Armenia is a country with a rich history.
The capital - Yerevan, founded 2800 years ago, is one of the most ancient capitals in the world.
At the same time, Yerevan is a modern developed European city, where there is a lot of interesting things to see.
There are direct flights to Armenia from many parts of the CIS, and Russian citizens can fly to Yerevan with an internal passport (as in Minsk).
At this stage, our team has great expectations.
There was no such poker in Armenia for a very long time, and everyone managed to miss a good game, which means that we can already predict a large influx of players for this series. The RPT Armenia will host the Georgian Poker Championship. The border between Armenia and Georgia is open, and many Georgian players will want to attend this stage and will dilute the already colorful composition of the participants very well.
The venue of the tournament is Tsaghkadzor resort area, Royale Signature. In 45 minutes from Yerevan, in 25 minutes from Tsaghkadzor there is a beautiful alpine lake - Sevan, the Armenians call it "the sea».
WHY IT IS WORTH TO PARTICIPATE ?
✅ EXCELLENT FIELD OF PARTICIPANTS
Most of the participants in our Armenian stages are amateurs from the CIS, the geography of the participants is Russia, Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus and other CIS countries. There are much more cash games in Armenia than at our Minsk stages. At the previous stages in Armenia, cash tables were not closed from the first to the last day. In addition to the available limits, there was a $ 5/10 game every day, often $ 10/25 PLO, the lineups in games are significantly better than at other RPT stages. We are confident that cash players will not be disappointed with the trip, especially since this year we expect a large group of players from Georgia and Iran.

✅ DEMOCRATIC SCHEDULE
We managed to make a great schedule for Armenia. There are many tournaments available with solid guarantees. The format of the main tournament turned out to be optimal, playing in the stages of the Main Event for $ 95, you go directly to Day 1A with the collected stacks. Every poker lover will find something suitable for himself in the RPT Armenia series schedule.
Relax in hospitable Armenia, stroll around Yerevan, eat real Armenian barbecue, climb the mountains in Tsakhkadzor, ride a boat around Sevan and play great tournaments at the Russian Poker Tour. In Armenia, even at this time, the temperature is quite comfortable around +22. All these gorgeous conditions will be available to everyone.
✅ TV BROADCAST
For the first time in the Armenian stages, a TV broadcast will be held - this is a separate issue that the players asked us about. We have listened and are taking with us a TV table that will be used in two of the top tournaments of the series - the Main Event and the High Rollers, which will be accompanied by a live broadcast with commentary and open cards. Let your friends and family see your game live. Dragging the Cup of the Main Event and becoming the champion of RPT Armenia under the gun of cameras become a reality now.
✅ LOTS OF KNOCKOUT TOURNAMENTS
We continue to enjoy the knockout formats. Eight tournaments at once, including the opening tournament, will be held in the favorite Progressive knockout format, each of which is provided with its own guarantee. The progressive format became very popular and we decided to keep it in all knockout tournaments. Progressive knockout tournaments solve the main drawback of classic knockout tournaments, relatively small prize money due to knockouts, now in the final stage of the tournament you can knock out an opponent and get an amount comparable to the top prize money, because in the final stages the bounty for the opponents «increases progressively».

If you have been to the RPT, then you should know that on the Russian Poker Tour Armenia series, in addition to poker, we have a great time, sing karaoke, go karting, play football and mafia, go zipline and have beach parties ... There is always a warm and friendly atmosphere on the Pokerstyle Events series, but in Armenia it becomes really friendly. Non-poker entertainment, intellectual and sports games, excursions and a lot of interesting things await the guests of the autumn stage. Let's get acquainted with the reviews about one of the RPT stages in Armenia.
Tsaghkadzor is a unique climatic place.
Ecological tourism is widespread in Tsaghkadzor.
As a result of a person's stay in Tsaghkadzor, the level of hemoglobin in the blood increases sharply, which has a positive effect on human health. The sharp production of hemoglobin is explained by the highly rarefied air of Tsaghkadzor, the high location of the area relative to sea level, the relatively low oxygen content, woodland and fresh air.
In Soviet times, Tsaghkadzor was recognized as one of the best resort places in the country. Many sanatoriums, hotels, sports grounds were built here. Tsakhkadzor became especially popular when the leadership of the USSR decided that the Soviet national teams in various sports would train in Tsakhkadzor before international competitions, since a sharp increase in hemoglobin levels here helped to improve the physical condition of athletes.
Currently Tsaghkadzor attracts national teams of Armenia, Russia and other athletes. These are mainly skiers, swimmers, weightlifters and many other professional sportsmen. The climate and ecology of Tsaghkadzor have a health-improving effect on both athletes, vacationers and residents of the city.
