888live Bucharest aug2021

The “madness” of 888poker LIVE Bucharest 2021 is about to start in less than 3 days. Hosted by 888poker and powered by PokerFest, this festival will take place at Hotel Intercontinental 5* August 16th to 22nd 2021.

Those who make the trip will have the chance to test their skills and have a shot at fabulous prizes. The “jewel of the crown” will be the Main Event 888€ where, on top of the 1st prize money,  the Champion will receive an 888poker Live package!

Players will need a valid ID (passport, national ID, drivers licence) in order to register for the events.

Entering the 16 tournaments & their satellites can be done by cash – EUR or RON – or card: the POS available is ONLY in RON currency. Registration will start 1 hr before the first event of the day starts. The Main Event – 888€ – entry, and the HighRoller – 1400€ entry – are the only two events where registering can be done throughout the festival. Cashing out will be taxed according to the information in this document (RO). Prizes above the €10,000 will be paid ONLY via wire transfer. Please provide valid ID & bank account number for this.

For cash games, buying in can be done in EUR and by cash only. For currency exchanges you will have to visit outdoors: plenty can be found neighboring the Intercontinental. Cash-outs will be taxed a 1% fee.

COVID regulations & prevention measures are detailed (RO) here and here’s what you need to know:

There will be 2 desks at the entry point in the Hotel’s lobby. One for vaccinated folk and people who show proof of having gone through the disease. Here we will validate your certificate of vaccination and will issue a “COVID –free” bracelet – different colors daily – granting free access.

The other will cater to everyone else. Tests – both PCR (220RON) & Rapid Antigen (50RON) – will be provided. Upon successful completion of this process, that will take roughly 20minutes, participants will receive a similar bracelet. Please come early if you require testing.

Security will scrutinize anyone past this point for the bracelet and grant entry accordingly. NO BRACELET – no festival entry, tourney registration or cash game seat. For everyone’s health & safety please don’t try to circumvent this process.
