The Eurasian Poker Tour is organized by Poker Club Management which is one of the largest organizers of poker events in the post-Soviet countries. The tour is also partially being sponsored by partypoker which is currently running a number of daily satellites allowing the winners to get into the Grand Final. Those satellites accept cash or PP LIVE Dollars, which can also be used to cover travel and hotel expenses associated with the series. The main event is open only for the first 100 players who pay the $990 buy-in with the site’s currency. To date, only 18 people have taken advantage of the offer.
