The inaugural German Poker Championship at King's Casino, located on the German border in Rovzadov, Czech Republic, is just around the corner. The tournament features a mouth-watering €1 million guarantee with plenty of chances to get in on the action for just €220.
There are plenty of €220 Phase 1 tournaments taking place both live at the casino and online at partypoker, where if you make it through the day you will bring forth your starting stack to Day 1. You can also just opt to pay the €2,200 fee for the tournament and play a Day 1 either online or live.
If you are looking to get in even cheaper, partypoker is hosting plenty of satellites and feeder tournaments starting at just €2.20. This could be a great opportunity to play for a big payday without going too deep into your wallet to do so.
The German Poker Championship is just the showcase of a larger poker festival, which also includes five side events and plenty of ring games running around the clock. The side events should be attractive to low-stakes and high-stakes players; they include the €220 GPC Mini with a €200,000 guarantee and the €25,000 buy-in Super High Roller with a €500,000 guarantee.
