The Unibet Open Tallinn event must also be canceled due to the Corona Virus
The Unibet Open Tallinn was supposed to take place from May 20th to 24th. But the spread of the Corona COVID-19 virus is forcing the whole world to respond. The planned event will be replaced by an equivalent online poker event with a € 100,000 prize pool and a mini main event. The online event takes place on May 24th and 25th at Unibet with a buy-in of € 1,100.
All players who previously qualified for the live event will be refunded the € 1,100 for the buy-in and a further € 250 cash and € 650 in bonus points that can be spent at Unibet for further online tickets. So Unibet reacted immediately and found a very fair solution for all players.
There will also be an additional mini main event with a € 110 buy-in. At the main event and the smaller mini edition, each player will have a starting stack of 30,000 chips and follow a similar structure to the live event.
Various online satellite tournaments are already online on Unibet. The complete tournament schedule will be published shortly.
Nataly Sopacuaperu (Head of Events at Unibet) said about the measure:
“We’ve taken a bold step in deciding to host Unibet Open online and we are expecting a huge number of players to take part. With concerns about Coronavirus hampering travel for so many people, we wanted to do something really positive for players and make sure as many can participate in the event as possible. There will still be trophies for the winners of the Main Event and Mini ME and we’ll be creating a lot of fun around the event including building up excitement on the live stream. We also hope a lot of Estonian players will join us for the event – and even take it down on “home soil”
