seat at a discount even if you have the bankroll to cover the entry.
