  • PokerStars Hosting Baltic Festival this October

    Monday, September 7th, 2009 by t2admin

PokerStars is the number one online poker room for many reasons but one of the top reasons is the many, many tournaments the poker room hosts. Players have a wide variety of tournaments to choose from especially live events. The poker room has created several poker tours and a new Festival has now been added to the mix.

PokerStars has announced the information for the first annual PokerStars Baltic Festival, a new poker event for the poker giant. The Festival will begin on the 28th of October and continue until the 31st. The Festival will take place in Talinn, Estonia at the Swissotel Conference Center.

The Festival will have a four day Main Event which will have a buy-in of €1,100. Organizers are estimating the prize pool will reach six figures if not surpass to seven. Side events will also take place during the Festival and PokerStars will be releasing that information in the coming weeks.

Online players who are interested in competing in the festival can try their hand at qualifying via satellite tournaments. The satellites start as low as $2.20 and free rolls will also be available. This is a great way for a player to earn a seat to the new Festival for very little money.

Tomas Larsson, the Finland and the Baltic PokerStars Country Manager, commented: “PokerStars has hundreds of thousands of poker players from the Nordic countries, the Baltic States, and Russia, but so far there have only been a few interesting live tournaments.” He also stated: “I am convinced that the PokerStars Baltic Festival will attract players not only from neighboring countries, but from all over Europe, including a number of Team PokerStars Pro members and some of the region’s top players.”
