The Romanian capital city of Bucharest is preparing to host the second event of Season 6 of the Eureka Poker Tour, which features 18 tournaments with buy-ins ranging from €50 up to €2,000.
Among those players heading to the InterContinental Hotel between May 16-22, is Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu, whose late parents were Romanian. Negreanu's attendance will add some serious star quality to the fields of at least the Main Event and High Roller.
There are numerous highlights on the Eureka Poker Tour Bucharest festival, but the eyes of the poker community will be fixed on those two tournaments in particular. The first of these is the €1,000 Main Event, which features three starting days, with the third, Day 1c, being played to a turbo format and allows reentry only for those players who bust on Day 1a or Day 1b.
The second of the anticipated tournaments happens to command the largest buy-in, with the High Roller costing €2,000 to enter. This tournament is sure to attract some of Romania’s top poker talent and will be an exciting event for players and spectators alike.
