After the inauguration ceremony that took place on 8th of August and which has pleasantly surprised the entire poker community on the Someș River, followed a full month of high quality poker and guaranteed tournaments that have animated the Cluj city and have prepared it for the Pokerfest festival.
Last week in Cluj there were 147 entries to the Pokerfest Cluj Main Event, and the winner Daniel Lup, received 20,000 Euros at his first participation in the Pokerfest circuit.
Royal Poker was the favourite location for the people of Ardeal during this period, the side events organized have had great success and the atmosphere, the on-site bar and restaurant were able to keep the club open almost 24 hours a day during the 5 days period of the festival.
Royal Poker had for the first time a live stream broadcast with a sportcaster. The final table of Pokerfest Cluj was watched throughout the day by many fans of the Pokerfest circuit.
The plans of the Royal Poker for this fall are just at the beggining. In October (9th-12th) WPTN Warm-up Euro, 200,000 Euro Guaranteed, E 340 (re-entry) will be take place at Cluj with 2 days of start. The tournament is organized in partnership with the Concord Card Casino Wien. 10% of all players will be awarded, and they continue day 2 in Vienna after less than a week time.
Players who will succeed two qualify will receive a bonus of 2,000 euros, continuing day 2 with the highest stack; These qualifications include those 3 days of start in Vienna.
WPTN warm-up Cluj will have 2 Mega satellites on Thursday (09.10 am) and Friday (10.10 am) for Day 1A and a Mega satellite on Saturday (11.10 am) for Day 1B, the satellites having 30 guaranteed packages (10 for each day). During this period, Royal Poker will also organized 2 side events guaranteed to 10,000 lei (150+30 (1R +1A) and 200+ 100+ 30 Knockouts). Throughout WPTN the cash game tables will be open to all the stakes for both omaha and holdem.
“We expect to host at least 200 players daily during the event‘s two days of start! The buy-in is ideal for such a tournament, and the cumulative prizes from all CCC will exceed the guaranteed ones! It is a perfect situation for the Romanian players, because they will reduce their costs significantly by playing the tournament in Romania, thus saving money that one invests for travelling to Austria, accommodation and subsistence.
According to my calculations, by playing in Romania with the 4 days spent in Cluj, one saves at least one re-entry. Very important is the fact that once qualified you have the option to play during the start days in Vienna 1a, 1b and 1 c, and if you succeed to qualify once more you receive a bonus of 2,000 euros, having the chance to play the WPT Vienna Main Event. ” Dan Semenescu – Manager of the Royal Poker Club
In November, Royal Poker will also host two days of start-up for the prestigious Concord Million, tournament with a 550 euros buy-in and with a guaranteed prize pool of € 1,000,000.
