Five reasons to join us in PokerFest Cluj

The next stage in PokerFest Romania Circuit starts in two weeks and will be hosted by Transylvania’s most important city, Cluj Napoca. The festival is scheduled between March 11th – March 15th, offering a variety of poker tournaments, the most important of them being the Main Event with a buy-in of €700, where we expect around 250 players.

Why would you be one of those players? Here are five of the most important advantages.

1. Very generous structure in the Main Event

Most of world’s tournaments aligned to this buy-in level don’t offer a very impressive structure. These tournaments are usually played in a turbo format with a relatively small starting stack. But in PokerFest Cluj-Napoca, things will be completely different.
In our main event, every player starts with 20.000 chips, first level being 50/100. During the first day, levels increase every 45 minutes, but starting with day 2 and day 3, each level lasts 60 minutes.
In contrast, most tournaments with buy-ins ranging from €500 to €1.000 will offer you up to 12.000 starting chips and 40 minute-levels, or less.
As a special mention, in March 11th and March 12th, there will be two supersatellites played in a rebuy+addon structure, with a buy-in of 150+30 RON (just about 40 EUR), where the usual qualification rate is very high, one in five.

2. Interesting side-events

There are two side-events besides the main event, and these tourneys offer new chances to some cash, but also to develop your poker skills for low buy-ins, but good prizepools.
The first side-event starts in March 12th, with a buy-in of €150 and a second chance in case you bust early. The second side-event is played in a knockout format and starts in March 14th, with a buy-in of €330, including €100 bounty for every registered player.

Main Event Buy-in: 630+70€, Second Chance
Side-event #1: 135+15€, Second Chance
Side-event #2: 200+100+30€ Knockout
Supersatellites: 150+30 RON, rebuy+addon
