Not content with offering great satellites to their own Unibet Open Tour, the good folks at Unibet Poker are also hosting qualifiers to two of the other biggest events of the year. Two packages can be won every week worth €3,100, and the winners get to pick between the Gibraltar Poker Masters in September or WSOP-E side event in Cannes in October.
Every Sunday until August 2, 2011, two packages will be guaranteed in the €320 Gibraltar - Cannes 2011 Weekly Final at 2030 GMT. If you win you can simply choose which event you would prefer to play, and if you win two packages you can attend both. Satellites start at just €2.50!
€3,100 WSOP-E Cannes Riviera Package – October 7-12
- €1000+€90 buy-in to the no-limit hold’em event (5-day tournament)
- 5-night hotel accommodation at the four-star Hotel Gray D’Albion.
- €800 travel and spending money
- Welcome drinks on Friday night
€3,100 Gibraltar Pokermasters Package – High Roller Deepstack Event – 9-11 September
- £1000+£10 buy-in to high-roller deepstack tournament
- 4-night hotel accommodation at the O’Callaghan Elliot
- 3 nights of buffet dinners at the Gala Casino
- €450 Casino Chips
- €700 travel and spending money
- Welcome drinks/dinner on Thursday night
If you do take down one of the packages, how do you choose between them? Both take place at luxury European resorts and are a similar buy-in. The Gibraltar Poker Masters is likely to be much softer and the weather will be much nicer because of the time of year. Cannes is going to be a much bigger and tougher event, but it is for a WSOP bracelet and potentially a bigger prize pool.
So if you are looking to have a fun trip away, perhaps the Gibraltar package is for you, and if you are looking for fame and glory, go to the WSOP-E. The easiest way to solve this dilemma is to try and win both packages.
