888poker is taking its popular LIVE Festival to Bucharest. Starting February 28 to March 5, the tournament will be packed with exciting events spread across six days in the Romanian capital. This is hot on the heels of the 2018 Kickoff Event in London and is a great opportunity for European poker players to boost their winnings.
The 888poker LIVE Bucharest poker festival will be held at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel. The tournament will commence with the €230 Opening Event which features a €50,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Many players will have a chance to build their stacks during the two opening flights scheduled for February 28 and March 1. This allows for two re-entries during the (late) registration period of the event. The opening event will then finish on March 2 when a winner will be crowned.

The biggest draw of this LIVE festival will be the 888poker LIVE Bucharest €888 Main Event. The opening flights of the Main Event will take place on March 2 and 3. It will have 30-minute blind levels and the final turbo flight on March 3 will have 15-minute blind levels. In all of the flights, players will start off with 30,000 chips. Anyone who busts out early will have a chance to get back in because of unlimited re-entries while the late registration is open.
Day 2 and Day 3 have progressively longer blind levels. Day 2 has 45-minute blind levels and the final day will feature blind levels that will last an hour. Those who make it to the final table will have a chance at the €288,000 guaranteed prize pool. The eventual winner will walk away with the lion's share of the prize money and also receive a package for the Crazy 8's tournament which takes place at the 2018 WSOP.
Besides the opening event and Main Event, there are plenty of other exciting events on the list. One of the more interesting ones is the Ladies Event. With a €60 buy-in, the winner will have a shot at an 888poker LIVE package for the Barcelona stop of the LIVE tour along with the prize pool.
