Nataly Sopacuaperu, Head of Events at Unibet, was happy to go back to the Danish capital;

I'm extremely excited to come back to Copenhagen. This will be the first time the event will be held in summer and we expect full house again. It's going to be a great tournament with the debut of a new tournament director. On top of all the poker action, we've managed to host the players party at a venue with a roof terrace, it's going to be great!

Besides the poker action, Unibet Open tournaments are known for their fun atmosphere and plenty of activities outside of the poker room. This venture into Copenhagen will be no different, with a welcome drink at the start of the tournament, and the legendary player party at on Saturday August 27th.
