Benelux Poker Tour heads to Cardo with €200,000 GTD
One big festival ends, another begins immediately. Are we talking about Las Vegas? No, we're talking about Card Casino Bratislava! Slovakia's biggest casino has been going "big bombs" since the beginning of the year, which will be confirmed by the upcoming Benelux Poker Tour with its €200,000 GTD.
The period from the second half of April to the end of May can safely be described as the time of world poker in Bratislava.
Card Casino Bratislava will first host the €350,000 GTD Vamos Poker Tour, followed by the WPT, the World Poker Tour, with a €500,000 GTD Main Event.
And right after its end, on May 15, a new festival will follow - the Benelux Poker Tour with a €200,000 GTD Main Event. But what's in store for players from May 16 to May 22?
On Wednesday, May 17, the Main Event itself will begin play. The buy-in to the tournament is €250, with a stack of 50,000 chips awaiting players at the start. Blinds will change after 30 minutes. The guarantee for the Main Event is €200,000.
