Qualify for EPT Open Sochi today

July 18, 2019

The WSOP is over. EPT Barcelona is coming up soon. Right after that, the EPT Open will return to Sochi, Russia — and you can win your package for the Main Event online with PokerStars.

First, the basics: the EPT Open Sochi festival is set to take place at Casino Sochi from October 4-13, 2019. The RUB 133,000 Main Event runs from October 9-13, and the RUB 258,000 High Roller tournament is scheduled for October 12-13.

There are a couple of ways you can qualify online for the Main Event.

Every Thursday and Sunday at 13:15 ET, our $215 EPT Open Sochi Qualifier guarantees two Main Event packages valued at $3,300 (including $569 in expenses).

If spinning up small change into a shot a big prize is your thing, smaller qualifiers into the tournaments are available. A range of them runs around the clock with buy-ins ranging from $11 up to $22.

And beginning on July 29, you’ll have a chance to win an EPT Open Sochi package by playing in special $5.50 Spin & Go tournaments. The winners in these tourneys will take away a $4,000 package (including $1,269 expenses) while second place wins $22 and third place gets $11.
