The Festival in Bratislava Offers Top Experience for Poker Players On and Off The Tables 24 Sep

Everything is getting ready in Banco Casino as The Festival Bratislava starts in just a couple of weeks. In the span of 7 days from October 10th to 16th The Festival will host 50 different events and Team will be media partner of the festival!

We will be playing and reporting from Banco Casino and for sure we will have a great time with many of you. Find one of us on the poker felt and we will buy you a drink!

Out of all the events, most of the eyes may be on the juicy €500,000 GTD Main Event with €550 buy-in, but there will be so many more things going at the festival that literally everyone will find something suitable for their pocket and interest. Don’t believe us? Check out and download full schedule as PDF here.

No Limit Hold’em is a great game but playing exclusively this format can get a bit stale after some time and The Festival knows this very well that’s why there’s a plethora of different poker tournaments to choose from. From Pot Limit Omaha to H.O.R.S.E., 8-game, Open-Face Chinese, Shortdeck, and even Sviten Special plus many more.

Don’t particularly fancy tournaments? Say no more as cash games will be running 24/7 during the series, or you can join one of the many Cash Game Challenges. And if you want to take a break from playing poker, The Festival will feature Roulette, Blackjack and Sports Betting tournaments! If you want to know how to play these types of tournaments, check out the rules here.

Bratislava Activities

Poker is not the only reason to join us in Bratislava as organizers will provide daily activities in beautiful capital of Slovakia.
