You may have to hitch a ride to make the Unibet Open festival when it explodes with the third leg of the 2013 season in the sunny French Riviera next week, or take a plane, or a bus, or drive, but whatever you do, just get there and enjoy all the poker action and money-making opportunities that unfold in the middle of a massive poker festival. The Unibet Open Cannes 2013 starts at the Casino Barrière Le Croisette and runs from September 19th through the 22nd. Are you in?

The Unibet Open Cannes 2013 celebrates an anniversary — marking the 25th edition of the Unibet Open — and Unibet has plans to make this stop one of the best ever! Keeping with the same entry fees as last year, Unibet Open Cannes costs €1,650 (€1,500 +€150). Unibet's plans include a top-of-the-line poker tournament atmosphere to give you one of the most exhilarating and exciting tournaments spread in 2013 — and you'll also have a front row seat in the legendary Unibet Open players' party!

Satellites will be running for the €2,500 High Roller event all week long at the Casino Barrière Le Croisette. You'll be right in the thick of all the action and playing against French players too! According to a quote from Tony G a few years back, "I'm ready to get my jaws into French fishies!" If The G thinks the French are part of the poker food chain, jump in and grab your share!

The Unibet Open Tróia, Portugal, ran from June 6th-9th and brought a field of 242 players to the tables to create a prize pool of €363,000. Russia’s Dmitry Varlamov busted Mateusz Moolhuizen heads-up to become the Unibet Open Tróia champion and take home €80,187.

The Unibet Open Cannes will be capped at 450 players. Organizers believe the turnout will be much bigger than previous events and if the cap is met, first place is expected to be around €145,000!

The Unibet Open Cannes satellites have ended but you can get a seat into the Main Event through the casino. Start now and play satellites for the upcoming Unibet Open Riga Main Event (December 5th-8th) that are running in the Unibet lobby — don't miss an opportunity to play this fantastic poker tour!

Set up your Unibet Poker account using our links to earn a welcome bonus of €1,000. Take that deposit bonus and run it through the satellites to get a shot at the Unibet Open Riga qualification. Take a freeroll all the way to Unibet Open Riga and play your way to fame and fortune!
