PokerMatch has prepared a busy program of tournaments and promos where you can test your mastery in poker, win substantial prizes and, of course, receive named trophy cups. Moreover, all winners of title championship tournaments will get tickets to the Main Event of the offline series PokerMatch UA Millions Kyiv, which will be held in the capital of Ukraine this November.
Title tournaments and the Main Event
Within the Ukrainian Championship, there will be 25 title tournaments in different poker disciplines with buy-ins from 50 to 1,000 UAH. Along with traditional tournaments you already love, Lucky Sunday and Let's Dance Hopak, we have scheduled tournaments named after Ukrainian cities. Wouldn’t it be great to win the Kyiv Poker Cup, or to get a cup for winning in Lviv Poker Cup?
Let us also highlight the Main Event of the series. During the Ukrainian Championship, the Main Event will be held in three formats: micro, mini and classic. You can enter the battle for the place in the finale with the buy-in of 1,000 UAH starting from the Stage tournaments, and start in the finale with a big stack. A game at the stages 1A, 1B, and 1С-turbo will last for twelve 20-minute levels. All players who will remain in game will proceed to the final day battle, which starts on October 28 at 8 PM. At the same time, you will be able to enter the battle for the prize on the final day as well, with a stack of 50 big blinds.
