€10,300 High Roller

Kenneth Smaron - EPT 12 Prague €10,300 High Roller Winner 2015

After 13 seasons, the European Poker Tour will rebrand in 2017 and become the PokerStars Championship. As a result, the final €10,300 High Roller Event that kicks off with Day 1 in 60 minutes from now as of 12.30 p.m. local time provides the last chance to engrave the name into poker history and lift the elusive trophy on Monday December 19th.

A big field is expected after yet another record-breaking festival in the Czech Capital and the Hilton Hotel will see many familiar names of the international poker circuit join the action for 10 levels of 60 minutes each. All participants will receive 50,000 in chips and a single re-entry is allowed until the start of Day 2 tomorrow, which will also conclude the end of the registration period.

The EPT13 Prague festival has already hosted four High Roller events: Initially, just the €50,000 Super High Roller and one €25,500 Single-Day High Roller were scheduled, but two identical single-day events with the same structure followed upon request by the players over the last two days.
