Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet, especially during the winter months when it can be covered in a blanket of snow. While the temperatures in Prague will be cold right now, from Nov. 29 to Dec. 6, the poker action will be red hot thanks to the partypoker WPT Prague Festival of Poker heading to town.

The WPT Prague Main Event runs from Dec. 2-6 and costs €3,300 to enter. For that princely sum, players receive 30,000 tournament chips and play to levels that increase every 60 minutes, reducing to 30 minutes when the tournament reaches the heads-up stage.

Players are permitted to make one re-entry and late registration is left open until the beginning of Day 2.

When the WPT Prague Main Event ran in 2015, a total of 256 entries were processed, which generated a prize pool of €773,824. The lion’s share of this prize pool went to Spain’s Javier Gomez who won €175,000 and a seat to the WPT Tournament of Champions. Will it be you who returns home from Prague as a WPT champion this year?
