The 3rd Edition of MEC Poker Open is here!

The first edition of the MEC Poker Open (October 2018) was a huge success. The Main Event attracted a field of almost 600, generating a massive prizepool of almost €75,000. The second edition, in conjunction with bwin, was taken down by Kristof de Clercq, after a final table deal for just over €10,000!

With a buy-in of only €175 for the Main Event, a High Roller for €440 and several side events, this destination is the perfect event for the player who simply loves to play poker.
