Over $2,000,000 in Guarantees at Merit Poker Retro 3 from Sept. 17-27 0001

From Sept. 17-27, the luxurious five-star Merit Crystal Cove Hotel & Casino Resort in North Cyprus will host the Merit Poker RETRO 3 festival with over $2,000,000 in combined guarantees, featuring a $5K Main Event with $1,000,000 guaranteed!

For the Retro 3 poker series, Merit Poker has prepared a nice surprise – a new, elegant and extremely comfortable poker room! With 26 tables and a high-class final table area, this luxurious new room has been designed with player comfort and convenience in mind. With three massage chairs, platform lift for disabled guests, spacious and cozy sitting area and brand new modern poker tables, more comfortable than ever before, the new room has everything that players and staff could need. Merit Poker has designed a truly exclusive setup that satisfies the modern poker player's needs and creates an amazing atmosphere for playing poker.

The highlight of the festival, featuring more than 25 events to suit every taste and bankroll, is the five-day $5,000 Retro 3 Main Event with a huge $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. The Main Event starts on Sept. 21 with players beginning with 30,000 chips and blinds increasing every 60 minutes for 10 levels. Main Event players will have plenty of chances to get back into the action with the option of unlimited re-entries until the end of Level 10. Starting from Level 11 blinds will increase every 75 minutes.

Merit Poker is extremely proud to host two former November Niners during the Retro 3 - Merit Poker's Ambassador, the legendary Belgian Mr. Pierre Neuville, who has smashed the record of the oldest player to reach the "November 9" in the poker history, and famous French poker pro Antoine Saout, who in addition to his numerous victories around the world, has a 3rd, 5th and 25th place finish in the WSOP Main Event!

Apart from enjoying the new poker room with plenty of action at the tables, Retro 3 players and their friends can take advantage of the entertainment provided by Merit. Well known as a performer of the most popular hits, a world-famous pop star Arash will be meeting his fans during the spectacular performance on the stage of Merit Royal & Premium on Sept. 23.
