WSOP International Circuit Main Event Begins on March 29 at King’s Resort
The WSOP International Circuit Rozvadov that started March 14 and runs through April 1, has been generating tons of action at King’s Resort, Rozvadov. The festival will award a total of 15 gold rings with buy-ins ranging from €299 to €5,300.
Thus far, a total of nine players have found themselves holding WSOP Circuit gold with six more rings still to be handed out. Two more gold rings are scheduled to be awarded on today, March 28, when Event #11 €2,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller plays its final day and the one-day Event #12: €5,300 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller with a €100,000 guarantee begins and ends.
Also yet to be played, is the highlight of the festival, the Event #13: €1,700 Main Event featuring a juicy €1,103,500 guaranteed prize pool.
The Main Event, which will be covered by PokerNews alongside the High Roller, provides plenty of action with players starting with 50,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 45 minutes during each of the two opening flights on March 29 and 30. The tournament allows for one reentry per opening flight. One last reentry option is available before the late-registration period closes (end of the second blind level of Day 2 on March 31.) Blind levels will increase to one hour on the final day on April 1.
In October 2018, Switzerland’s Emil Bise became the last player to win a WSOP Circuit Main Event in Rozvadov, besting a field of 675 entrants to win the top prize of €185,652 ($213,459).
