RedbetPokerOpen (formerly called ) 2014
The RedbetPokerOpen is a series of live events in Europe (formerly called ) with a moderate buy-in and a player friendly atmosphere.
The tournament will be held from the 9th – 12th January 2014 at the Montesino Casino, Vienna which was voted best live casino of 2010.
The latest tournament we ran at Montesino saw a total of 565 players and the €50,000 guaranteed prize pool smashed by 30% taking the grand prize pool to over €65,000!
The Main Event will be a Re-Entry event, meaning if you are unlucky enough to bust out on Day 1 you can re-register and play Day 1B. The Buy in is only €165, and the guaranteed prize pool will again be €50,000!
Starting stack will be 20,000 chips with starting blinds of 25/50, increasing the first day, every 30 minutes, the second day, every 45 and on the Final day, every 60 minutes.

How to qualify for the double bubble guarantee:
Earn 200 player points in the previous 30 days of thePoker Open starting and you will be rewarded if you get knocked out on the bubble or on the place before the bubble!
So for example if you win aPoker Open seat and earn 205 player points 30 days before the Poker Open starts you will qualify for the double bubble guarantee.
In a poker tournament, the “bubble” is the point in the tournament at which the next player out will not win any money, but the rest of the players will win money or cash. In other words, if the tournament pays out the top 27 players, when there are 28 people left, they are on the bubble. That unfortunate player knocked out in 28th is said to be knocked out “on the bubble”.
