The 45 qualifiers at partypoker began to arrive before the start of today’s Day 1a of the festival’s crown jewel in the €500,000 guaranteed partypoker Grand Prix €550 Main Event. The Main Event boasts six opening flights from July 19-22 with surviving players competing for two more days on July 22-23 until a winner is crowned.

Additionally, four-card enthusiasts will battle it out in one of the biggest Omaha events of the year in the €100,000 guaranteed €2,500 Euro Omaha Championship on July 20-21 with many other side events awarding big prizes and trophies as well.
Poker fans are in for a treat as each day partypoker will be live streaming poker action directly from Card Casino Bratislava with hole cards shown across a wide variety of cash games and tournaments at the partypokertv Twitch channel.
