The next summer festival will be hosted again by Vox Maris, at Costineşti and it will last a week
Even if the poker world is full of pros, poker is not a profession. At least not at its origins. At the time, it was a board game and money was staked only as a way to do things more exciting. Obviously, you can play for toothpicks, but … how do you want to bluff your friends when you threaten that they will lose a dozen of wooden sticks if you will call on the river?
So even professionals in poker must accept the fact that this game is primarily a way to have fun and adapt, mentioning in their holidays agendas tournaments and cash games, even if summer is in its full and everyone would prefer a lounge chair and a cocktail to the hours of grind at the tables.
Poker operators have understood this compromise and have adapted organizing poker festivals in holiday locations in an effort to combine poker with fun, to give everyone what they want. In Romania, beachfront poker parties have become a tradition. From 2012 until today, year after year, PokerFest reserves two slots in its event calendar for the Romanian seaside where it organizes series of tournaments to which the players can take their family or friends with so they can be able to mix fun with work. This mix is successful year after year, because the festivals at the Black Sea are constantly overwhelmed with professional poker players and amateurs.
In 2016, the first output of poker at the seaside happened in Costineşti where PokerFest allied with online room 888poker for a week-long festival concluded on June 24, called 888 Live SummerFest, a successful event both as a festival of poker and as a plain and simple holiday. The Lush and exclusive premises of Vox Maris complex in Costinesti was one of the main ingredients of this poker stay, along with big prizes and a multitude of options during the festival.
NetBet Open – a “family friendly” festival
Naturally, given that things went so well, the next summer festival will be held again at Vox Maris and will be a week long. This time, PokerFest partnered with NetBet, the first gaming site licensed in Romania, for a series of tournaments called Open NetBet which will have its first edition w between August 1st and 7 at Vox Maris in Costineşti.
The main event of the series is a Main Event of € 550, accompanied by a consistent series of cheap satellites and side-events of all sizes and levels of buy-in. Total prizes guaranteed by the organizer are worth 150,000 euros, which makes this festival not only a week of vacation at sea but also an opportunity to seriously compete at tables, the prizes will be larger and numerous, trophies will be awarded and anyone can take home the big money.
0 euro = 550 euro? No need for magic, just a little bit of chance
As always, participation is not allowed to those with money, but also to aspirants, because NetBet room held a series of online qualifying satellites to the Main Event of 550 euros, starting from zero. Yes, from scratch, because NetBet daily freerolls providing “steps” vouchers to the finals worth of 33 euros which will take place on Thursday and Sunday.
What’s more enjoyable than a perfect compromise? Everyone leaves happy, and this is the objective of this summer festival. Who wants sunbathing and relaxing in the family will have what they want, who wants poker 24/24 will have that option. So: August 1st to 7, Vox Maris, poker and holiday, all in the same package.
