Qualifiers Still Running For The PlanetWin365 WPT National Slovenia Event
With the PlanetWin365 WPT National Slovenia Event starting in just ten days, players still have a final week to qualify for the €1,500 buy-in tournament for as little as €0.22 via online satellite qualifier at planetwin365.com.
Part of the World Poker Tour’s National Series, the Slovenian event will take place from 18-22 October at the La Perla Casino in Nova Gorica and will feature a smaller buy-in than regular WPT main events to encourage local participation.
With Slovenia ideally located with borders on Croatia, Austria, Hungary and Italy, the event is expected to attract a lot of interest in Europe and a Enjoybet.it €660 side event will ensure that there will definitely be a strong Italian presence in Slovenia.
Further interest in the tournament will surely be generated by the fact that WPT title winner James Dempsey has attached his name to the event, with the 2011 WPT Five Diamond Champion vowing that he will be in Slovenia to try and add to his $821,612 in tour winnings.
“I can’t wait to visit the casino as I’m told the venue is first class and the people are so friendly there,” said Dempsey. “I hear they love donating chips so I expect to run deep and see a lot of chips coming my way!”
