Hot on the heels of the wildly successful 888poker LIVE Kickoff at Aspers Casino in London, we head to the charming city of Bucharest from 28 February 2018 till 5 March 2018.

As the largest city and capital of Romania, this metropolis is a good mix of culture, industry and finance. And, with almost six centuries under its belt, you can bet that it has seen almost everything under the poker “sun”.

One thing this capital city hasn’t experienced is the team of 888poker ambassadors about to descend on this quintessential European town - promising to do damage at the poker tables set up in the JW Marriot Hotel.

On board to take on Bucharest’s best are Team888’s Martin Jacobson, Dominik Nitsche, Sofia Lovgren, Natalie Hof along with the newest team member, Vivian Saliba.

If you like to mix your poker with a bit of culture (and partying, of course), this is your kind of town.
