PokerMatch opens in-person residence in Kyiv.

The biggest poker room in Eastern Europe—PokerMatch—decided to move from the online to the real world. The company announced the opening of its offline residence. Now, the PokerMatch Residence, which is located in the heart of Kyiv, is open for the fans of the most popular card game in the world.

PokerMatch notes that no other online poker project in the world has such a ‘home’.

PokerMatch Residence is designed not only for playing poker—players can chat with the room’s team, spend time with their friends, take part in various activities, and just relax in a casual atmosphere and stylish location.

“The offline poker room residence is definitely something new and very interesting,” says Ruslan Bangert, CEO of PokerMatch International.

“I am sure that there should be a synergy between online and offline, as these are inseparable. PokerMatch is planning to build closer relationships with players offline, so we can meet in person and discuss relevant niche issues. And also just play in tournaments and participate in promotions. I’m very glad that we have such a great location with unbelievable atmosphere. I’m looking forward to seeing the first residents! This location will become the main venue for our regular tournaments and parties, and I’m sure we’ll be able to surprise everyone.”

The opening party was held on Saturday, October 9, with a vibrant entertainment program, prize draws, and, of course, a big poker tournament with a guarantee of 300,000 UAH.
Along with many popular poker streamers and poker stars, PokerMatch ambassador and the most successful poker player in Ukraine Eugene Katchalov attended the event, as well as a popular Ukrainian showman Vadim Michkovsky, who recently became the media ambassador of the poker room.

During the opening of the residence, PokerMatch also introduced its new ambassador—one of the best poker players in Ukraine, Mykhailo Gutiy.

Mykhailo is a member of the Ukrainian national sports poker team, the world champion in match poker and the best player of the Nations Cup 2020.

The ambassador’s trophy collection includes a championship bracelet from the prestigious series WSOP Europe and dozens of other rewards.

Knowing PokerMatch team’s passion for surprises, they won’t stop there: “Our goal is to unite all poker fans in Ukraine into a large community, and the opening of the residence is another step in that direction.”
