From September 13-16 2012, the Unibet Open will be a very British affair as we descend on the UK capital for the third time. Our venue for the week is the brand new Aspers Westfield Casino in the very heart of hip East London. This amazing new location has everything the poker player could desire, with cash games and side events going on in addition to the full service casino, two stunning bars and top class restaurant – check them out at www.aspersstratford.co.uk. What’s more, the venue is just six minutes away from St Pancras International station by high speed rail link for the Eurostar and other international train services, so getting there couldn’t be easier.
The Main Event itself will be a €1,500 + €150 NLH freezeout with a 20,000 starting stack, and with a 300 cap, we’re looking at well over €100,000 for the winner. It’s not just about the money, though – the eventual victor will join previous winners Thanh Doan (2009) and Paul Valkenburg (2010) in the prestigious club of Unibet Open champions and will get to take home the coveted Unibet Open trophy.
In addition, everyone who plays the Main Event will pick up all-important Leaderboard points – and with three different Unibet Open packages at stake, you can’t afford to miss it. For details on this year’s Leaderboard, click here.
Our players’ home for the week will be the newly opened Premier Inn Stratford, offering convenience as well as comfort – it’s just seconds away from the tournament venue and equipped with everything to keep the poker player happy. And don’t worry if you bust out of the tournament – we’re planning our most spectacular Players’ Party ever to get you started, and with all of London’s attractions right on your doorstep, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing time.
Qualifiers for the Unibet Opens are running now, from freeroll all the way up to the weekly €255+20 Weekly Sunday Final – click here for more info. So what are you waiting for? London’s calling…
