The main event of the year, as far as poker goes, is about to commence. During the dates of October 19th to November 10th, all the poker aficionados', amateur and professional player's eyes will be on Rozvadov, Czech Republic, for this is where the biggest tournament of the year, the World Series of Poker, will be held. This will be the first time this event is taking place in this country.
The WSOP will take place on the magnificent premises of King's Casino, a brand new and utterly attractive location for all avid gamblers and a new place to hold important events in. It will consist of 84 tournaments and 11 so-called gold bracelet events where the main prize will be, well - a golden bracelet.
And prizes is where it's at. The Main Event is the one players
and spectators look forward to the most. King's Casino owner, Leon Tsoukernik, has stated that, due to a bigger than expected demand for tickets, the organizers have decided to revise the prize pool for the event - and for the better. At first, there was supposed to be €4 million in prize money in total, but this was changed to €5 million, with one million going to the winner of the Main Event. Oh, and they will get the golden bracelet, too.
There is still time for players to register and book their place in poker's biggest annual tournament. A variety of games will be the test of their skills: No Limit Hold'em, High Roller, Super Turbo Bounty etc. Some of the tournaments will be charity events with the objective to raise funds for clean water supply to the developing and impoverished nations.
