Tonybet Announces First-Ever Live World Championship of OFC Poker

by Tony G on October 22, 2014

This December the month-long Prague poker festival will see a new and long-awaited addition, the Tonybet Open Face Chinese Poker World Championship. The world’s biggest online OFC poker site TonybetPoker.com will host the €1,000 buy-in Main Event and the €10,000 buy-in High Roller tournament at the King’s Casino at Corinthia Hotel.

According to the site representatives it’s going to be the biggest live Open Face Chinese Poker event in history, with the €10K High Roller expected to draw some of the biggest names in poker. “With the entire poker community coming to Prague in December, there’s just no better time and place to hold the first OFC World Championship,” Tonybet Poker spokesman said in an interview.

While the €1,000 Pineapple Main Event will crown the OFC World Champion, the €10,000 Pineapple High Roller should become the Open Face Chinese Poker catwalk both in terms of player names and the quality of the game.

“We have decided to run an ambitious €10K High Roller event as per request from our top regulars,” the spokesman said. “We’re expecting this tournament to draw a lot of big names from the poker community. Meanwhile the Main Event will determine the OFC World Champion, and with the game still being relatively new, the difference in players’ skill should be much smaller than in the biggest Hold’em events”.

Tonybetpoker.com has already started running online satellites giving away seats to the OFC World Championship €1,000 ME. Online qualifiers start from as low as €10, while the site will also run freerolls, leaderboards and other promotions with guaranteed seats to the live event.

All those interested in the game are welcome to join Tonybet Poker and compete for their ticket to the live Open Face Chinese Poker World Championship by setting up an online account and taking advantage of the first deposit bonus code STARTER to receive a 100% bonus up to €500.

The site also boasts iOS and Android apps allowing the OFC fans to play real money games on their mobile devices. Both applications are free and available for download from the App Store and Play Store.

The Tonybet OFC Poker World Championship will also celebrate the site’s one-year birthday and the representatives promised it will feature lots of side action including OFC cash games, presents and nice surprises for the players.
