See "Live Poker".

Or read this...... (same thing)


The PokerStars.com European Poker Tour (EPT) is pleased to announce an
alternate venue for its August event, now scheduled to be held in Kiev, the
largest city and capital of Ukraine, at the Kiev Sports Palace, from August
18-23, 2009. The "EPT Kiev Sports Poker Championship" is to be held under
the regulation and authority of the Ukrainian Ministry of Youth, Family and
Sport, and in partnership with the Ukrainian Poker Federation. This event is
expected to be the largest poker tournament ever held in the Ukraine.

The Kiev event replaces the previously-scheduled 2009 Russian Open poker
tournament due to be held at the Radisson SAS Slavyanskaya, Moscow from
August 18-23, 2009. That event has been cancelled because our ability to run
the event was placed in doubt due to the recent closure of all casinos in
Russia.

Euro Poker Tour Ltd. sincerely apologises to all players who were intending
to attend the Moscow event, but unfortunately these circumstances were
beyond our control. Players are encouraged to consider attending the
Ukrainian event instead, and to participate in the opening of the EPT's
sixth season.

PokerStars advises its players who qualified online for the Moscow event
that their packages (including buy-in and hotel) will be converted to EPT
Kiev packages; however they will also be eligible to take a credit for a
future event, or receive the cash equivalent value as alternatives.

The buy-in for the "EPT Kiev Sports Poker Championship" Main Event will be
5,000 EUR (4,700 + 300).

Players should note that the Ukraine does not require visas for citizens of
the European Union, United States or Canada (among many other countries)
when travelling to Ukraine for less than 90 days. Players from other
countries should check this webpage (http://www.mfa.gov.ua/uk/en/2322.htm)
or with their local embassy for more information.

We appreciate the opportunity to bring the EPT to beautiful and historic
Kiev, and look forward to exploring the sights, sounds and flavors of the
rich Ukrainian culture.

Well, moved to another country...so not actually slightly. And you'd be just a bit pissed off if you had already booked your flights with your expenses money from your sattie win on Stars, no?

Apparently you have to bribe so many people to run a poker tournament in Russia that not even Stars could afford it.

Ukraine = probably similar, but things still don't cost quite as much there as in Moscow.

Are you sure you wouldn't prefer a photo with my Peruvian Drinking Hat? It's quite the talking point.

Kiev is a delightful city and may consider this on those grounds, but I am unsure of the security here also!
