EPT event relocates to Ukraine

Monday, 27 July 2009

The PokerStars.com EPT Russian Open has been moved to Ukraine after the recent ruling from the Russian government that effectively outlawed poker.

The new €5,000 buy-in EPT Kiev Sports Poker Championship (which has been authorised by the Ukrainian Ministry of Youth, Family and Sport) will take place at the Kiev Sports Palace between 18 and 23 August 2009.

Players who qualified for Moscow can transfer their registration to the Ukraine event or exchange their seat for cash.

After Kiev the EPT heads to Barcelona, London, Warsaw, Vilamoura in Portugal, Prague and The Bahamas. Qualifiers are running at PokerStars.com
