Last Chance to Qualify for the Vbet.com Battle of Armenia Cup
The Battle of Armenia Cup with $300,000 in guarantees is just days away from kicking off at the deluxe Golden Palace Hotel Resort and Spa in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia on Oct. 7-12.
The poker festival was organized by the BetConstruct Company to help commemorate the 14th anniversary of Vbet and will feature many exciting events.
The $130,000 Guaranteed Main Event
The Battle of Armenia Cup begins with a huge splash with the Vbet.com Battle of Armenia Cup $490 Main Event on Oct. 7-10. The event features a huge $130,000 guaranteed prize pool with $50,000 guaranteed for the winner.
The tournament is a deep-stacked affair with players beginning each of the five opening flights on Oct. 7-9 with 30,000 chips. The first four opening flights feature 40-minute blind levels while the final opening flight is a turbo with blinds increasing every 12 minutes.
Players bagging chips will compete for two more days on Oct. 9 and Oct. 10 until a winner of the Main Event is crowned.
Plenty of Satellites For the Main Event
Satellites and sub-satellites, including freerolls, are still running at Vbet Poker. If you don't already have an account, simply sign-up for Vbet Poker through PokerNews and you will not only be able to play online satellites to this amazing event but also receive a €30 bonus and have access to earn up to 50 percent rakeback each and every week.
In addition, you can also qualify for the Main Event via live inexpensively priced satellites at the venue ranging from $50 to $110.
Five Side Events
While the Vbet.com Battle of Armenia Cup Main Event is easily the highlight of the festival, players will also be battling it out in five side events. One of the more unique tournaments is the Battle of Armenia Cup $300 Under Pressure Knockout Event with a $50,000 guarantee taking place Oct. 9-11. Last year, the tournament ran without breaks and the final table played out at a floating table in the middle of nearby Lake Sevan.
Players with bigger bankrolls can compete in the Battle of Armenia Cup $1,990 Highrollers Midnight Battle on Oct. 11-12 for a prize pool with a $60,000 guarantee.
