Learn About the Cash Game Festival Bratislava on April 4-8
The Cash Game Festival heads to the Slovakian capital of Bratislava for the first time at Banco Casino for five days and more than 120 hours of nonstop poker action on April 4-8.
The festival continues to grow in popularity, especially among recreational players, thanks to its fun atmosphere both on and away from the poker felt. This atmosphere should be even more electric thanks to another first, collaborating with another recognizable poker tour with the MPN Poker Tour Bratislava kicking off at the same venue on April 5.
This also marks the first time that Unibet will be one of the partners, joining existing partners Betsson, NordicBet and 32Red.
Cash Game Festival Co-Founder Martin "Franke" von Zweigbergk is understandably excited about all of the new aspects about the Cash Game Festival Bratislava.
"The upcoming Cash Game Festival is a first in many ways," von Zweigbergk said. "It is our first time in Bratislava, Slovakia, our first time collaborating with an existing recognizable poker tour such as MPNPT, and our first time with our new partner in Unibet. I am very excited about all of this."
Despite the many new aspects the Cash Game Festival will bring to Bratislava, the core idea surrounding the festival will be the same as in the past. Twice a day, the Cash Game Festival will host two televised feature tables on 20-minute delays at 5:30 p.m. CEST and 8:30 p.m. CEST on the Cash Game Festival Twitch channel. Since PokerNews will once again be at the Cash Game Festival, the stream will also be embedded in our coverage.
The British duo of Henry Kilbane and George Sandford, who served as guest hosts during the last Cash Game Festival in London, will be the main commentators for the first-time in Cash Game Festival history. Kilbane and Sandford both discovered the tour as players and will share strategy along with having some fun in the booth to create educational and entertaining streams not to be missed.
In addition to the feature table, there will be endless action on side tables available at any stake and any game you can think of including no-limit hold'em, pot-limit Omaha, open-face Chinese poker, Sviten Special, super dealer's choice and much more.
There are also many activities planned away from the felts for players who qualified through Cash Game Festival's partners and for those that wish to purchase the hospitality package. Unlike tournament festivals where players may be stuck at the tables, players at cash games can take breaks as they see fit and can attend as many or all of the activities their hearts desire.
Head to the Cash Game Festival website to learn more about the event and how to register for the televised feature and side tables.
