More than 70 poker players gathered in sunny Georgia last week for a very pleasant cash game play meeting. Among players, there were both locals and foreign guests. This second stop of Cash Game Weekend has been announced shortly after our first successful event in Tiflis in the beginning of the spring. We were very excited to discover this amazing country with interesting history, great food, and big Poker potential.
The Cash Game Weekend Tbilisi took place from 11th to 15th of May in poker friendly atmosphere of Casino Adjara. The first players and crew members arrived on 10th of May and the Poker action started right away with blinds ranging from 1/3 & 2/5 NLH. Besides international guests, there was a huge amount of local players and it soon becomes clear that some of the guests would not get asleep with one table staying open for almost 50 hours straight with players coming and going around the clock. The next days of the event were full of action on 5 poker tables of Texas Holdem and Omaha with blinds from $1/3 to $5/5. The local players could enjoy the game with international guests from Armenia, Ukraine, Iran, Turkey, and Israel.
Our media angel was the Card Player Georgia magazine; which staff helped us to publish the day-to-day progress of the event. The journalists were visiting the event’ venue about four times per day and covered hot news and status updates of the activities on the poker tables.
Although the Poker action was intense, the Cash Game Weekend crew put in a lot of efforts to offer fun recreational moments in order for some of us to step away from the tables and take advantage of the area.
One of the highlights of the week was Tbilisi city tour with visiting of famous sulfur baths, buggy racing in mountains and Festival of New Wine. Besides poker we basically spent a weekend enjoying the city, local food, tasting great Georgian wines and discovering new places. For those who care, we uploaded hundreds of pictures about our stay in Tbilisi on our Facebook page.
Georgia has charmed us and we are already looking forward to another Cash Game Weekend near the seaside in Batumi. Modern resort and it’s scene of local poker players in the area that turned out to be the perfect stop for summer stay made of Poker, leisure, a bit of sport and beautiful landscapes!
