Unibet Open Season VI
The Unibet Open has long been the most exciting poker tour in Europe, and we are all set to make 2013 our best year ever! We are heading to four amazing destination cities in 2013, taking in all the best that Europe has to offer. From sunny beaches in June to a festive wintry destination in December, all the 2013 Unibet Open locations have one thing in common – we’ve chosen them because they are ideal backdrops for the unique Unibet mix of poker, player parties and gaming fun.
The full schedule for 2013 is:
- March 7-10 – Unibet Open Copenhagen, Denmark
- June 6-9 – Unibet Open Tróia, Portugal
- September 19-22 – Unibet Open Cannes, France
- December 5-8 – Unibet Open Riga, Latvia
The Main Event at each location is a €1,500+150 NLH freezeout and a full package including accommodation, meals and travel money is worth around €2,500. For information on how to qualify, please visit www.unibetopen.com/qualify. In addition to the Main Event, each event will feature a full schedule of poker side events and cash games on demand, plus events organised in conjunction with the Unibet Casino and Unibet Sportsbook, where possible. Finally, Welcome Drinks and Players’ Parties showcasing the famous Unibet Open hospitality will ensure that even the most discerning poker player has the time of their life.
Unibet Open Copenhagen – March 7-10
We are excited to be kicking off Season VI with our first ever Unibet Open in Denmark. The venue is the legendary Casino Copenhagen housed within the luxurious Radisson Blu Scandinavia, which will also provide accommodation for Unibet players during the event. As well as the €1,500+150 Main Event and a wealth of side events at all buy-in levels, Unibet Open Copenhagen will also host the legendary Unibet parties which will help you get started in discovering the many delights of one of Europe’s grandest and most fascinating cities.
Unibet Open Tróia – June 6-9
The Unibet Open returns to Portugal this summer – this time with an idyllic new beach location, perfectly timed to catch the best of the summer sunshine. The Casino de Tróia, situated right by the ocean, will be our spectacular home for the week, and the partying possibilities of this gorgeous resort town mean that this promises to be one of the wildest Unibet Opens yet! You can’t miss the wide variety of poker tournaments and the chance to soak up some rays on the beach!
Unibet Open Cannes – September 19-22
Following the huge success of the sold-out Unibet Open Paris last season, we are heading south to the Riviera for our second French Unibet Open outing. One of the most glamorous spots in Europe, Cannes has long been a magnet for people who like to experience the good life, and with a full schedule of poker, parties and Sportsbook and Casino events planned, the Unibet Open is no exception!
Unibet Open Riga – December 5-8
Riga is a gem of a city, an art nouveau wonder in the Baltics, as everyone who attended the first Unibet Open Riga in Season IV and fell in love with the city will agree. We will be heading back to the Royal Casino again this December, the loveliest time of year to visit – the famous Riga Christmas markets will be in full swing, snow is all but guaranteed and there will be a distinctly festive atmosphere as the full complement of Unibet poker, parties and gaming events round out the year in style.
The Main Event at each Unibet Open is a €1,500+150 NLH freezeout with a 20,000 starting stack and 60 minute blind levels. Previous Main Event winners include Paul Valkenburg, Paul Vas Nunes, Joao Barbosa and two-time winner Dan Murariu. The full schedule of side events for each Unibet Open will be published at unibetopen.com a few weeks prior to each event.
