Get ready for a festival unlike any other this winter
Earlier this summer, PokerPlayer brought you news that this year’s Prague Poker Festival will be a little different to your typical stay-over in Europe. With mind sports like Scrabble, Risk and Backgammon kicking off alongside WPT and EPT main events, organisers Living it Loving it Ltd. and Mind Sports (International) Ltd are ready to bring poker players a brand new experience this November. And, if you fancy getting involved, it’s time to clear some space in that diary of yours!
The Prague Poker Festival will kick off on November 27 with the World Sit ‘N’ Go Masters, before the €3,300 WPT Prague Main Event on December 3 and €5,300 EPT Prague main event on December 9.
More of a high roller fan? The two-day, €20,000 Kings High Roller starts on December 7, and, as well as side events and MTTs sponsored by the likes of GSOP live and 888, there’s also the unique Mind Sports Festival.
Featuring everything from Scrabble to Esports, Backgammon to Bridge, the first ever Mind Sports Festival gives those with a love of games outside of poker the chance to test their skills and win some money in a new setting from December 1.

Last year, the Prague Poker Festival pulled in over 2,000 attendees, and Dave Brannan, CEO of Living It Loving It Ltd. believes the 2012 festivals will surpass all expectations when Europe pulls into Prague this winter.
‘The depth of our preliminary schedules and the involvement from leading mind sports and poker brands underlines how valued our festivals are becoming,’ said Brannan.
‘Poker is very much a mental game and we believe that the integration of other mind sports is a logical, yet somewhat pioneering step in increasing tournament participation and giving players of all disciplines an engaging experience.’
