    Next month, the Cash Game Festival and MPN Poker Tour are joining forces for the first time to offer players the best in both cash games and tournament poker. What’s more, they’re doing so in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia.

    Two Worlds Collide

    From April 4-8, the two tours are set to host simultaneous events at Banco Casino Bratislava. The Cash Game Festival will focus on providing attendees a full slate of ring games, while the MPN Poker Tour will host nine tournaments over the course of five days.

    The Cash Game Festival, which launched in 2014 by Martin “Franke” von Zweigbergk, aums to offer cash game players a great venue filled with good mixed games and fun social activities. Basically, they wanted to capture the tournament atmosphere and apply it to cash games.

    The first event was a local festival in Tallinn, and since then has grown into 5-day festivals offering 24/7 cash games across Europe. Not only that, they’ve grown to the point where they’re streaming the action on Twitch. In Bratislava, the stream will be hosted by UK poker players Henry Kilbane and George Sandford.

    After the stop in Bratislava, the Cash Game Festival will return to Tallinn from April 25-29. The Olympic Park Casino will play host to the festival, which will kick off with welcome drinks.

    Focus on Recreation

    Like the Cash Game Festival, the MPN Poker Tour originated in 2014 with their first event at Aspers Casino London, which later this month is playing host to the WPT500 London. The MPN Poker Tour mission is “Fun, Friendly and Affordable,” and they seek to meet it by going to offbeat destinations and offering tournaments for recreational players.

    “I’m looking forward to running my first MPN Poker Tour event in Bratislava,” said MPN Event Manager Richard Cunningham. “After attending every MPN Poker Tour event so far as a poker operator, I’m super excited at the prospect of seeing things from the other side of the fence.”

    April’s event will mark the MPN Poker Tour’s first stop in Slovakia, and they’ll offer a €150,000 GTD on their €550 buy-in Main Event. Other tournaments on the nine-event schedule include a €110 Win The Button, €150 MPNPT Slovakia Poker Cup, and MPNPT Omaha Cup.

    The tour has also held stops in such locales as Morocco, Vienna, and Malta. Among those to capture MSPT Poker Tour titles in the past are Kilian Kramer (2017 MPNPT Vienna for €50,000), Alessandro Siena (2017 MPNPT Malta for €35,000), Tim Chung (2017 MPNPT Manchester for €29,900), and Sebastien Compte (2016 MPNPT Morocco for €26,000).
