Can I play on more than one starting day / Are re-entries possible?

You can play on as many starting days as you want. A re-entry is possible on every starting day.

Are there satellites in the CCCs and at the Montesino as well?

Yes, many CCCs and the partner casinos will offer satellites for the event. You can find more information under the menu item “Satellites“

I have already bought my ticket – what happens if I win another one in a satellite?

In this case, upon request one of the two tickets can be resold or transferred to a still unregistered player.

Can I reserve a place and pay the buy-in later?

Unfortunately, we cannot take any reservations without payment.

Can I carry out the buy-in online in advance and thereby secure a place on a specific starting day?

You can order your ticket in advance via our contact form

I want to buy a larger quantity of tickets / I am a poker organiser and would like to play satellites, so whom can I contact?

In this case, please send an email with your request to Mr. Gerald Riener, gerald.riener(at)montesino.at.

How does phase 1 work?

Phase 1 ends when 10 % of the entries (mathematically rounded) have been reached. The remaining players take their chip count along into a day 1 of their choice.

Can I qualify several times via phase 1?

Yes. Further qualifications can be used as a re-entry or for a further day 1. Qualifications that are not used will lapse.

Can I choose the location of my phase 1 qualification?

Qualifications from phase 1 must be used primarily in the casino where the phase was played.

How are the 10% calculated for the final qualification?

It is always mathematically rounded (114 entries = 11 finalists, 115 entries = 12 finalists). Players coming from phase 1 are counted as 1 entry per 100 k tournament chips.

Can I qualify for the finals more than once?

Yes, this option exists. You will receive the double qualification bonus for each additional qualification. At the 100k Opening Event 1,000 Euro, at the 400k Main Event 3,000 Euro. Only the highest chip count counts for the finals.

How much is the Min cash?

The Min cash at the 100k Warm-Up is € 350. The Min cash at the Main Event is € 1,000.

What does BB Ante stand for?

Instead of collecting the ante for each hand from each player, the Big Blind respectively pays the ante for the entire table. The amount is always equal to the Big Blind, regardless of the number of players at the table.

This has the advantage that less time is lost and that the players receive more hands.

If the player in the Big Blind should have too few chips to bring both, the Big Blind is paid first.
