From Nov. 26 - Dec. 16, Prague will be home to two of the biggest and most awaited poker events of the year, with the 2015 Prague Poker Festival running alongside the European Poker Tour.
With a schedule that features over 50 different poker tournaments including the LEI Poker Tour, the World Poker Tour, and the Redbet LIVE, the Prague Poker Festival is set to attract thousands of poker lovers from all over the world to the King's Casino.
This year's edition will offer also a great chance for everyone who loves open-face Chinese poker to get together and be part of an amazing OFC poker event, with the second Tonybet Poker Open-Face Chinese World Championship taking place from Dec. 6-9.
One year ago, the first-ever OFC World Championship made poker headlines for being the biggest OFC live event ever created and for letting PokerStars mind sports ambassador and chess master Jennifer Shahade walk away with €218,500, the biggest cash prize in the history of the game.
"It was a huge confidence boost," Shahade said about her victory. "My strongest memories are my last minute decision to play and racing to the tournament hall to late-reg, [and] discovering I was wearing my shirt inside-out around 12 hours into play."
"I also remember having so much support from people I had no idea were rooting for me, and celebrating with champagne at around 5 AM with members of Tonybet Poker the Kings' Casino team, and Warren Lush - who convinced me to play!."
"Prague is also one of the best cities in the world to celebrate a victory, especially during an EPT," Shade went on to explain. "December in Prague is like paradise for a poker player. There are so many great tournaments and cash games to play at the EPT. There is even a chess and poker event on this year's EPT schedule."
"Prague is really beautiful this time of year. I look forward to walking through the Christmas markets and getting a few snowflakes in my hot chocolate or mulled wine!"
