The world’s biggest online open-face Chinese (OFC) poker site will host the first-ever OFC Poker Live World Championship in Prague, Czech Republic, December 8 to 10.
Organized by TonyBet Poker, the Championship will include a two-day €1,000 Main Event, a “last minute” satellite with seats to the Main Event as a guarantee, and a promising $10,000 buy-in High Rollerreentry event scheduled for December 8.
TonyBet Poker has decided to run an ambitious €10K High Roller event as per request from its top regulars, and is expecting the tournament to draw a lot of big names from the poker community. It aims to become the ‘open-face Chinese poker catwalk both in terms of player names and quality of the game.’
The event will be held at King’s Casino in Prague’s renowned Corinthia Hotel, and TonyBet Poker’s live World Championship is set to become a cornerstone in the future of OFC live events and at the same time an exciting way to celebrate the room’s first year of activities.
Launched by Lithuania’s volcanic entrepreneur and current member of the European Parliament Tony G as “a present for the poker community,” TonyBet rapidly became a must-stop for a good number of OFC poker lovers.
In addition to the three events included in the Championship’s official schedule, the two-day of OFC poker will also offer “many OFC cash games, as well as loads of presents and nice surprises for the players who will participate.”
The World Championship will take place during PokerStars Prague Poker Festival and just a few days before the World Poker Tour National.
