Kiev will host the EPT tournament planned for Moscow

When they chose the city of Moscow to start the 6th season of the European Poker Tour, the organizers decided to shoot off and to capitalize the resounding success of the Russian Poker Tour. The result would have been the biggest live tournament ever organized in Russia.
But the project was meant to be stillborn. At the beginning of July,  the law changed in Russia and the poker was ousted by the Russian government from the sports list, so the possibility of a tournament is in fact nonexistent.
PokerStars, the EPT promoter and organizer, weighed up the situation and made its decision by transferring the first stop of EPT to Ukraine. The city chosen is its capital Kiev. The move was made possible with the approval of the Ukrainian Ministry of YYouth, Family and Sports and the support of the Ukrainian Federation of Poker. In May, The Parliament of Ukraine planned to follow the Russian example and to ban the poker and all the other games on its territory. The reasons  for the Parliament's anti-gambling bill were the terrible fire which broke out in a casino in Dnepropetrovsk, killing nine people, and the danger of addiction among young. Fortunately, the Parliament went back on its decision.
The EPT stage will be held in the Kiev Palace of Sports, at the sames dates, from 18 to 23 August. It will be considered a sports tournament and will be named officially "EPT Kiev Sports Championship". The players already registered may use theirs buy-ins for this event or even another EPT tournament. It is also possible for a player to exchange his package for money. The buy-in stands at € 5000.
