The second edition of The Big Wrap poker tournament is set to take place at King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic from September 9 to 16.
The Big Wrap is the biggest Omaha poker tournament in Europe, with the inaugural event being held in April. The upcoming festival features €1.5 million in guarantees, €300,000 bigger than the €1.2 million being awarded to winners during the first edition of the tournament.

There are three opening days taking place on September 9-11, and players will have lots of chances to build a huge stack as unlimited re-entries are allowed in the first 10 levels of each opening day.
Blind levels will increase to 45 minutes on the second and third day (September 12-13), as the surviving players battle it out for the lion’s share of the €200,000 guarantee. You can also enter the event for a cheaper price by taking part in satellites which cost only €75.
