Israel Poker Tour, 3rd Edition, Will Take Place in Bucharest, in May

The wait is over for Romanian poker enthusiasts! The first big poker festival in 2015 will take place in Bucharest, starting May 11th, hosted by World Trade Center Bucharest.

This will not be just another usual PokerFest circuit stop. We’re talking about a major event included in the ISRAEL POKER TOUR series, a very popular poker festival. After all, we all know that not even the fights in the Middle East couldn’t stop the success of the previous edition, held in 2014.

€200.000 total prize pool. €150.000 guaranteed in the Main Event

The most important tournament will have a guaranteed pricepool of €150.000, will take place from May 14th to May 18th, will have three starting days (May 14th, 15th, 16th), and a classic buy-in of €550. There you have it, the perfect premises for a great poker confrontation with prizes that will meet the high expectations.

Before the Main Event’s start, five supersatellites with a rebuy+addon structure will give everyone the chance to qualify in the Main Event starting with only €25.

In total, we will have 15 tournaments in our calendar with a wide array of buy-ins, from 150 RON up to €1000 in the high roller. We will have Turbos, Knockouts, Deep Stacks, Freezeouts, Second Chance, Re-entry or Rebuy events, for lots and lots of fun.

The first IPT took place one year ago, when Avi Cohen managed to win €41,000 for the title. The second IPT had a gigantic prizepool of €242,730, and Kfir Nahum took home €55,000 after becoming the new champion.


24/7 Cash Games


Another hot spot for the festival will be the cash game area. Placed right next to the tournament area, the cash game zone will bring new fun alternatives at the tables, with games starting from 2/5 RON (or 0.5€/1€), upper limits being just the players’ bankrolls.

The usual high rollers and the action-driven Israeli players will generate a unique and fantastic game composition, where everyone will have the possibility to test its poker qualities both in No Limit Hold’em or Pot Limit Omaha.
