After a day off from the high roller tournaments at the 2019 Pokerstars EPT Prague, it is now time for another €25,000 Single-Day High Roller. The largest event before the Christmas break is starting to wind down but there is still plenty of money to be won over the next few days.
The previous editions of this tournament earlier this week were won by Jean-Noel Thorel and Chin Wei Lim, who are both expected to be back in the field chasing another title. Some other strong performances throughout the week belong to Adrian Mateos and Ben Heath who have cashed in multiple events. Many players will still be looking for their first cash and possibly a trip-saver before the festival comes to an end.
The action is scheduled to get underway at 12:30 p.m. local time but a slight delay should be expected to allow for enough players to register before the cards go in the air. Similar to the other single-day tournaments, players will begin with a starting stack of 100,000 chips with the blinds beginning at 500/1,000 and a 1,000 big blind ante.
The levels will be 30 minutes in length with a 15-minute break after levels 4 and 7. There will be a 60-minute dinner break scheduled for after level 10. There is an unlimited re-entry option available and the late registration period will remain open for ten levels. As with most high-roller events, there will be a 30-second shot clock in play and each player will start with six 30-second time extensions.
