Unibet Poker Belgian Championship 2019 is coming up!
Belgium is preparing for one of the largest poker tournaments of the year: the Unibet Poker Belgian Championship at the casino of Blankenberge. Famous Belgian player and tournament director Kenny Hallaert will be the director of tournament for the fourth year in a row. Starting August 29th until September 1st the casino will be transformed in every poker player’s dream with more than enough seats for everyone that wants to play poker.
Apart from the Main Event with multiple starting days there will be a lot of side event action, such as a Ladies Event (#QueenRules), a Deepstack and a Progressive Super Knockout. And of course there are a bunch of cash game options at the casino of Blankenberge.
Christophe De Meulder wins Main Event UPBC 2018
Last year Christophe De Meulder was the winner of the Main Event. He took home a little over 40.000 euros. In 2017 the winner Heinrich Pauker beat 456 other players. After making a heads-up deal with Vincent Verdickt both players took home a little over 30.000 euros. In 2016, which was the first edition of UPBC, Fabrice Lestrade won 40.000 euros.
Pokahnights is setting up an awesome campaign. Before the new room was introduced there were some Qualifiers and now, ever since the room was open, Pokahnights organises live qualifiers to send as much players as possible to the Belgian sea to play along with the exclusive Main Event of Unibet Poker Belgian Championship 2019. Right now over 30 players have qualified.
You can also join in! This Sunday in Circus Poker Club Antwerp the final is played. Don’t forget: you can only participate when you’ve won a ticket during one of the qualifiers.
