PokerStars and Kings Resort, organizers of the Poker Championship, have decided to postpone the event due to the new pandemic outbreak and the nation’s month-long state of emergency.
According to EPT’s official site, organizers are considering returning to Prague next year. However, the exact date has not yet been announced. 경마사이트
On Nov. 25, Czech Health Minister Adam Voitek announced a national emergency and imposed new restrictions in response to a rise in COVID-19 cases in the country.
Among other regulations, the minister imposed a 10 p.m. curfew on casinos, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. The capacity of offline casinos has also been limited to 1,000 people, and mandatory vaccinations are still required for entry.
WSOPE, the European version of the poker world series, has also been affected by new requirements. The poker tournament began on Nov. 19, just a week before the declaration of a national emergency. While WSOPE continues to operate at King’s Resort in Rosebadov, some changes have been made to the fun poker game schedule for the championship. Most poker events start at 10 a.m. and continue until 10 p.m. in compliance with mandatory curfews. The attendance limit for major games such as Colossus is also limited to 1,000. If necessary, the poker series organizers will schedule additional game sessions.
