The second annual Russian Online Poker League (ROPL) will be held at Pokerdom from October 21-30, 2022. The total prize pool for all 45 events is a record $25.5 million, with $4.25 million going to the Main Event alone. Players may also compete in standard leaderboards, missions, and satellites.
The features of Pokerdom’s top event series are always being upgraded. The ROPL is now hosted twice year for the first time, and with the set number of events (45), the guarantee has been raised once more. A 25% increase is planned for this round.
The tournaments hosted by the Russian Online Poker League from October 21st to the 30th will have guaranteed prize pools of at least 25,500,000.
While the September Mind Games event included more individual competitions, this figure is still much lower.
With respect to the summer ROPL:
The larger prize pool will be used almost entirely for the Main Event. This tournament’s guarantees are 4.5M, which is a million dollars higher than the summer ROPL.
The two $10,000 and $15,000 Hold’em High Rollers, as well as the Opening Tournament, will each provide a prize pool of $1 million. The biggest change is the switch to a PKO format and an additional rise in BI for the festival’s opening night main event.
The range of buy-in amounts remains unchanged at 500-15,000 rubles, while the average buy-in rises to 2,733 rubles (a near 300-ruble increase).
Four to six tournaments, including 6+, Chinese poker, 5 card, and 6 card Omaha, are held daily. The PLO6 High Roller tournament will not be held. The buy-in has increased to $1,500 and the prize pool has been increased to $300,000.
