Banco Casino Ready for Winter Polish Poker Cup 2024

Banco Casino Ready for Winter Polish Poker Cup 2024

After a short period of relatively smaller local tournaments at Banco Casino, from February 23rd the Winter Polish Poker Cup is coming to town. Four times per year, this event is organized and the final of those usually is at the end of the year. The upcoming event can be considered a regular one, having a €130 Main Event, with a GTD prize pool of €250.000.

In the past weeks, Banco Casino has organized a couple of local events such as the Banco Masters, and the Fifty Grand event, where big numbers were registered in the end. Now, for the Winter Polish Poker Cup, the bar has been set high again and Bratislava will be overwhelmed with a horde of Polish poker players, all trying to get their hands on one of the trophies to be collected during the event.

Polish Poker Days

The setup of the Polish Poker Days is all in the hands of ‘Legalny-Poker’, an organization based in Poland responsible for dozens of live poker tournaments out there. Four times a year, they head to the Banco Casino in Bratislava to organize some of the biggest low-buy events in the live poker industry. The first one, the Winter Cup edition, will be organized from the 23rd of February until the 4th of March, and it promises to be a huge one!

Impressions of the Previous Polish Poker Days Event in 2023

Jan Packa, the Marketing Manager of Banco Casino, mentioned the following about the collaboration with Legalny-Poker:

‘’The cooperation between Banco Casino and Legalny-Poker has been going on for more than 8 years. Over time, we have created a second home for poker players from Poland, and the fact that we have been cooperating for so many years and that players are coming back to us is a sign that we have succeeded, for which we are of course grateful. We are glad that this brand attracts excellent partners and overall the Polish Poker Series in 2024 will be one of the biggest events in Slovakia ever. However, last year a Slovak record was set in the number of entries, 5.061 in the Main Event. I believe that this year, thanks to the Banco Casino community, Legalny-Poker community and online partners, we will conquer this extreme number together.’’

Recently, ‘Legalny-Poker’ already started to collaborate with KKPoker, an online poker operator. For the upcoming event, they also partnered up with WPT Global, a good indication of their ambitions to grow this live event to even bigger proportions.

These events are based on the size of the GTD prize pool. Besides these events, there are numerous live qualifiers available, as well as plenty of NLHE singular events, a ladies' event, and a mixed games event.  On top of that, cash games will run around the clock. But to be sure we are not missing out on anything, we asked Jan Packa if there is anything special about the cash games during the event:

‘’Of course, in addition to massive tournaments with huge prize pools, there will also be a cash game zone full of players. And not only the players but also the bonuses that Banco Casino is known for. Actions as a High Hand Bonus €1,000 GTD, for a Royal Flush, for example, the guest receives €500 in cash. The Progressive Bad Beat Jackpot will also be "running" on both NLHE and PLO. The bonuses are just the icing on the cake, as there will be great games during the Winter Polish Poker Cup.’’

Banco Casino

Banco Casino is the home of many live events throughout the year. For poker players, such events might seem sort of the same, but is that really the case? What makes the Polish Poker Days stand out compared to the rest of the live poker events?

Jan Packa: ‘’We have created a second home for our neighbors to the north, with whom we have a lot in common. Everyone in the casino looks forward to every single tournament in the Polish Poker Series. And how is it different from other events? Endless fun, day and night. An extreme number of poker-loving and fun-loving players are all under one roof at Banco Casino for several days. I most definitely recommend visiting one of the stops during 2024 so that everyone can experience it.’’

European Poker Championship

We also would like to mention already that from March 19th until March 25th, the first European Poker Championship will take place at the Banco Casino. With in total of € 500.000 in guaranteed prize pools, the biggest chunk of it will be taken away by the € 350 Main Event which has a guarantee of € 400,000! Mark these dates in your calendar, when numerous players from Greece and Cyprus will come down to the poker capital of Europe!
