1️⃣✅ BEST LINE-UP & BEST ATMOSPHERE
Most of the participants in our Armenian stages are amateurs from the CIS, the geography of participants: Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Israel, Russia, Belarus and other CIS countries. At the RPT Armenia series, in addition to poker, we have a great time, sing karaoke, go karting, play football and mafia, and in the summer we organize beach parties.
A warm and friendly atmosphere always reigns in the series from Pokerstyle Events, but in Armenia it becomes really friendly. Non-poker entertainment, intellectual and sports games, excursions and many other interesting things await the guests of the summer stage. This time the series will be held for the first time in Yerevan, literally within walking distance at your disposal all the delights of the Armenian capital with its delicious cuisine and unique flavor.

2️⃣✅ PRIZE and NEW VENUE
For many years the guarantees of the RPT Armenia stages did not exceed $300,000. A similar guarantee in July of this year was almost doubled, so the series in October will be the first with a total guaranteed prize pool of $500,000. By this stage, we have acquired a new location - the most spacious, comfortable and coolest casino in Armenia - Shangri-La, located just a 15-minute drive from the center of Yerevan. This is a completely different infrastructure, now players do not need to travel far to the mountains to play tournaments or cash games in the series. Just 15 minutes and you are already at the tables.
The territory of the casino is quite large, and high-quality service and maintenance will allow you to enjoy poker to the maximum. We will have 22-25 gaming tables at our disposal, a separate spacious hall with a complete ban on smoking, even near its surroundings.
The tournament schedule for Armenia is just great, there are many tournaments available with solid guarantees. Buyins in many tournaments have been increased by 10%, guarantees by 20, 30 and even 40%, while the schedule has remained the same democratic and accessible to many. We are confident that the next stage will be quite successful and massive.
10 tournaments at once, including the opening tournament, will be held in the beloved Progressive knockout format. The part of the buy-in that goes into knockouts has been reduced in many tournaments, which means that the prize payouts are even higher. For example, DDX Championship generally returned to the classic format. Also, during the RPT Armenia stage, TV broadcasts will resume. The denouement of key tournaments of the series will be under the scope of the cameras, plus, a TV shooting of an expensive cash game is planned. In addition to this, there will also be Super High Rollers, which will be held in a knockout format at the end of the series. Every poker fan will find something suitable for him in the schedule of the RPT Armenia series. The organizers do not withhold tax and you receive your prize money in full.
A trip to a poker series is a great break and reset for most of our guests. Of course, what happens at the poker tables is the most important part of any poker series trip, but what else is there to do besides casino and poker? At the beginning of October, the temperature in Armenia is quite comfortable, in Yerevan it reaches about + 23-25 degrees. At your disposal are many entertainment centers, nightclubs, shops and restaurants for every taste.
Relax in hospitable Armenia, walk around its capital, eat real Armenian kebabs, go to Sevan and enjoy the nature of the picturesque country, as well as play excellent tournaments at RPT - all these chic conditions will be available to everyone, combine poker and a great vacation with the whole family - this is really.
5️⃣✅ SMALL EXPENSES
Many people remember the sky-high prices for flights to Yerevan in July. Now, from many cities in the CIS, the price tags are at a consistently low level (the average cost of a round-trip flight is around $ 300). For example, Sochi-Yerevan-Sochi - about $270, Moscow-Yerevan-Moscow - about $300. In Armenia, all COVID-restrictions for tourists have been completely abolished, upon arrival you will not be required to have either a PCR test or a vaccination certificate - everything is like in the good old days.

4️⃣ SHANGRILA HIGHROLLERS CUP $700. $35,000 guarantee.
50.000 stack, 30 minute levels.
High Rollers are an integral part of the tournament bracket, which this time became the second most expensive event, losing the palm to Super High Rollers. You can take part in Day 1, as well as in the final day, where there will be 4 more levels of late registration. The High Rollers will take place in the midst of the main, just like the Super High Rollers, with no crossovers.

