$100,000 Guaranteed WPT National Georgia Main Event Kicks Off In Tbilisi On Nov. 6
The second-ever Europe-bet.com World Poker Tour National (WPTN) Georgia is just right around the corner, taking place at the Poker Room Europe-bet.com in the nation's majestic capital of Tbilisi from Nov. 1-9, 2015.
The series features 10 exciting events, highlighted by the four-day WPTN Georgia $1,000 Main Event with two opening days on Nov. 6 and Nov. 7. The Main Event features a healthy $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, with players given the opportunity to play deep-stacked poker throughout the tournament with 30,000 in starting chips and one-hour blind levels.
Players will have the opportunity to earn an entry into this event for a fraction of the cost in two super satellites on Nov. 5 and Nov. 6. The first super satellite, listed as Event #6 on the schedule, features a $200 buy-in and guarantees eight seats into the WPTN Georgia Main Event. The following day's super satellite is Event #8 on the schedule and features a lower $150 buy-in with five seats to the Main Event being guaranteed.
There are also many other exciting events on the schedule in different tournament formats, each in no-limit hold'em. The four-day WPT Georgia Poker Championship kicks off the first of its two opening days on Nov. 1. This tournament features a reasonable $250 buy-in, along with a $35,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The three-day WPT Caucasus Open Poker Tournament is another poker tournament players have their eyes on. This tournament begins the first of its two opening days on Nov. 3 and features a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The WPT recently took interest in Georgia after inking a partnership with Europe-bet.com. Shortly afterwards, the first WPTN stop in country's history took place in May 2015, with local hero Levan Shamatava outlasting a field of 187-players in the Main Event to collect the top prize of $40,460.
WPT President Adam Pliska was excited about the new partnership when the first WPTN Georgia was announced, explaining that, "This new arrangement marks the continued expansion of the WPT global licensing initiative, expanding the tour like never before."
