Take On The Game's Biggest Stars at the Pokercode Festival
Table Of Contents
Have you ever dreamed of playing poker against some of the world's top talent? Players such as Fedor Holz, Matthias Eibinger, and Rainer Kempe, but know that these elite stars usually frequent mich higher stakes than you would dare buy into. What if we told you, it was possible to lock horns with the players mentioned in a €550 buy-in event?
The inaugural Pokercode Festival heads to the Banco Casino in Bratislava, Slovakia from September 9-12, and features a €550 buy-in Main Event with a €125,000 guaranteed prize pool. You will also find a €220 Bounty King side event, and a €5,000 High Roller tournament on the four-day schedule.
Pokercode is sending some of its biggest names to represent the company, not least the previously mentioned Holz, Eibinger, and Kempe, but Steffen Sontheimer, Simon Rønnow Pedersen, Mario Mosboeck, and other participants of the Original Grindhouse. Obviously, these talented grinders will have their eye on the €5,000 High Roller title, but PokerNews has learned they plan to jump into the €550 buy-in Main Event!
The Main Event will be fiercely contested, but also plenty of fun. The Pokercode team has devised a structure that allows each day to last approximately eight hours, freeing up time to enjoy the fun activities such as the Pokercode Pub Quiz, the Players' Party, and the Soccer Tournament.

Pokercode Festival Special Offers
Anyone wishing to buy into any of the three tournaments can do so on-site at the Banco Casino in Bratislava, but if you buy in early via the Pokercode website, there is a limited time offer where those who pre-registered can win free Pokercode merchandise, a Special Event Pass, and one-on-one coaching! This special offer ends on August 15, so make sure you hurry to take advantage of it.
Pokercode has also put together some early bird packages that are limited to 50 packages in total; they are gone for good once they have gone.
A special deal of €165 for a single room at the Crown Plaza Hotel, including breakfast for three nights looks incredible value. Increase that to €195 and you can enjoy a double room with breakfast for three nights.
There is also an offer called the Main & Bed Package. This costs €715 and comes with a €550 Main Event seat, three nights' stay at the Crowne Plaza (with your room upgraded to a king-size bed), and breakfast throughout your stay.
The High Roller Bonus package comes with the €5,000 High Roller buy-in, but your three nights stay with breakfast is completely free because the package costs €5,000!
