PokerStars Championship heads to Prague

3 November 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Poker players from around the world will enjoy 12 days of poker action for the last PokerStars Championship event of the year at the Casino Atrium Hilton in Prague, running 7-18 December. Online satellites for the €1,100 National Championship and €5,300 Main Event are running daily at PokerStars from as little as $5.50.

PokerStars Championship Prague will also be the last opportunity to book a spot at the table to become the PokerStars Championship Player of the Year and win $100,000 in the Bahamas on 5 January, one day prior to the kick-off of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) 2018.

$100,000 winner takes all
Bryn Kenney, Chris Hunichen, Nick Petrangelo, Daniel Dvoress, Koray Aldemir and Vladimir Troyanovskiy will be joined by the Prague Leaderboard winner to battle it out in a $100,000 winner-takes-all freeroll. All leader board winners have also been awarded a VIP PCA package worth over $17,000. Who will win the last remaining seat?

Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu said, "Online satellites are running now for Prague. It's going to be fun, and there's a bonus VIP PCA package up for grabs for the leader board winner, who will get a shot at winning the Player of the Year title and $100k."

Full details about the PokerStars Championship Player of the Year can be found on the website.

Players will also have the opportunity to rub elbows in Prague with some of the best professional poker players in the world, including Team PokerStars Pros Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Marcin Horecki, Andre Akkari, Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov, who have each confirmed attendance.

Team PokerStars Pro ElkY, who lives in Prague, said, "There is no better way to end the poker year than playing poker on your own home turf. I'm really looking forward to the variety of high class tournaments that are on offer, and not to forget, getting to spend some time at the Christmas markets during the PokerStars Championship in Prague."
