EAPT Bucharest: schedule overview

03 Mar 2024

On the 3rd of November, the next (already the 4th!) series of the relaunched EAPT kicked off in the Romanian capital. In this article, we will take a look at the most important tournaments of the series.

The Bucharest stop is the fourth for the EAPT since the summer relaunch, with previous stops in Rozvadov, Milan and Barcelona. From the 3rd to the 12th of November, the 888 Poker Room Bucharest (a local offline club sponsored by the online room of the same name) will host 5 cup tournaments. The main focus will be on the Main Event. 

Tournament schedule:

1) EAPT CUP (November 3rd-5th) - Traditional EAPT "warm-up" tournament with a reasonable buy-in. Buy-in €250, guarantee €30,000. Players have four starting flights to enter. On days 1A-1C, levels will rise every half hour (as on Day 2), but day 1D will be turbo-charged with 15 minute levels. All starting flights will be played until ITM, with Day 2 being the final day.

2) Progressive Bounty (November 5th) - An extremely popular online format is coming to the EAPT. Buy-in €120, €4,000 guarantee. An even more affordable evening turbo tournament with a progressive knockout bounty, a player will start out getting €25 for every opponent they knock out and €25 added to the bounty for getting knocked out. This is a great way to spend a Sunday night, especially for those of you who don't make it in the 'Cup'.

3) The Main Event (November 8th-12th) is the main event of the series with the biggest guarantee. Buy-in €560, guarantee €180,000+€20,000 in packages. Three starting flights of 40 minutes, one turbo flight of 25 minutes. On Day 2 the blinds will go up every 45 minutes and on the Final Day they will go up every hour. As with the EAPT Cup, every starting flight in the Main Event will be played until ITM.

  • In addition, the top four finishers in the Main Event will receive packages to the EAPT Grand Final.
