The live poker in Romania had a fabulous year: with no less than 14 poker festivals, an unprecedented number in the 8-year history of the PokerFest circuit. And the year is not over yet! Here are the two major events that ring the curtain down for this season so rich in suspense, prizes and experiences for poker players:
NetBet Open, December 16-22, 110,000 euros guaranteed in the Main Event of 330 euros
For live players, the end of the year will be an action packed one. The last edition of this year of NetBet Open will take place at the Poker Room club, in Bucharest, with a central Main Event of 330 euros and six other side events, four satellites and non-stop cash games.
If the buy in of the main tournament is modest, the tournament guarantees are not: the Main Event will have prizes of 110,000 euros and the entire festival will accumulate guarantees of almost 200,000 euros. It will therefore be a week full of emotions and suspense, because, when it comes to poker, the tension and fun exist only where there is a lot of money.
This is the 15th and last Pokerfest festival this year. What will the 2020 bring? Certainly at least as much action, as this dynamic operator -who has been growing steadily for 8 years- has used us to.
Last but not least, those wishing to participate by paying nothing, have the online qualifying series available on NetBet Poker where, starting from scratch, a lot of guaranteed tickets will be awarded to the Main Event of December 19-22.
888 Road to Vegas
The 888poker online site has a serious eye on the Romanian market and has prepared, together with PokerFest, a new promotion after which six lucky online players will leave for Vegas this summer, where they will receive money and a ticket for Crazy 8’s, the special 888 tournament at the WSOP 2020, whose grand prize is $888,888.
This isn’t just any promotion. It is based on a special concept: the six chosen will have to fight for their chance on TV, live, in six weekly four-hour games. These six, accompanied by a star or influencer, will come under the spotlight from B1 TV, following an online qualifying tournament on 888poker, where, for a fee of $ 10, they will have access not only to a $ 5,000 prize pool, but also they will be allowed to participate in the live final. The first six ranked in the 888poker online tournament will resume the live game, with the cards in sight, every Thursday at 24:00 (except for the holiday weeks).
So we will see on TV six nights of poker where online players, probably still unknown to the public, will confront each other, some for the first time in a live environment, for the unique opportunity to arrive this summer in the City of Lights with the chance of a fabulous prize.
The promotion is open to anyone who is 21 years old – the legal age to play live poker in the USA.
