I won a live satellite. What do I do next?

All you have to do is show up at the tournament place, in the stated day of your ticket. You need to have a valid ID document with you (ID card for Romanian citizens, passport for foreigners). 

I won an online satellite. What do I do next?

You will receive a congratulation e-mail from the organizer of the satellite, with all the details and information you need to know.

How do I deal with the transport & accommodation?

The same as you usually do. However, browse the PokerFest website: you will often find the best suggestions for transport & accommodation and even special discount coupons for our festivals offered by our partner hotels.

Can I transfer to another person a package that I won by playing live?

Yes, if you have won multiple tickets.  The beneficiary has to meet the legal requirements for playing and not be on PokerFest blacklist.

Can I transfer to another person a package that I won by playing online?

No. The online winner of the package will have to play the tournament himself/herself.

I won more than one ticket to the Main Event by playing online satellites. Can I use them on different occasions?

 

That depends on the online platform where you have won the ticket. Some providers allow you to play other events with duplicate tickets, some don’t. Please ask the online operator in question for more details.

How do I book a seat in a PokerFest tournament?

You can pay the tournament buy-in in advance through our online payment system.

Are spectators allowed while tournaments are running?

Yes, spectators are welcomed and they will enjoy our hospitality. However, they will have to consider some general behavioral rules that ensure a comfortable atmosphere at the tournament tables.

What are ‘Second Chance’ tournaments?

In ‘Second Chance’ tournaments, players who are eliminated before the first break are allowed to buy in one more time before late registration period is over.

Will there be any cash games during the PokerFest events?

Yes. Cash games that take place with these occasions are played by many recreational players.

Can I choose the day in which to play, either day 1A or day 1B?

Yes, but you will have to notify us by phone at the number displayed in the ‘Contact’ section, with at least 3 days before the tournament’s start time.

What are day 1A and day 1B?

If the number of players in a tournament is bigger than the number of seats we can provide, then the first day of the tournament is divided into day 1A and day 1B (these two days of the tournament are played in two consecutive calendar days). Hence, the 3rd calendar day of the tournament is in fact called day 2 of the tournament.

What does Re Entry mean?

In the tournaments that have day 1A and day 1B, if a player who registered in day 1A is eliminated, he/she can buy in again in the day 1B.
