Yes you can, the value of your ticket will be credited to your account at the current exchange rate and you may be required to make up the difference using funds from your PokerStars account. Alternatively, you will receive a refund of the difference (if the value of the event is less than €1,100 after currency conversion) in T-Money. Please note that due to regulations, players on licenses other than PokerStars.com or PokerStars.eu cannot use account funds to make up a difference, and therefore the ticket can only be used to register for a non-Euro event which is equal to or under €1,100 after currency conversion. Contact email@example.com with a specific request if you wish to do so.
