The most anticipated start-of-the-year poker festival takes place in Sinaia, starting on Tuesday. From February 12 to February 18, New Montana Hotel will be the center of the Romanian poker scene, hosting the Unibet Open Ski Edition, a series of tournaments that will boast massive prize pools and fun.
The satellites offered by Unibet brought more than one hundred participants in Sinaia, most of whom are foreigners eager for new adventures in one of the most beautiful resorts in the country. Both Hotel New Montana and Hotel Rina are booked by poker players, so the series is expected to be a major event with a large attendance. In fact, all Unibet Open tournaments held in Romania were huge, setting several attendance records in the process.
The festival will be opened on February 12 by the Battle of the Champions tournament, a SNG in which only previously qualified players can participate. Afterwards, the games will be open to everyone, offering a Main Event satellite and an electrifying side event, while the Main Event will take-off on Wednesday.
Speaking of, the Unibet Open Sinaia Main Event has some peculiarities that promise to turn it into an even more lucrative tournament.
The first is the re-entry option, introduced at the request of the poker community, so that each player can re-enter once in any starting day.
Another novelty is the introduction of the 1C-Turbo day, one in which the levels drop to 20 minutes.
In addition to the Main Event, there will also be a High Roller or the DSO Cup tournaments, but especially cash games available in both NLH and PLO format.
Here’s the series schedule once again:
