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.

“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.
