As mentioned, the €350 Main Event with an initial guaranteed prize pool of €400,000 was a huge success. The guarantee was exceeded with an additional €59,650. It was eventually Greece who would end up winning the event as Vouldis Nikolaos bested a field of 1,512 entries and took it down for a great first prize of €81,320!

Coming Up: Banco Casino Masters (April 8 – 15)

The legendary Banco Casino Masters is once again on the schedule of Banco Casino. The tournament series mainly for players who like to play lower buy-in events, is a real eye-catcher in the region of Bratislava.

Going with a buy-in of just €170, and a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000, the Main Event of the Banco Casino Masters will become yet another great value town to be at. Who will crown him- or herself as the champion of the 38th edition of the Banco Casino Masters?

Farewell to Zuzana Mikulikova

It will be the first Banco Casino Masters in years, without Tournament Director Zuzana Mikulikova unfortunately, as she left Banco Casino in the quest for new endeavors. Nevertheless, the tournaments were already in good hands with Michal Borovsky, and with the help of fellow staff members such as Matúš Chyba, and they will still be in good hands in the upcoming period of glorious live poker events- and cash game action!
