With the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe now in full swing, it is time to welcome some of the best players from around the world to the King's Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The first and largest high roller of the series is set to begin with Event #4: €250,000 Super High Roller kicking off at 3 p.m. local time.
With an attractive schedule for many of the high-roller regulars over the course of the next three weeks, there is no doubt that many of them will be making an appearance at one point in time. Last year, in what was a €100,000 buy-in event, local King's poker-villain Martin Kabrhel captured his third gold bracelet along with over €2.6 million for first place.
There is likely to be another strong German contingent of players heading up the field with the casino located on the country's border. Some of the high-rollers already seen strolling throughout the area have included Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Koray Aldemir, Adrian Mateos, and Danny Tang.
The cards are scheduled to get in the air at approximately 3 p.m. but as with all high-rollers, there could be a slight delay in order for some of the tables to fill up. Each player will be given a starting stack of 5,000,000 chips with the blinds beginning at 10,000/20,000 and a 10,000 big blind ante. The levels will be 60 minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every two levels. There will also be a 60-minute dinner break after the sixth level and a total of 10 levels on tap for Day 1.
There will be an unlimited number of re-entries available for those who see their chips diminish in the late registration period. Late registration will remain open until the start of Day 2 at approximately 2 p.m. On Day 2, they will play down to the final table with the WSOP gold bracelet being handed out on Day 3.
As always, the PokerNews live reporting team will be bringing you all of the action with chip counts, bust-outs, and marquee pots throughout the entire event.
