Street Tour of Ufa in Russia
If you love to play poker but don’t like having to pay outrageous fees in order to join a tournament or play in one of the more prestigious tournaments out there, you should look into becoming a UFA (Uniform Fast Factoring) poker player. In the UFA world, as in the World Series of Poker, winning players get paid and there is no fee for playing. There are also no restrictions on how many tournaments you can sign up for or play in. The same goes for winning a big pot. All you need is an internet connection and a credit card to register, then you’re ready to go!
UFAs come in many different shapes and sizes, and there are literally hundreds of thousands of companies that deal with selling them. Two of the most popular companies out there are Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and World Series of Poker (WSOP). In the UFA world, a player is required to have at least one year of experience in professional gaming. Before you can even enter a tournament, you will have to pass their UFA Exam. Once you’ve passed the exam, you are a member and have all the benefits and advantages of being a ufa. You can play in sanctioned tournaments all over the world, and if you win you get a huge cash bonus and the title “ufa champion”.
The UFC has two divisions: amateur and pro. Each division features its own television station and radio network, which broadcast each event live around the world. In addition to being filmed in the United States, most of the fights are filmed in Russia. That’s right, in Russia – the home of professional wrestling and martial arts. The company holds regular “Tournaments on Belaya”, which attracts thousands of fans from all over the world who fly in for the occasion.
While Russia is a very important place for UFC events, and they’ve even had some major sponsors recently, the biggest attraction in terms of the sport itself is Belaya, the largest port in the entire country. Travellers to Belaya either come by train – the most popular mode of travel – or drive from the airport. The latter option is faster, but more expensive as the cars used are often old, dilapidated affairs. The journey to Belaya by train costs around the same as a single trip to Moscow, and the experience is a unique one: a unique mix of Russian culture and western sophistication.
Whilst in Belaya you’ll notice that everyone is wearing matching UFA branded handbags and jackets. Belaya is also home to many excellent restaurants, pubs and nightspots, which mean that your stay isn’t complete without indulging yourself in some local food and drink. The most famous dishes in Russia include borscht, a heavily salted beef stew, and borscht, a similarly thick beer soup. You should also try the local smoked meat, which is particularly well-liked during ufa season.
The final stop on our street tour of ufa in Russia is another little-known destination: revolyutsionnaya street. This is a vast area filled with miniature shopping malls, snack bars, souvenir shops and miniature cinemas. Some of these mini arcades are open all day, while others operate only at night. They tend to be small, family-run establishments, so it’s no surprise that the prices are surprisingly low – especially considering the quality of the goods being sold. Inevitably, a visit to these tiny streets is a great excuse to spend a little money, as the prices are extremely reasonable when compared to other European cities.
