"We want WPT Bucharest to become a major event on the international poker scene, and a 'must do' for any poker player," said Sorin Constantinescu, Regent Casino CEO.

"The combination of the excellent location, special facilities and great tournament action will keep players coming back."

Also planned is a player welcome party kicking off the action Mar. 26 at 8pm at Space Club near the Novotel Hotel.

The super-satellites and new side events begin Mar. 20.

"WPT Bucharest is a unique and exciting addition to the World Poker Tour," said WPT President Adam Pliska.

"Regent Casino and Gamebookers.com are strong partners with the right positioning to make WPT's first stop in Romania a success. We look forward to growing this event in years to come and reaching more players in Eastern Europe."
