While not on the scale of a normal casino this club has a very intimate feel and the staff are very friendly. We received a hand stamp from someone promoting the club as we were walking to it so we didn't have to pay the €25 registration fee and actually received €10 that could be used on any table except...

We managed to get one first place, 1 ITM bubble, 2 final tables and net positive cashout from cash games - so from result perspective no complaines :-) We got somewhat surpised that the... More
