Shalom friends!

We are glad to present you the announcement of a large joint Ukrainian-Israeli stage of UKRAINE POKER OPEN and the most famous Israeli poker series ISRAEL POKER CHAMPIONSHIP TOUR with the support of Grompoker in the capital of Ukraine.

The future large-scale stage will be held in Kyiv from 7 to 17 October, the guaranteed prize pool of the series is ₴ 10.000.000 ($ 370.000).

We have finalized the tournament schedule taking into account the latest offline poker trends and the wishes of our guests, 11 days of exciting tournament formats, cash games and truly international lineups are waiting for you. And of course, the unique atmosphere of friendship, relaxation and great poker in Kyiv.

The guarantee of the series will be 10 million, we are sure that it will be exceeded with the same ease as at our last stage UPO Odessa in early August, where about 17 million were collected. And this means even more and more prizes for our participants.

About 100 players from Israel were supposed to fly to Odessa for the August stage of UPO, due to quarantine restrictions adopted in Israel, about 20 participants flew to Odessa (upon returning home, the Israelis had to go through a 7-day quarantine), and the purchased tickets were postponed. Now these restrictions have been lifted, which means that more than 100 Israeli guests will arrive in Kiev and an unusual sight for Ukraine awaits us. Pokerstyle Events makes a special effort to attract international guests, so don't be surprised if you see guests from Poland, Germany, Turkey or South Africa next to you.
