Unibet Deepstack Open Saint Amand starts today

By Mad Harper

The Unibet Deepstack Open tour is at beautiful Saint Amand les Eaux near Lille this weekend with a four-day event starting today.

 

We’re the tour’s Official Travel Partner so let us help you find a lovely place to stay in Lille and throughout the Unibet DSO 2017 tour. The rest of the year’s schedule includes festivals in Lloret de Mar in Spain (June 22-25) and Malta from July 27-30.

 

 

Lille is super-easy to get to from all over Europe as well as the UK. Day 1b starts at noon tomorrow and there is also a turbo 1c flight at 9pm CET. The €1k High Roller starts 9pm on Saturday.

 

Saint Amand les Eaux is a lovely and historic spa town, located just 20 minutes away from Lille train station, the UDSO event attracts an average 400 players.

 

Guillaume Poncheral won the last Unibet DSO event – in Cannes – after beating two-time UDSO champion Alexandre Réard. Poncheral, from Aix en Provence, reached the heads-up battle with Réard with a 6:1 chip lead. His 35,690 first prize was his first recorded live cash.

 

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!

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.
