The 2017 Cash Game Festival Bulgaria is about to begin more than 120 hour of nonstop ring game poker action at Platinum Casino in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria from Aug. 9-13. The festival follows many successful stops earlier in the year in London, Slovenia, Tallinn, Gibraltar and Malta.
As is the case during all Cash Game Festivals, games will be available in any format you can think of — at stakes high and low. In addition, twice a day Cash Game Festival Commentator Brandon Allen and a variety of co-hosts will be hosting two live poker streams.
Allen is especially excited thanks to the Cash Game Festival Twitch channel just receiving a subscribe button.
"This marks the one year anniversary of my commentating the live stream for the Cash Game Festival," shared Allen. "I am not only excited about returning for this reason, but this will be the first festival where our fans can subscribe to our Twitch channel."
Last year's Cash Game Festival Bulgaria went viral thanks to a heads-up prop bet between Cash Game Festival Co-founder Martin "Franke" von Zweigbergk and Estonian recreational poker player Janar Kokk. The winner of the match was able to choose where the loser would move to live for a month.
Kokk lost the bet and recently spent a month in the Polish town of Hrubieszów. The location was deemed to be a punishment by von Zweigbergk, however, Kokk was able to turn it into a reward. His trip was covered by all of the national media and near the end of his month a charity poker event was held.
There are many Cash Game Festival regulars planning to come to Sunny Beach for this Cash Game Festival, including Betsafe Ambassador Monika Zukowicz, "Trumulis", "Karolis" and Peter La Terra. These players are all known to love action both on and off the poker tables, so it wouldn't be surprising if another crazy prop bet.
Increasing the odds even more a prop bet is the fact the von Zweigergk is on the way in a Slowball car with Cash Game Festival regulars Kalle Fagerstrom, Kadi Kask and Petra Poola.
Slowball is another event created by von Zweigbergk that runs every two years. The event is one of a kind where old cars are renovated and then transformed into pieces of art by artists. This year there were 18 cars traveling through Estonia, Sweden and Finland.
Von Zweigbergk and others decided to take things to another level and are now traveling via a Slowball car for at least two days from Finland to Sunny Beach, Bulgaria.
The Cash Game Festival is more than about just poker. There are many activities planned for qualifiers and those with the hospitality package, including welcome drinks, a sporting activity, a world-class dinner, a VIP party and a guided tour.