6️⃣ VBET PROGRESSIVE KNOCKOUT CHAMPIONSHIP $120+50. $50,000 guarantee.
20.000 stack, 20/25/30 and 40 minute levels.
Opening tournament in progressive knockout format with a smooth structure, a modest $170 buy-in and not the most modest guarantee is an excellent warm-up event at the start of the series. Stacks do not stack! Four entrance days with levels ranging from 20 to 30 minutes, which of the entrance days to take part in, one, several or even all - it's up to you. On the final day, either a larger stack or a larger knockout (at the discretion of the player) passes. This tournament can also be qualified through Vbet's extensive network of online satellites, the winners of which will receive tickets on Day 1A.
Usually, the champions of this tournament always take away about $10,000 in prize money, Arman Arshemyan, who won this tournament last time, earned almost $9,000.
7️⃣ GEORGIAN PROGRESSIVE KNOCKOUT CHAMPIONSHIP $260+60. $25,000 guarantee.
50.000 stack, 25 minute levels.
The Georgian Championship within the RPT Armenia in the popular progressive knockout format this time will also be held in the classic one-day format and with rather large starting knockouts. It's basically a super knockout with a deep 50,000 chip starting stack and smooth 25 minute levels. Everything for a comfortable and measured game.
More than $8,000 in prize money in this tournament at the previous stage was won by the regular of our series Alexey Ivanov.
Cash games in Armenia are significantly larger than in our Minsk stages. Last time, 6-7 cash tables were played daily. This time we will be playing not 60 km away from Yerevan, but in close proximity, so the game cash during the series will be 50% more, first of all from the salary of local players. Lineups in the games are much better than in other stages of the RPT. We are sure that cash game players will not be disappointed with the trip, especially since this summer we expect a large group of players from Iran and Lebanon, who will dilute the already colorful lineup quite well.
Online qualifiers are a great opportunity to come to an offline series already with a ticket to the tournament, and even more than one.
Buy-ins to tournaments or packages will be played on Vbet, which also include the cost of flights and accommodation in a cozy hotel. This time Vbet will hold even more online satellites for the July series in Armenia.
Usually, partners raffle about 50-70 tickets and packages, this time Vbet promises that tickets and packages will also be raffled off in abundance. Follow our updates, the schedule of online satellites will appear soon.
The packages expected by many of the participants will be added a little later.
Fortunately, covid restrictions are behind us and the borders are open, just like in the good old days.
The number of daily flights Moscow - Yerevan is more than 10.
There are direct flights to Yerevan from many Russian cities. At the moment, Armenia is one of the most accessible countries in terms of visiting - no visas and passports will be required from you, in 2022 mandatory PCR tests and certificates upon arrival were completely abolished.
The best way to visit Armenia is by air, the price tag is now around $250 both ways, it is best to book tickets in advance. It costs about $5 to get from the airport to Yerevan, Yandex-taxi works in Armenia.
Multi Grand Pharaon Hotel - a luxurious 6⭐️ hotel located in the same complex with the Shangri-La casino will be ready to provide a special offer for players and guests of the upcoming RPT series. Presidents stay at this hotel, it will be enough just to go down from your room to find yourself in the epicenter of poker battles.
It is very likely that the rooms here will run out and will be booked the fastest. In general, there are no problems with accommodation in Yerevan, there are many hotels in the immediate vicinity of the venue.
A little later, we will traditionally post a discount price list for all hotels with special prices for RPT guests.
Yerevan is an ancient place with a rich history (the city is 30 years older than Rome). City Day this year will take place during the RPT series - October 8-9. Yerevan is a modern European city, where there are many interesting things. Beautiful monasteries quietly coexist with modern architecture, and delicious cuisine does not leave anyone indifferent.
Here they know a lot about jazz, but at the sound of the duduk, the locals always freeze and may even burst into tears. Completely unfamiliar people can tell you for hours about the history of the city and the country, pour in facts about historical figures, and after five minutes they are ready to invite you to visit.
