The Main Event will cost €1,100 to enter and features a single re-entry option, with a winner to be crowned the next day. Back in May, it was Max "SHAPOSNOVE" Silver who took down the inaugural Main Event for €77,320.

To make it feel just like a regular Unibet festival, besides the two-day €250,000 guarantee Unibet Open Main Event, other Unibet Open tournaments taking place include the €15,000 guarantee Unibet Opener on Thu., Oct. 8, the €15,000 guarantee Unibet Open Online Warm-Up on Sat., Oct. 10, plus a two-day €25,000 guarantee Unibet Open event.

The Unibet Open also features the return of the Unibet Open online quiz night which is taking place on Tuesday, October 6, starting at 8 pm CET (7 pm BST). Unibet Ambassador Ian Simpson is hosting the evening on the Unibet Open Twitch channel; all participants need to do to take part is register for the quizzes using the links below.

There will be three quizzes in all, running one after the other, with top prizes including a free €100 mini Unibet Open ticket for each winner and free MTT tickets for those places 2nd to 5th in each quiz. Quiz night will give Unibet players the chance to test their knowledge skills against fellow Unibet fans as well as Unibet Ambassadors. Capacity is limited to 1,500 players so register in time!

Simpson is excited to host the quiz night and promised it'll be a good time. "Like last time, this installment of the Unibet Open will be hosted online, and while we can’t get together for a players party, that doesn’t mean we all can’t get together virtually! Come join me on Twitch today – to chat, interact, or just answer questions. We’ll be having a lot of fun and giving away prizes for each of the three quiz rounds."

Nataly Sopacuaperu, Unibet's Head of Events & Sponsorship, chimed in as well: "Taking the Unibet Open online in May was a huge step for us but we were bowled over by the support from players. Naturally, we all miss the atmosphere of a live poker tournament but we are delighted that we’re in a position to offer some really fantastic, big guarantee online events instead. The Unibet Open quiz night is our way of bringing everyone together – on Twitch – so we can keep up the buzz and host a virtual party.

We hope to see you then!"
