Bratislava from 16 to 21st July, is a perfect summer getaway.
Fly into Vienna only 30 minutes from Bratislava (the 2 capital cities in Europe closest to each other) or get one of the less frequent flights direct to Bratislava where last year some people walked directly from the airport to the hotel/casino (less than 10 minutes).
And what a place it is. The Card Casino Bratislava is a resort-style venue like the Bellagio in Las Vegas but much closer to home.
This is a great trip. When you travel to play poker in Central Europe, you get the experience of playing against people from loads of countries and they are all different from each other. Here it will be full of Austrians, Hungarians, Ukrainians, Poles, and lots of Czechs and Slovaks all playing in their own way and reflecting their own culture.
Soak that up and enjoy, broaden your horizons, and expand your bank balance with the mouth-watering guarantee of €500,000 for the Main Event with a buy-in of €700.
Book your flights nice and early and avail of the fantastic hotel rates available from Susie.
Maybe have a stop in Vienna on the way there. “This means nothing to me” – Wrong Midge
The top players will still be in Vegas at the WSOP or on their way back tired and bedraggled.
This time of year is traditionally the best time to have the best fields for those reasons.
