Online Satellite schedule MEC Poker Open released!
This year, the MEC Poker Open once again offers participants the opportunity to qualify online for the €175 Main Event and the €440 Highroller. In cooperation with main sponsor Bwin, a wonderful schedule of online qualification tournaments has been set up. From April 26th there will be a satellite every Sunday until the MEC Poker Open starts in October!
NEW: Win a Main Event Package!
New this year are the satellites where you can win a ‘Main Event Package’ ($630). Such a package consists of one €175,- Main Event ticket and 3 nights (Thursday to Sunday) in Silva Hotel Spa-Balmoral for 2 persons. This stay includes breakfast and free access to the hotel’s swimming pool and spa. So you can bring a friend who also wants to play the MEC Poker Open, but you can also bring your partner, so he or she can enjoy the spa while you are playing poker!
In addition to the Main Event Package satellites, there are also satellites where you can only win a Main Even ticket or a Highroller ticket! The buy in of every satellite event is $16.50. You can find the complete satellite schedule at the bottom of this article!
Online Community Tournament.
We’re very disappointed that there won’t be a MEC Poker Open in April. That’s why we’re organizing a MEC Poker Open Online Community Tournament especially for all community members! The tournament’s buy-in is $22 and will be played on Sunday, April 19 at Bwin. When the tournament is online and registration is open, we will let you know in the MEC Poker Open Community on Facebook. Not a member yet? Click below and join the community for free!
Day 1 Online on Sunday 4 October.
Also this year you can qualify at home for Day 2 of the Main Event. The online starting day of the MEC Poker Open will take place at Bwin on Sunday 4 October at 8pm. Day 1 Online is the same as a live starting day at the casino. The buy-in is $200 and you play 14 levels. If you still have chips at the end of level 14, you are through to Day 2. The stack you have left will be waiting for you on the 18th of October in the Poker Room of Casino de Spa, where you will continue to compete for the Main Event title!
