The King’s Casino in Rozvadov has partnered with India’s online poker room PokerHigh, and Andrej Desset pulls off the miracle of winning two partypoker Grand Prix events on the spin.

The King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic has partnered with one of India’s up and coming online poker rooms in a bid to write one lucky player into the script of a fairytale.

King’s Casino partner PokerHigh; Desset wins back-to-back Grand Prix’sPokerHigh, the online poker room belonging to Quantum Skill Gaming & Tech Pvt. Ltd., will host an online satellite on Sunday 7 May, with one package guaranteed for the €1,100 buy-in €1m GTD partypoker Million Germany.

The package includes a seat in the big game, a five-night stay at the King’s Casino, all meals for free, airfare from India to the Czech Republic, transfers and Visa fees. Online Day 1’s have already begun on partypoker. The Live Day 1’s begin Friday 2 June, and the final takes place Monday 5 June.

The Nagaland State Lotteries issued PokerHigh with their real money online poker license back in December 2016. Licence owners in Nagaland have to pay a 0.5% gross revenue tax to the state.

It’s not the first time that an online poker room based in India has sent online qualifiers to a live event affiliated with partypoker. Adda52 sent players to Dusk till Dawn (DTD) for the partypoker sponsored World Poker Tour (WPT) UK Festival last year, and also to the WPT National in China.

Andrej Desset With Back to Back Grand Prix Wins

Sticking with the Rozvadov/partypoker theme, how about this for an incredible feat of card sharpery?

The Slovakian pro, Andrej Desset, has just topped a 2,889 entrant field in the €225 buy-in partypoker Grand Prix Germany, held at the King’s Casino. Desset earned a cool €100,000 for the win.

It’s an incredible feat to wade through 2,889 players to win a live event, but it’s unbelievable to do it within three weeks of beating 2,594 entrants in the €225 buy-in partypoker Grand Prix Vienna for another €92,530 score.

A switch has been flicked in the poker life of Desset.

Before this incredible April, he had never earned a five figure score despite numerous small cashes in events held across Eastern Europe. Then, in February, Desset beat 332 entrants to win the €20,240 first prize in the €440 Israeli Poker Championships held in Vienna and then finished runner-up to Fabian Gumz in the €275 buy-in PokerStars Festival in Rozvadov.
