Taking part in the biggest poker tournament in Europe has never been so attractive.
Holland Casino will pay out an extra € 60,000 in prize money to Master Classics of Poker 2002 participants who finish in the 19th to 30th places inclusive. All these participants will receive their tournament fee back. These extra prizes are not deducted from the total prize fund consisting of players’ fees.

Distribution of prize money: 1% of the total prize money will first be deducted to provide the prize for the “high hand” of the day. If two players are out of the game at the same time, the relevant prize money is shared equally between them.
Places 19 through 30 will receive the original tournament fee, excluding the entry fee and any rebuy. These prizes are offered by courtesy of Holland Casino.

Holland Casino in Amsterdam is again pleased to invite you to take part in the Master Classics of Poker from the 3rd through the 9th of November 2002.

This is Europe’s largest annual international poker tournament. A maximum of 220 players can participate in a tournament each day, and in 2001 the Master Classics of Poker saw € 954,227.27 paid out in prize money. The entire event lasts for seven days with six different „Master Classics of Poker“ tournaments, but, of course, there is no need to enter all of them! The entrance fee is the same for each of the tournaments, with the exception of the Lido Tournament. The buy-in is different for each tournament.
