The very first MEC Poker Open is only one year ago. Since then we’ve had two exciting editions with over 500 entries in each Main Event, a nomination for best Belgian Poker Event and we partnered up with Bwin. Now, one year later, we are looking forward to the third MEC Poker Open in Casino de Spa!
Main Event (17-20 October)
This year the Main Event (€175,-) has four startingdays. When you survive day 1 you qualify yourself for day 2 and you’re automatically in the money! At day 2 (the final day) the remaining players will compete for the title. There are three startingdays at Casino de Spa but for the first time we have an online startingday on Bwin as well!
Last year there was a first prize €14.565,- and after four days of poker Kristof de Clercq held the MEC Poker Open Trophy!
The last months there were a number of satellites for the Main Event and the Highroller (€440,-) on Bwin. Many players qualified themselves allready for just $11. You still have a chance to qualify, because there are still a couple satellites scheduled!
Day 1 Online
For the first time you can play Day 1 from home! At 6 October 20.00h there will be an Online Day 1 on Bwin. On this online startingday you will play 15 levels of 15 minutes. If you still have chips left at the end of level 15 you are in the money and reached day 2 (that will be played in Casino de Spa).
Day 1A, 1B, 1C and Day 2
If you like to experience the fun of playing the MEC Poker Open at Casino de Spa you can play one of the other three startingdays. They are held in the Poker Room of Spa (PROS) at the first floor of the casino. At these startingdays you will play 15 levels of 40 minutes. Survive all of them and you make it to Day 2 and you’re automatically in the money! Each startingday you can re-enter the tournament 1 time.
