On 2–11 October, Sochi Casino is holding international poker tournaments. For the fourth year running, October is the month when PokerStars bring the big game to Russia in the form of «junior» versions of their most famous offline tour, the EPT Open.
This event is worth taking part in! The autumn European Poker Tour tournament is different from the spring EPT Sochi in being more affordable. Buy-ins to the EPT Open Cup Tournaments start at only 180 c.u. Here are the most important tournaments:
2–4 October, Weekend Deepstack: a new affordable event with a buy-in of 260 c.u. A bigger starting stack allows for more room for manoeuvre in the first days of the tournament. With three starting flights each played while players are ITM, any player can make it to the prize zone three times in a row.
9–11 October, EPT Cup: the classic of EPT stages. Here is another inexpensive tournament giving players a chance to win big prize money at a small buy-in of 215 c.u.
7–11 October, the Main Event. Prestige, champion’s title, and millions await the future winner of the EPT Open’s main tournament with a buy-in of 1,900 c.u. PokerStars’ online satellites offer a chance to win a voucher to this event: the participant package includes a ticket to the main event, accommodation at the 5* Sochi Marriott Krasnaya Polyana, and a travel allowance to go to Sochi.
