Malta 2016 Memories


The next Unibet Open will take place in the stunning country of Malta!

The event is being run in conjunction with Casino Malta and takes place at the Intercontinental Hotel in the buzzing resort of St. Julian’s from 16th-20th of May. The event will see Unibet Open joining forces with the Deepstack Open for the first time and gets under way with the two-day €300 + €30 buy-in Unibet Deepstack Open Cup which starts on Wednesday, May 16. The second and final day of the UDSO Cup will be live streamed on www.unibetopen.com.

Nataly Sopacuaperu, Unibet Open’s Head of Events, said: “We’re very excited about both this partnership. Malta is going to be a sensational event and it will be great for Unibet Open and Unibet Deepstack Open regulars to get the chance to meet up and compete against each other.”
Alex Henry, Head of Events of DeepStack Open: “We’re very happy to join forces with Unibet Open, it’s the opportunity to combine our forces and offer bigger events to European players.”

Unibet is expecting a huge turnout for Malta after a highly successful season launch in London last month. Among the big names set to compete are numerous Unibet ambassadors including Irish Open winner Ian Simpson, Dara O’Kearney and David Lappin from Ireland, plus Espen Uhlen Jorsad, Daiva Byrne, Rauno Tahvonen and two-time Unibet Open champion Dan Murariu.
The packed schedule at Unibet Open Malta will feature a total of 10 different tournaments. In addition to the €1,100 Unibet Open Main Event and the Unibet Deepstack Open Cup, the schedule includes a €220 NL Turbo Bounty tournament, a €330 SuperStack tourney and a special €110 buy-in Ladies Event hosted by Daiva Byrne. Satellites are already under way on www.unibet.co.uk/poker awarding full prize packages worth €2,000 for the Unibet Open Malta Main Event.

Every player who enters Unibet Open Malta will be racking up points in the new Unibet Player of the Year contest. The race was launched in London last month and is the first involving both live and online tournaments. Huge prizes are on offer including €2,000 Unibet Open packages as well as dozens of tickets for online satellites. The spectacular Battle of the Champions’ play-off will determine the overall Unibet Player of the Year and will feature the top four live players from 2018, the top four online players and the leaderboard winner from the Unibet Deepstack Open.
Live players can earn leaderboard points by entering any Unibet Open Main Event this year as well as the Main Events during the Unibet Belgian Poker Championship, the Unibet UK Poker Tour and the Unibet Romanian Poker Series. There will be extra points for all players who make the money as well as additional points awarded based on performance.

See you in Malta!
