PokerStars launches Russian Poker Tour
Not content with laying claim to poker tours in most of Europe, Asia and South America, PokerStars announced today it will be starting the Russian Poker Tour.
Poker has exploded in popularity in Russia, as evidenced by the stellar finishes of Team Alex Kravchenko and, most recently, Tony G won $205,000 for outlasting 52 other players. The aforementioned Kravchenko took third place in the event for $77,000.
Both of the PokerStars tournaments will likely have a good shot at becoming the biggest tournaments in Russia.
As usual, PokerStars will be providing some outstanding ways to qualify. Players can satellite in to the inaugural season of the RPT for as little as $2.22 or 111 Frequent Player Points from now until Dec. 30.
The RPT joins PokerStars' elite set of tours, which include the European Poker Tour (EPT), Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) and the Latin America Poker Tour (LAPT).
