Fans of PokerStars have been very receptive to the PokerStars Championship, the rebranded version of the European Poker Tour. The EPT would usually finish up the year in Prague and the PokerStars Championship will do the same. The season for 2017 will end at the Casino Atrium Prague with 43 tournament events, running from December 7th until the 18th.

This will be the first time that the PokerStars Championship Prague takes place, but this is nothing new for PokerStars as the EPT visited the city many times in the past. For the Championship stop, the Main Event will be deep-stacked, with players offered 30,000 in starting chips and two opening flights. The tournament will begin on the 12th and continue until the 18th until the winner is named.

PokerStars Championship To Include Super High Roller Event

The PokerStars Championship Prague will include a Super High Roller Event, additional high roller events and more within the jam-packed schedule. On top of the large schedule of events, players can also take part in cash games which will be played within the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Prague. No limit hold’em and pot limit Omaha will be the main cash games featured.

Players who attend the stop in Prague will find several events on the schedule each day of the 12-day affair. Qualifiers are included in the schedule to help players pay less to win a seat to the larger events. Players can also qualify online. More information about qualifiers as well as the full schedule of Prague events can be found at the PokerStars website.

First Stop For PokerStars Championship In Russia

In 2018, the PokerStars Championship will be back in action with the first stop in Sochi, Russia. Players will be heading to Russia from March 20th to the 29th to compete in several events with big guarantees, with plenty of tournaments on offer as well as cash gaming. The Sochi Casino and Resort will be hosting the tournament events and offer accommodations.
