PokerStars introduces the Russian Poker Tour

PokerStars is headed to Russia, and now you can go along for the rise.

PokerStars has just introduced the Russian Poker Tour. The RPT already has its sights set on Moscow and St. Petersburg and it's going to give you a chance to win your seat.

January 25-February 1, PokerStars will host its first Russian Poker Tour event in St. Petersburg. A few weeks later, it's on to Moscow.

In recent years, we have seen some of the world's best players come out of Russia, most notably Team PokerStars Pro Alexander Kravchecnko and World Series runner up Ivan Demidov. As of this moment, the two men have won more money playing poker than any other Russians.

PokerStars has already kicked off satellites for the RPT. Winners get an $8,000 package that covers the buy-in, hotel, and travel cash. You can qualifiy for as little as $2.22 or 111 Frequent Player Points. You can find the satelllites under Events-Special in the PokerStars tournament lobby.

See you in St. Petersburg!
