UDSO Bratislava crowns first champion; tour now heads to Cannes

By Mad Harper

Slovakian player Matus Gabzdil has won the first Unibet DeepStack Open in Bratislava for  €11,766, by far his biggest cash to date. There were 86 entries creating a €40,866 prize pool with 11 players paid.

 

Now the UDSO is heading to the French Riviera with a four-day event in Cannes, starting tomorrow. The €550 Main Event is a re-entry, with three start flights. Players get a whopping 50,000 starting stack. This is the tour’s seventh consecutive year at Casino Cannes Croisette and more than 500 players are expected for an action-packed weekend!

 

The schedule also €1,000 High Roller, €200 Omaha tourney and the €300 DSO Classic. Barrière Cannes Croisette Casino is located by the sea right in the centre of beautiful Cannes, and just five minutes’ walk from the main train station.

Last year UDSO regular Jacob Ansellem beat a 550-entry field to win the event for €40,000; he had finished fourth the year before.

The Unibet DSO tournament structure – created with the help of international tournament director Matt Savage – offers a unique structure of regular blind increases to keep the action non-stop but giving players enough time to pass bad cards!

 

Whether you're a recreational player or poker pro, Unibet’s DeepStack Open events offer a wonderful and affordable poker trip. All the destinations have been carefully chosen to make sure they’re easy to get to and hosted in venues offering a highly professional poker environment. The rest of the year’s schedule includes festivals in Saint Amand les Eaux near Lille in France (April 6-9), Lloret de Mar on Spain’s stunning Costa Brava (June 22-25) and Malta (July 27-30).
