Get the full Sochi experience at the EPT Open later this year…
The EPT Sochi festival is taking place this week. If events there have made you curious about this lesser known stop on the European Poker Tour, you might be interested in details of another event taking place in Sochi later this year.
The EPT Open Sochi offers the same EPT backdrop, the same luxurious destination, but all with a smaller buy-in.
It’s the same as an EPT Festival in other ways too.
You can win your seat in the same way, with packages including Main Event seat, hotel accommodation, and travel expenses.
It takes place in October this year, with satellites every weekend for those who like to get their seat booked early.
Here are the details.
EPT Open Sochi festival: Friday 4 October to Sunday 13 October 2019
The five-day RUB133,000 buy-in Main Event starts on Wednesday 9 October, and has a RUB70 million guarantee.
For those with bigger bankrolls, there is also a High Roller event on the schedule, with a buy-in of RUB258,000.
Packages consist of Main Event entry, along with six night’s accommodation. You’ll stay at the five-star Sochi Marriott Krasnaya Polyana, between Friday 8 and Monday 14 October. Packages also include US$569 in travel expenses.
