888Poker returns to Bucharest and sponsors the World Pool ChampionshipsTwo people that have to swat away admirers like farmyard horses batting back flies from their toilet hole, and in a month they will appear in Bucharest for 888Live.

When you see this God and Goddess, the temptation to seek out a plastic surgeon carries the same winning lottery feeling as flopping a nut flush draw, but take heed, Bucharest Police have arrested an Italian man who has been posing as a plastic surgeon in clinics around the capital.


Jacobson and Saliba aren’t the only pieces of perfection not needing a slice and dice. When 888Live debuted in Bucharest, the €888 buy-in Main Event attracted 469-entrants, with the local lad Andrei Racolta binking the €71,042 first prize, making 888Poker’s first foray into that part of the world an unmitigated success.

The series takes place March 4 – 10 at The Intercontinental Hotel. The comet in this twinkling night sky of a series is the €888 buy-in Main Event with a 30,000 starting stack, big blind ante format, shot-clock, and 40-minute levels (60 for the final table). The only difference from last year is the beautiful addition of a package to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event including a seat in the $10,000 buy-in Main Event.

Joining Jacobson and Saliba in Bucharest, are the equally perfect Dominik Nitsche, Chris Moorman and last year’s 888Live Bucharest High Roller winner, Ana Marquez.

Here is the schedule:

4-6 March€230 buy-in Opening Event
6-10 March€888 buy-in Main Event
6 March€230 Turbo Bounty
7 March€60 buy-in Ladies Event
9 March€330 DeepStack
9 March€1,700 High Roller
10 March€220 Turbo DeepStack
