Event Location and Schedule

VIP Club Live: Amsterdam takes place at the Tobacco Theatre, located in central Amsterdam (see the FAQ section below for the full address). Here’s what’s planned for the event December 1:

17:00 - The Tobacco Theatre - a restored old tobacco auction house - opens its doors exclusively for PokerStars VIPs.  Enjoy a welcome cocktail as you get acquainted with fellow VIPs, including Team PokerStars Pros Marcel Luske, Fatima Moreira De Melo, Lex Veldhuis, and Team Online member Richard ‘Tzen1’ Veenman, plus members of PokerStars Senior Management.

18:30 - Get a front row seat as we announce VIP Club changes for 2013. It will even be streamed live around the world!

18:45 - Make your way to the bar, with plenty of beer and wine on offer. Gaze upwards while you drink and check out the acrobat performing an artful ‘Tissue’ act above the crowd.

19:00 - It’s time for more free food, but don’t eat too much because you’ll need plenty of energy as we take the party up a notch.

19:15 - Hang out with Team PokerStars Pros, including Marcel Luske, who will be holding court at an interactive cocktail bar, downstairs in the wine cellar. Get tips from the poker legend, or maybe even ask him to sing a ballad. Meanwhile, Richard ‘Tzen1’ Veenman and Fatima Moreira De Melo will be in the bar playing pub games, and Lex Veldhuis will be practicing his FIFA 13 skills in the Cuban VIP Bar. With reputations at stake, who will reign supreme?

20:45 - Watch the big game in the upstairs lounge as Ajax take on PSV

21:30 - One PokerStars VIP will walk away with a National Tour Player’s Choice package worth €1,500, giving them the chance to play the Main Event at any upcoming France Poker Series, Estrellas Poker Tour or Eureka Poker Tour event. For those that don’t win, the bar will keep flowing.  And if you still want to party afterwards, the Tobacco Theatre is just a short walk from Amsterdam’s bustling nightlife.
