The King's Casino is on fire this week, with Europe's juiciest and most spectacular cash games taking place right after the massive €200,000 guaranteed PokerNews Cup Main Event that drew 1,104 entries during the weekend.
From Monday, Aug. 15 through Thursday, Aug. 18, Europe's largest poker room will welcome some of the biggest names in poker for one of the most exclusive editions of the Celebrity Cash Kings game ever organized.
The likes of world renowned bad boy and Lithuania's representative at the European Parliament Antanas 'Tony G' Guoga will battle shoulder-to-shoulder with legends of the game like Fedor Holz, Igor Kurganov, and Czech Republic's Vojtech Ruzicka, who is in Rozvadov to grind in preparation of the World Series of Poker Main Event (WSOP) final table in November.
"I just started to work on my game to understand where I can and should improve before the WSOP Main Event final table begins, but now I am here at King's only to enjoy the cash games" Ruzicka shared with PokerNews."
"The King's Casino is a very special place to me because here's where my career started. I love this place, and I believe this is the best poker room in Central Europe. You can't find any other place with an offer like this one," Ruzicka went on to explain.
The list of confirmed participants includes also Dan Cates, Tobias Reinkemeier, Jesper Hougaard, Jan Peter Jachtmann, Sam Trickett, Roberto Romanello, and Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong.
As usual, the troop of businesspeople that will hit the tables to play poker at the highest limits with the best players in the world will be led by King's Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik. "This year's line-up has a great feel to it with so many people returning plus others coming to Rozvadov for the very first time," Tsoukernik said.
"The famous King hospitality is ready. We welcome all the players but it's particularly nice to see Fedor come back to his roots and a place where it all started for him — we are all very proud how he has risen so fast."
At the conclusion of the event, all players who wish to head to Barcelona for the first European Poker Tour event of the next season will be provided with a lift via private jet. EPT Barcelona kicks off Aug. 16 with coverage provided right here on PokerNews.
