888Poker is returning to Bucharest, with a freshly revealed graphic for the upcoming 888Live. The operator will also be sponsoring the 2019 Wold Championship, continuing to be a notable backer of on-site tournaments.
888Poker Reveals Bucharest Live Schedule
Held from March 4th through March 10th at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bucharest, Romania, the 888Live event will prove a strong draw for the regional community.

With the London Live taking place now and serving as a precursor and a first event for the overall 2019 888 poker bonanza, event winners will stand a chance to fetch a package for the world’s crowning poker festival, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in July.
The package specifically covers the buy-in into the Main Event and it’s part of 888’s half-year promotion, allowing skilled players to make their way through into the most significant event of the year.
