The beautiful city of Bucharest will host a €500,000 guaranteed main event for the Unibet Open Poker Tour 2016 from 1st – 4th December.

The season finale in Romania will be capped at 800 players and organisers estimate a record-breaking event.

This is the largest guarantee that the Swedish operator has offered in the tour’s nine-year history and signals the growing popularity of this unique event.

“We have worked with Pokerfest Romania for a couple of months to put everything in place. We are extremely happy to up the cap to 800 and GTD half a million. This is the biggest event we have ever done,” said Nataly Sopacuaperu, Head of Live Events at Unibet.

Players will stay at the luxury-grade Marriott hotel and will be treated to the famous Unibet hospitality, including welcome drinks, players’ party and lots of activities away from the poker table.

As usual, all of the action will be streamed live at www.twitch.tv/unibetpoker with commentators and online qualifiers for the event will kick off in the next couple of weeks at www.unibet.com.poker.

More details about the Bucharest event will be released over the coming weeks, but first players can look forward to Unibet Open Copenhagen which takes place from 25th – 28th August.

Copenhagen will also see WSOP November Niner Kenny Hallaert will take over Unibet Open tournament director duties for the first time.

Sounds good! Smile

@Jeppe-Unibet@Marco-Unibet and I will probably be there as well (depends on the number of members that'll play). We'll probably arrange a small community freeroll, and we should grab a drink as well Smile

Yeah, thats right. :smileyembarrassed: At first I thought it would be Tirana, Albania, but after a Snap of the Airport in Bucharest I was 99% sure it was Bucharest :smileyvery-happy: 

With such a huge prizepool and as Bucharest seems to be a very nice place to be, it would be foolish not to try to qualfiy. 

Will there be satelittes for the side events or the Highroller as well? We have 3,5 months until Bucharest starts, so lots of time. Would be great if there would be more possibilities in reference to tournaments you could satellite into cheaply.

NO MORE HALF-MEASURES.
