Poker in America may have unwinded a bit after the conclusion of the WSOP event, but elsewhere it’s kicking off. The Unibet Open is no exception to this rule and the capital of Romania, Bucharest, is slated to host the event for the third time in an already impressive, over-a-decade-long-history.

Unibet, the Event that Matters

The event will be taking place soon, starting on July 30 and continuing all through August 5 at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel. A most becoming local for a most exciting poker meeting of pros. There have been quite a few players and ambassadors willing to attend the event in person, and between the names we have sifted through, those of Ian Simpson, Dara O’Kearney, David Lappin, Espen Jorstad, and a few others.

The talents of Daiva Byrne, Rauno Tahvonen and Dan Murariu are also to be expected to make an appearance. They will all be there to show their public endorsement for an event, that’s truly worth your while.

Quite the Prize Pool, Too!

When it comes to prize money, Unibet doesn’t stint in the slightest. The festival will feature a slew of tournaments that will generate quite a bit of excitement over the next several days. With this in mind, you may want to follow the EUR1,100 Unibet Open Main Event, which promises to be the centrepiece of the entire competition.

Then, we will witness some gut-wrenching action with the EUR2,200 Unibet Open High Roller event that will see some of the boldest gamers test the proverbial fortunes and see if the gods favor them. Lastly, what we consider to be worth your while, the Unibet Esports Battle Royale X will be taking place in plain sight, making it particularly tempting to be present at the event.

The Main Event will be kicking off on August 2, and it will definitely be what the majority of players have come to see. Meanwhile, the High Roller pow-wow will take place from August 1 and August 2, and a fair bit of the ambassadors will be battling it out there.

Pricey But Worth It

The Unibet festival is definitely not the cheapest to play in, as even the basic sets are a few hundred euro. Even then, it’s worth participating in the Unibet festival as it will reveal sufficient opportunity to face off with a new crop of opponents who have not necessarily have made name for themselves in the West but have all the trappings to do so without much of hesitation.

Even the high roller events seem to be rather affordable, comparing to other competitions around the world. With the prices being slightly exclusive, it’s easy to see why the excitement around the Unibet Festival has been so significant in its own right.

WSOP may be done and dusted, but a new series of poker is about to kick off and the events that will crown 2018 seem to be quite the promising lot! We cannot wait to see what happens next!
