After 6 months of promotion for the launch of the Poker Room Of Spa, it's already time to step back and to move on to other destinations.
This does not mean that I will not be around at all anymore but I am definitely planning to spend less time in Belgium again over the coming months. That does not make the cash game tables less juicy in Spa though :D So I am for sure planning to come back from time to time like for instance for their upcoming bounty hunt for next weekend from the 16th to the 19th May.
The event is a €250 buy-in tournament played in two days with three Day 1s. The starting stack will be 50k in 30/40-minute levels. View the complete structure HERE.
The second editions of the SPF is coming up for the summer. After the classic winter edition in January, the Spaniards will come back to Rozvadov for a week or two in July so maybe it's time to save the dates! The SPF Rozvadov Summer 2019 is taking place from 21st to 28th of July this year but there is a lot more events put on throughout the year by the iberic Poker organisation.
Find their annual dates in the flyer below and find out more on their website!
Une des règles fondamentale au Poker de tournoi est la suivante: Quand ça run, ça run! :D
Vladimer Gigolahvii a encore frappé!! Souvenez-vous, c'est lui qui empochait le plus gain lors du deal 4-way dans l'EPS Rozvadov Main Event ce lundi. Apparemment, il est resté coincé à Rozvadov, mais pas pour se reposer ... En effet, c'est lui qui ship le Big Wedensday d'hier. Deux wins sur le début de semaine. Easy!
Vous voulez faire comme-lui (bonne chance!), alors retrouvez le programme complet des tournois du King's Resort. Leur riche programme de MTTs live se trouve ICI.
Two weeks in Rozvadov from late April until yesterday for 2 weeks of King's madness during the EPS Rozvadov. More than 700 photos came together during my stay and all of them are available HERE.
The Poker action never stops at King's Resort and the next big event is already ready to go. From today, players will be able to take part to the live flights of the Party Poker Grand Prix fiesta after the online Day 1s.
The King's Resort offered their staff the opportunity to play a tournament today and as I am only travelling tomorrow morning after 2 weeks of #epsRozvadov, I couldn't resist the urge to shoot those who've been my colleagues so often by now in their raising mode :p
Enjoy the +700 E.P.S. shots in THIS FLICKR ALBUM.
The Staff Tournament photos are HERE.
This one was not listed in the regular tourneys, obviously, but you can view the full King's Resort Poker tournament schedule under in THEIR POKER AGENDA.
The Cash Game Tour crew is on the move again with an upcoming cash game festival at Casino Adjara from 22nd to 27th of May in collaboration with Poker Trest! Time to book your hotel package and flight tickets. Georgia is an attractive travel destination at the gates of Europe with numerous airway connections.

This week, the Poker Room Of Spa is offering you the chance to play the Belgian pros and you don't even have to break your bankroll to be part of it. The B.P.A. 2019 ceremony is coming up this weekend in Spa with a prestigious €1.100 event but there are ways around the cashier. As a matter of fact, from tomorrow, Thursday 11th of April, daily Phase 1 events will be available for €120.
10% of the field will advance to the Super Star Championship on Saturday but it is not a proper satellite. The twist is that you will keep your stack for the weekend tournament no matter how high or low it is. That way, you might end up being short stacked or maybe start with more players than your opponents on Saturday but always for a reduced price of €120 instead of €1.100.
Find all details on the P.R.O.S. page!
Here i am back in Belgium since Monday after a week of PLO madness at King's Resort for the Big Wrap that ended up being a great success. I spent the whole last week in Rozvadov playing the 4-card game and shooting the big boys in the â¬2.350 Main Event. More than 200 photos are online in my Rozvadov Big Wrap archive.
Next stop is the Casino de Spa again where I will attend the Belgian Poker Awards ceremony this weekend before a few quiet days followed by the big Rozvadov E.P.S.!!
One of the last European Poker Series hotel promotion has been launched yesterday and you have still time to join the ride for the 800.000+ Eur GTD festival.
I flew from Brussels to Prague yesterday morning for a full week of Pot Limit Omaha action at King's Resort and we are already looking back to a very decent Monday night with close to 100 entries in Day 1A of the Warm Up with a huge chipleader!
It's always nice to see him around, not so nice to have him at the table though :p Davidi Kitai, THE Belgian Poker star will be taking part to the Belgian Poker Award festivities in mid-March at the Poker Room Of Spa.
Find out about the ceremony, the prestigious €1.100 put in place by the P.R.O.S. and the Phase 1 qualifiers just before the B.P.A. weekend on the pokerroomofspa.com page.
The E.P.S. Spa is over and you will find all reports on their website after 12 days of Poker at the Poker Room Of Spa. You will find a link to more than 600 festival photos in the PHOTOS & COVERAGES section of this site.
I am now off for a bit family and online Poker time in Luxembourg before leaving to Rozvadov for that awesome PLO event coming up in early April: the BIG WRAP ! The rooms are filling up buck Frank Koopmann might still be able to help. Visit the website for quick and easy room bookings!

From 13th of March the European Poker Series will celebrate its return to the Poker Room Of Spa for almost two weeks of Poker action in the oldest functioning casino in the world!

I still did not get the chance to fly home to Portugal over this early February. After the P.R.O.S. Benelux Championship, I decided to skip Dublin for personal and business reasons but only to stick to the Luxembourg and Spa area where I have been staying since my return from my 2-week Rozvadov stay for the Dutch Classic's and the Spanish Poker Festival.
This weekend, I will be back at the Poker Room Of Spa for the APAT Benelux Championship before finally finding my way back to the Portuguese Atlantic coast for late February and early March :)
En décembre dernier, Tony G fêtait son anniversaire au King's Casino de Rozvadov par un grand tournoi de Pot Limit Omaha organisé par Frank Koopmann connu depuis longtemps sur les lieux. Amateur de belles parties de cartes et surtout de PLO, Frank remet ça ce début avril 2018 avec une double attaque à 4 cartes dans le Big Wrap avec son Warm Up à €200.000 et son Main Event à €1.000.000 garantis!!
I will be back in Spa from tonight with a photo and cash game plan but I don't think I will get away these days without registering at least one tournament :)
The one-day tournament weekend starts tonight with the Thursday Night Fever (€1.500 GTD) as a warm up before the big action kicks off from tomorrow.
Du 1 au 8 avril 2019, c'est un rendez-vous incontournable qui se profile à l'horizon pour tous les amoureux de Pot Limit Omaha au King's Resort Rozvadov. En effet, Frank Koopmann récidive après son tournoi de décembre à l'occasion du tournoi d'anniversaire de Tony G pour un buy-in de €1.100 et une garantie de €200.000 et remporté par Brian Cornell pour presque €42.000.
Immédiatement après le Festival WSOP Circuit, ce seront deux événements PLO du Big Wrap qui se succèderont avec des satellites pendant toute la semaine.
>> Le WARM UP avec €200.000 Garantis
