The Main Event of the Grand Final of the Russian Poker Tour is set to take place on November 12th, and will feature a $2,500 buy-in with a guaranteed prize-pool of $500,000.

For those of you that find yourself in Kiev in mid-November but don’t have $2,500 to enter the Main Event, there will also be a $900 buy-in tournament on November 14th, that will consist of two Day-1 flights, and will have a guaranteed prize-pool of $250,000.

888Poker will run satellites for the Russian Poker Tour Main Event from now until the tournament begins. Winners of these satellites will receive a $3,600 prize-package including hotel accommodations and travel expenses.

The RPT tournament series will kick off November 8th with a $100 super-satellite to the Main Event, followed by a number of preliminary events and the Russian Poker Tour Champions Battle, before the Main Event gets underway on November 12th. For more information on the Russian Poker Tour you can visit their website at www.RussianPT.com.
