Unibet Open Prague 2012

Posted on by RTR Dave

2012 will see the Unibet Open become more than just a poker tour – promising to be a comprehensive festival of Unibet games and gaming. The first Unibet Open stop of 2012 takes place at the award winning Prague Hilton, with around 300 players competing for six-figure top prizes across four days from February 16th-19th.

Unibet have organised a completely new Leaderboard structure for 2012, with no prize-pool deductions this season, and the top three players at the end of the year winning sponsorship to 2013 Unibet Open Events. While some things are changing, Unibet’s reputation for player hospitality will stay as strong as ever with Welcome Drinks on February 16th at the Cloud 9 bar, and a Players’ Party on the 19th at the Zlaty Storm Club in the old town.

In addition to the main event of a €1,500+150 NLH freezeout with a 20,000 starting stack and 60 minute blind levels, side events will include: daily turbo tournaments, cash games on demand, a €200 Omaha Bounty, a two-day €400 Deepstack event, a Ladies’ event, and the Unibet Team Challenge.

After its success in Riga, Prague will see the return of the Live Blackjack Final – but this year it’ll be even bigger and better, with eighteen players battling it out for a share of the €23,000 prize pool, with €8,000 going to the winner.

Eight online qualifiers will be flying out to participate in Unibet’s first ever Live Betting Final, playing for a share of the €10,000 prize pool, with the winner taking €5,000. Every finalist will also get a Samsung Galaxy tablet computer to use during the Live Betting Final, and will get to keep it no matter where they finish.

In the Poker Million Live Final, six of the winning fifty players of Unibet’s €25,000 rake race won €800 travel packages to compete in a six-handed sit ‘n’ go where the winner will get to draw for a potential €1 million prize!

Don’t despair if you’re not in on the action in Prague; there’s still plenty to play for at Unibet’s online poker room. Check out the $3,500 rake race exclusively at RakeTheRake and also the €6000 of additional promotions and tournaments on offer.
