Built around an action-packed schedule, the 2015 PokerNews Cup features a superb €250 buy-in Main Event with a €200,000 guarantee, a €20,000 guaranteed €120 opening event, and a €5,000 guaranteed closure tournament available for as low as €85.
Together with these events, players will also get the chance to enjoy the great services and atmosphere of the buzzing King's Casino, as the home to the biggest live poker room in Europe plans to keep everyone more than busy with countless cash games running around-the-clock.
"We are extremely proud to bring an event like the PokerNews Cup to the King's Casino," King's owner Leon Tsoukernik said.
"Like PokerNews, also at King’s Casino we strive for excellence. By coming to the PokerNews Cup, players will get the chance to discover one of Europe's best casinos with cash tables and casino games running round-the-clock."
Back to Europe this year and after a four-year-long break, the PokerNews live tournament series is an event with roots that go a way back, as it was first launched at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia, in 2007.
During that memorable edition, won by Australia's Dory Zayner for €209,000, the Cup started to build its name and fame thanks to the participation of true icons of the game as Tony G, 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet Mark Vos and 2007 WSOP bracelet winner Jeff Lisandro.
Over the years, the PokerNews Cup has then managed to entertain and bring to the tables poker players from every corner of the globe, as the subsequent events that took place in South Africa (2008), Austria (2009, 2014) and again Australia (2008, 2008 and 2009), managing to involve a total field of over 1,500 players from 22 different countries.
The powerful mix of low buy-in events, friendly atmosphere, professional organization and great names at the tables also made the PokerNews Cup one of the most popular tournaments among those recreational players who are looking for their first 'big' live poker experience .
"The experience we have matured throughout the years allowed us to understand the industry like no other and also understand what poker players look for in a poker tournament," PokerNews CEO Jon Squires said.
"The sixth edition of the PokerNews Cup is going to be an amazing event. For a very low buy-in, the series will offer every participant the unique opportunity to sit at the tables for some top poker action, compete for a significant guaranteed prize pool and enjoy the great exposure that only a global poker media as PokerNews can offer."
