Quiz host Ian Simpson said: “Online Unibet Opens are now a regular feature on the poker player’s calendar. Come join me on Twitch – to chat, interact or just answer questions. We’ll be having a lot of fun and giving away prizes for each of the three quiz rounds.”

The last Unibet Open online in October was won by Unibet regular Padraig “John_smith2” O’Neill. O’Neill turned a €50 satellite win into a lifetime best cash of €79,998 after beating a 387-entry field. He told PokerNews afterwards: “I am thrilled to have booked my biggest ever win in the Unibet open Online. I play on the site most nights and I actually qualified all the way from a €50 satellite.”
The total prize pool in the Main Event was €406,350 – considerably more than the €150,000 guarantee. Some 62 players finished in the money with a min-cash worth €1,767.
Promotions such as extra leader boards, a Bubble Burster Showdown tournament and exciting mystery tournaments are set to be featured during the Series generating thousands of euros in cash prizes.
