SCHEDULE OF THE TOURNAMENTS
WHY IS IT WORTH PARTICIPATING?
➥ THE GUARANTEED PRIZE POOL OF $400,000
Each tournament is accompanied by its own guarantee. For example, in the Main Event, the guaranteed prize pool is $150,000. On top of it, there are a dozen of other tournaments with the buy-ins ranging from $75 to $720.
➥ TV BROADCASTING
We did our best to bring the TV table back to “Opera”. As a result, the tournaments scheduled for November will be aired live with comments and showing open cards. Let your friends and acquaintances watch the live broadcast of your triumph. To carry the Main Event cup and to become the RPT champion in front of the camera — it’s the reality now.
➥ MANY KNOCKOUT TOURNAMENTS
The half of the tournaments scheduled, including the opening tournament, will take place in the Progressive knockout format, with each of them being provided with its own guarantee. The ‘progressive’ format grows in popularity these days, and we decided to introduce it into all the knockout tournaments. Progressive knockout tournaments address the major drawback of classic knockout tournaments which is relatively small prize money because of knockouts; now, at the final stage of a tournament, you can ‘knock out’ your rival and get an amount comparable to top prize money.
➥ FREE ACCOMMODATION FOR CASH GAME PLAYERS
We decided to experiment with the conditions for cash players at this series; from now on, all cash game participants, including the $1/3 limit participants, can get free accommodation in Minsk. Such a promo action has never been run before at the Russian poker series, and we believe that the cash game traffic will significantly increase in November.
ATMOSPHERE DURING THE SERIES
Many people know that a warm atmosphere always reigns at the Russian Poker Tour series. And in Minsk, it’s also with a skew towards nightlife: special parties in the best nightclubs, karaoke battles, and mind and sports games. Our guests come here not only for the sake of the best poker tournaments but also for proper rest and breakaway, and it’ll be guaranteed.
TICKETS AND PACKAGES IN ONLINE SATELLITES
For the latest RPT series in Minsk, our partners at Vbet have drawn more than 100 tickets and packages for the tournaments. Vbet is actively growing, and we expect even more tickets and packages to be drawn for the November series. Winning a package with accommodation or a ticket to a tournament on Vbet is much easier, because many satellites are held with expected overlays, and therefore, the chances of players are even higher. Don’t miss this chance given by our online partner. The online satellites will be held for three tournaments: Superstack Event, Dream Team Championship, and the main tournament.

One of the most popular tournaments within the RPT for people who are maximally impervious to ‘external distractions’. Firstly, it will be conducted in the progressive knockout format. Secondly, the tournament will have the IronMan format without any breaks until the final table. And lastly, the most important ‘feature’ is that the final table will be held in the special, ‘busiest’ place. If you aren’t ready to play ‘under pressure’, it’s better to refrain from participating in this event.
RUSSIAN DEEPSTACK OPEN $450. Guarantee of $25.000.

The stack of 50,000; 20-minute levels. The tournament in this format has been an integral part of the Russian Poker Tour schedule for a few seasons in a row.

The stack of 15,000; 30-minute levels. It’s the tournament which closes the November stage. A classic knockout tournament in the progressive format, of course. The last day of the series, a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, and the struggle for the remaining champion trophy.
