  • PokerStars First Stop on Czech-Slovak Poker Tour Ends

    Monday, July 13th, 2009 by t2admin

PokerStars recently introduced a new poker tour to their long list of land based poker tours. The Czech-Slovak Poker Tour has begun and the first event finished last week in Prague at the Card Casino Prague. PokerStars did not promote this tour as they normally would but the first stop still saw a good turnout.

The Czech-Slovak Poker Tour will have four stops. Since Prague is over the tour will move to Ostrava at the Casino Kartac Ostrava on September 24th through the 27th, Brno at the Poker Herna Vegas on October 29th through November 1st and Bratislava at the Caesars Poker Club- Golden Vegas Bratislava on December 10th through the 13th. Each tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of CZK 1,222,222 which equals $65,000 American dollars. The buy-in to the tournament is CZK 12,222.

The Prague was limited to 198 players as the casinos in the region are quite small. 122 players showed up to compete in the first ever Czech-Slovak Poker Tour stop and it was Lukas Horak who won the event. Horak was the chip leader when final table play began and he never lost momentum. Horak defeated Martin Pecha in heads up play to win the 340,000 CZK first place prize.

The other stops on the tour are limited to a small group of players as well due to the casinos size. The Ostrava and Brno stops are limited to 153 players while the Bratislava stop has a higher limit at 225. The Czech-Slovak Poker Tour is also giving players an added chance to earn money. Players who finish in the top thirty two on the points leader board after all four events of the Tour will be able to compete in a special season finale tournament which will take place on January 9th 2010. The players will be competing for a piece of the CZK prize pool.
