888poker LIVE Heads to Bucharest
Fresh from a successful 888poker LIVE London 2018 Kickoff Main Event, which Jonathan Bowers won for £30,630, the 888poker LIVE tour now hops on a plane and heads to the Romanian capital Bucharest.
The 888poker LIVE Bucharest festival runs from Feb. 28- Mar. 4 at the JW Marriot hotel in the Romanian capital city. It features nine events with buy-ins ranging from €60 up to €2,200, and it is simply not to be missed.
A €230 Opening Event with a €50,000 guaranteed prize pool kicks off the festival in style, and that is followed by the eagerly anticipated €888 Main Event with its €288,000 guarantee. You can also get involved in a Bounty Event, a Super Progressive KO tournament, a Deepstack format, a €2,200 High Roller, a Turbo Deepstack and a Hyper Turbo structured event.

Gentlemen are permitted to play in the Ladies Event. However, they will have to fork out €4,500 for the privilege instead of the standard €60 paid by female poker players.
Players in the Main Event and High Roller tournament will play with a 30-second shot clock enforced after a successful test at the 888poker LIVE London Kickoff. Each player in the Main Event and High Roller will have 30-seconds to act, although it is possible to use an extended time chip twice per day should they face a particularly tough decision.
