GROMPOKER UKRAINE POKER OPEN & ISRAEL POKER CHAMPIONSHIP
March 1-11, Ukraine, Kyiv!
Guarantee ₴11.000.000. 5* Premier Palace Hotel.
Ukrainian-Israeli joint stage.
SPRING. KYIV. POKER.
Ukraine Poker Open & Israel Poker Championship Tour with the support of Grompoker returns to Kyiv again with a joint stage in early March.
More than ₴32,000,000 of the prize money played at the end of the series in Odessa and Kyiv, which is more than $1,200,000 - last year there were two coolest stages of UPO, filled with positive and a lot of positive impressions. The long-awaited return of the Ukrainian-Israeli series is waiting for us from March 1 to March 11, this time the guaranteed prize pool will be a record ₴11,000,000!
1️⃣✅ EXCELLENT COMPOSITIONS AND THE BEST ATMOSPHERE
Cooperation with the most popular Israeli poker series makes the lineups one of the best. A lot of Israeli players come to the joint stages with UPO in Kyiv, and in March we expect about 150 Israeli fighters. It is obvious that the game in such an international composition, both at the tournament and at the cash tables, is very different. Among the guests from Israel, you can rarely meet regular players, most of them are amateurs, and if you add to this even more winners of online satellites at Grompoker, you can safely say that it is hard to find lineups like those at the joint UPO and IPC stages.
Many people know that Pokerstyle Events series always have a warm and friendly atmosphere. The coolest entertainment awaits you: special parties in the best nightclubs in Kyiv, karaoke battles, intellectual and sports games. A great start to spring and a lot of quality poker, our guests come not only for the best poker tournaments, but also for a good rest and breakaway, and this is guaranteed to them.
Immerse yourself in the indescribable atmosphere of the UPO by going to the Ukraine Poker Open Instagram account in the stories section. There are a lot of interesting materials, many of which remain behind the scenes.
2️⃣✅ BIG PRIZES
At the upcoming UPO & IPC Kyiv, we have increased the guaranteed prize money in tournaments to a record ₴11,000,000 or $400,000. Although these prizes are a formality, and at the joint Ukrainian-Israeli stages the prizes are often much higher than those declared, however, this fact shows how many participants are expected and what minimum prize money can be expected.
3️⃣✅ AVAILABLE TOURNAMENTS
Take a look at our series schedule. We believe that poker tournaments should be accessible to a wide range of players, but at the same time have impressive prizes. We also try to make more great events, and not limited to 3 main tournaments, as is customary. Combining the right balance of one-day and multi-day, progressive knockouts and regular tournaments, with a deep structure and turbocharged is not an easy task, whether we succeeded this time we will find out very soon, in March 2022.
The practice of two main events will continue, and two main tournaments have once again lurked in the Kyiv schedule. The first IPC Main Event will take place at the beginning of the series from March 2 to March 6 with a guarantee of ₴2,500,000, with a buy-in from just ₴3400. The second main - UPO Main Event with a buy-in of ₴7700 and a guarantee of ₴1,500,000 will take place from 8 to 11 March. The two largest tournaments of the series, the compositions of which promise to be incredibly bright and colorful.
4️⃣✅ MINIMUM EXPENSES
How much does it cost to go to a poker series? It often happens that living expenses and daily expenses take up an impressive part of the travel budget, or vice versa. In the case of UPO, a perfect balance has been struck.
The capital of Ukraine is accessible from many cities. Unfortunately, direct flights with Belarus and Russia are still closed, but you can still get there by plane. The land border is still available, both in the case of air travel and in the case of land border crossing, a negative PCR or certificate is required (Satellite will not work), as well as a basis for entry. Contact our administrator and we will help you with all the documents, there will be no problems at the border - Viber/WhatsApp/Telegram +380-63-726-52-69.
The new venue is the five-star Premier Palace Hotel with luxurious apartments, located in the very center of Kyiv. A single/double room here will cost players from €99/night, an alternative option is the Rus Hotel (€42/night). A huge number of apartments nearby from just ₴700/night ($25) - a great choice for large companies. Food costs are also quite low, there are many inexpensive cafes and restaurants nearby where you can have a delicious lunch and feel the diversity and atmosphere of the Ukrainian capital.
A trip to a poker series is a great break and reset for most of our guests. Of course, what happens at the poker tables is the most important part of any poker series trip, but what else is there to do besides casino and poker? What to see, where to go, who to meet, where to walk and have fun - this is an equally important issue for many, especially for amateur players for whom poker is not a way to earn money.
Kyiv is ideal in this regard. This is a big city: the capital of the country, here you will find parks and museums, karaoke, nightclubs, new acquaintances and adventures. Kyiv is generally a very party city, and all this is close to large-scale tournaments, there is where to go and where to get distracted. Our guests come not only for great poker tournaments, but also to have a good rest and break away, and this is guaranteed, as well as $ 400,000 in prize money in tournaments.
Add to this our signature entertainment and parties, karaoke, mafia tournaments and adrenaline kart tournaments, a fun FIFA tournament on the Playstation. We know how to hang out and relax, and UPO in Kyiv is the perfect place for poker relaxation and entertainment.
