On Friday evening, 20 June, a total of 325 entries emerged in a €115 bounty event and the top 39 spots were paid. PokerNews reported, “From a mind-blowing €100k buy-in two-day PLO HIGHROLLER kicking off on Saturday, June 20, to an impressive lineup of poker festivals, the largest poker room in Europe aims to distribute over €1.2 Million in guarantees during the course of the next two months.”

The latest event King’s PLO High Roller €2,500 buy-in ran from 20 June to 21 June. A total of 60 entries boosted the prize pool to €128,250 which was well-received by the top 7 players.
