2011 marks the third season for the popular EMOP series, and the first two stops at Gran Canaria and Lisbon have been huge hits with players and generated very nice turnouts.
EMOP Bulgaria and other stops on the circuit have taken advantage of a formula that’s proven popular with poker fans throughout Europe: offer affordable buy-ins, attractive destinations, and plenty of online satellites and trip packages to be won.
Players have an excellent shot of winning their trip package online due to the smaller size of the package (as opposed to bigger EPT and WPT events), and they can still expect a very nice payday for the winner of €60,000-€70,000 in prize money; the winner at EMOP Lisbon took down €72,615.
Like each European Masters of Poker stop, EMOP Bulgaria will also run numerous side events (including a €500+10 two day event) so there’s plenty of other action for players that make a quick exit from the main event at the Crystal Crown Casino.
24hPoker is your best shot as far as online satellites to EMOP Bulgaria, with online finals each week that hand out a guaranteed €2,000 trip packages; you’ll occasionally find overlays in some of the trip package promotions making them some of the best value you’ll find in online satellites for live events.
