The first scheduled tournament is the RUB 18 200 Weekend Deep Stack. There will be 3 starting flights. Poker players will play each of them up to the ITM zone, which is about 15% of the player field. Then, all survivors will advance to the final day to play until the winner is determined.
Main tournament of the series will be the Main Event with a RUB 133 000 buy-in. Those who fail to successfully play the Main Event can try their hand at two cheap tournaments that kick off on October 9: EPT Cup for RUB 15 050 and Hold'em tournament for RUB 32 200.
