The live poker scene is back in full swing, with global and regional tours running full schedules in 2023, and among the regional series back with a vengeance is the Eureka Poker Tour. Focusing on eastern Europe, Eureka from PokerStars is back for its first stop of 2023 in Rozvodov, the Czech Republic.
The action got underway on Mar 13, but there is still plenty of time to get into the games. Series action runs through March 20 at King’s Casino Rozvadov and is sponsored by PokerStars with three big events, plus side events daily.
There is $1.25 million guaranteed in these three tournaments, with the €1,100 Eureka Main Event guaranteeing a cool million on its own. For players on the lower end of the bankroll scale, the €330 Eureka Cup offers a shot at €150k gtd., while deeper pockets will be looking at the €2,200 Eureka High Roller.

Big Games and Side Events in the Czech Republic
EUREKA is descending on Rozvodov in the Czech Republic for its first stop of 2023, and the PokerStars-sponsored festival is already underway. There are games running through March 20 with shots at the €330 Eureka Cup going until Mar 16 and Day 2 of the low-roller event running Mar 17.
Main Event flights begin on Mar 16, with the final chance to bag a Day 1 stack in the Main coming on Mar 18. Both the Cup and the Main Event are three-day events, and the Main Event will finish with Day 3 on Monday, Mar 20, while the Cup plays its Day 3 on Mar 17.
For players with deeper pockets, a High Roller game closes out the series with two days of action on Sunday and Monday. There are also single-day side events running throughout the series, including a Morning Turbo Knockout game on Mar 15 and the Eureka Rozvadov Closer on Mar 19. The PLO Eureka Championship for €440 starts on Mar 17 for a two-day championship event in four-card poker.
Big Prizes for Small Buy-Ins Live and Online
Besides the regular events on the schedule at PokerStars’ EUREKA Rozvodov, there are plenty of ways to get into the big games for cheap. For players who are on the ground at the casino, live satellites for all events are running throughout the series, with satellites to all Day 1s taking place a few hours before the day begins.
That gives players in Rozvodov a great shot at cheap seats, but players at home can book a ticket to the Main Event before they book a flight to the Czech Republic, too. There are online satellites running on the global PokerStars app with games starting as low as €0.27.
The main qualifier game is €162 and guarantees one package to the Main Event worth €1500. Players can, of course, jump right in at that level and play directly for the package, but they also have a couple of different ways to work their way up to that level.
Check out the PokerStars global client for the full satellite schedule and grab your a seat in the Main without even leaving the couch.
