Vbet Poker Battle of Armenia Cup Schedule Boasts $300,000 in Guarantees
If you live in or near Armenia or are just looking for a new and exciting place to play poker, you should strongly consider heading to the Battle of Armenia Cup with $300,000 in guarantees at the deluxe Golden Palace Hotel Resort and Spa in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia on Oct. 7-12.
The poker festival was launched by the BetConstruct Company to help celebrate the 14th anniversary of Vbet and will feature many exciting events.
The $130,000 Guaranteed Main Event
The festival kicks off with a bang with the Vbet.com Battle of Armenia Main Event taking place Oct. 7-10. The prize pool is guaranteed to be at least $130,000 with the buy-in reasonably priced at $490. Additionally, a whopping $50,000 is guaranteed for first place.
If the $490 buy-in is a little high for your tastes, you can qualify in for a fraction of the cost through the many satellites hosted at Vbet Poker. You can try to win as many tickets as you would like as you can use them not only for the initial entry but for re-entries as well. In addition, players can also qualify for the Main Event via live inexpensively priced satellites ranging from $50 to $110 taking place at the venue.
The tournament not only provides plenty of value but also plenty of play. Players begin each of the five opening flights on Oct. 7-9 with a huge stack of 30,000 in chips. Blinds increase slowly during the first four opening flights with level changes taking place every 40 minutes. The final flight is much more fast-paced with blinds increasing every 12 minutes.
Players will have plenty of chances to bag a big stack with the tournament allowing for an unlimited amount of re-entries each day. Additionally, players can choose to play in a subsequent flight even if they bagged chips to try for a bigger stack to play with during the two final days on Oct. 9-10.
Five Side Events
The Main Event is only the highlight of the festival as there are plenty of side events in different poker formats and a variety of buy-in ranges providing something for everyone in the series. Some of the other events on the schedule include the $200 OFC Pineapple 3-Max - $4,000 GTD on Oct. 10 and the $1,990 Highrollers Midnight Battle Oct. 10-11.
Another exciting and interesting event is the $200+$100 buy-in Under Pressure Knockout Event from Oct. 9-11 which has two starting flights, no breaks and a final table that will be played in an unusual location. Last year, the final table played out at a floating table in the middle of nearby Lake Sevan!
