Become the World Sit ‘n’ Go Master with 32Red Poker… Luxury in Prague
When I first started out as a pro chess player I made an effort to select events in interesting, pleasant places – I would perform better in Paris, for example, than a random city in the UK. Of course for some professionals it doesn’t matter where they are but, generally, doing something we enjoy in nice surroundings, and being able to relax and enjoy the time when not competing, make for ideal conditions.
Now, thanks to 32Red Poker, there is an opportunity to do just that later this year, as over the next few months there will be multiple chances to earn a €3800 package to an exciting poker festival in Prague, namely the 4th annual World Sit ‘n’ Go Masters. Held in a city steeped in history, the festival features the €2200 main event itself (which now has a much nicer, user-friendly ring to it than the old ECOSTT, which was too much of a mouthful), as well as a potentially rewarding €550 side event and a €120 turbo bounty tournament.
What’s more is that the package includes four nights’ accommodation (for two people!) at the luxurious Corinthia Hotel so that players will find enough time to actually explore what the Golden City of Spires has to offer… and €400 travel/spending money.
An additional incentive to win a package is the tendency for this format to throw up ‘surprise’ winners compared with marathon, grinding tournaments, for example, and we shouldn’t forget that as well as the glory of becoming the World Sit ‘n’ Go Masters champion there is, of course, prize money involved (in the 2011 edition in Malta, winner David Rudling of England took home €30,000 for his efforts).
As for the qualifying routes, there’s something for everyone, with MTTs, Sit ‘n’ Go qualifiers and even Carnage satellites (which last for just a single hand!). There are also three monthly VIP packages available to whoever can accumulate the most Redbacks during August, September and October respectively.
Good luck at the tables!
