PokerStars Championship 2017 was a new initiative that the Stars Group put together and it has had a rather successful year in 2017. PokerStars Championship 2017 will have its final tour stop of the year in the beautiful city of Prague in Czech Republic.
PokerStars Championship Prague will be a winter wonderland poker escapade that will close the tournament’s successful 2017 run. The 12-day festive tournament will run from December 7 to 18 at the Casino Atrium Prague, and will feature 43 low- and high-stakes poker events.
The tournament will offer several events such as the PokerStars MegaStack from December 15 to 17 for as low as €170 and the PokerStars Championship Super High Roller 8-Handed which has a €50,000 buy-in.
High stake poker players have a lot of events to choose from including the two €25,000 Single-Day High Roller events scheduled on December 13 and 14 and the €10,300 Single Re-Entry High Roller which runs from December 16 to 18.
The highlight of the tournament will be the €5,300 PokerStars Championship Prague Main Event which will follow the format similar to that of the European Poker Tour (EPT) Main Event.
