The German Poker Championships are only a few days away! Taking place on the German border in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, the festival will coincide with the expansion of King's Casino.
The highlight of the poker festival is the German Poker Championships €2,200 Main Event, which features a huge €1 million guarantee. Players can enter Day 1s either online at partypoker or live at King's Casino.
Additionally, players looking to save a few bucks and potentially start Day 1 with a big stack can instead choose to play in one of the many Phase 1 flights at a cost of €220. These are different than satellite tournaments, as surviving players from any the Phase 1 tournaments will saddle up to play in a Day 1 with whatever stack they ended the day with.
Players can save even more as partypoker is hosting satellite and feeder tournaments around the clock starting at just €2.20 to Phase 1 events.
The festival also features many side events for players to potentially strike it rich. Players with a more limited bankroll can enjoy the €220 GPC Mini with a €200,000 guarantee, while those with a bigger bankroll will have the chance to compete in the €25,000 buy-in Super High Roller (€500,000 guarantee) and the €5,300 GPC High Roller (€100,000 guarantee). Additionally, cash games will be running 24/7 at limits both low and high.
