Largest Field Ever Expected for Smart Poker Tour #4
Smart Poker Tour #4 visits Monte Casino in Sofia, Bulgaria from November 30th to December 5th. The Smart Poker Tour has quickly found success throughout Bulgaria in just a few stops. So much so that the fourth-ever stop of the Smart Poker Tour is expecting its largest field ever. The Smart Poker Tour #4 Main Event boasts a guarantee of BGN 300,000.
“This will undoubtedly be the biggest edition of the Smart Poker Tour so far. A great tournament schedule, €150,000 GTD prize pool, ultra-luxurious poker room, crazy cash game action, and lots and LOTS of fun in the heart of the Bulgarian capital – Sofia.” Relayed CEO of Smart Poker Tour, Simeon Tsonev.
“Our first festival was held just 5 months ago and attracted 231 entries. Our second edition? 316 entries. Our third stop back in August reached 385 entries. We are aiming to break the record once again. Smart Poker Tour #4 is going to be massive!”

Venue & Accommodations
Monte Casino lies in the heart of Sofia inside the five-star InterContinental Hotel. The venue strives to be a leader in world-class gaming going above and beyond the typical casino experience. It spans over 1,500 square meters offering live table games, slot machines, and a brand-new poker room.
Tsonev expressed his pleasure with the Smart Poker Tour’s latest partner. “The venue is simply stunning – brand new luxurious casino and poker room located right in the center of the city – with a wide variety of bars, restaurants, and touristic sights nearby. The nightlife in Sofia is definitely worth exploring: high quality at super affordable prices.”
Big Things Coming in 2023
Tsonev and his team are already busy working on the 2023 season. The first festival of 2023 will see the Smart Poker Tour leave Bulgaria for the first time. “We have so many amazing plans for 2023, starting with a mega festival in January in the capital of Romania – Bucharest. A €500 main event with a whopping €250,000 GTD and a special High Roller Event with €100,000 GTD. And this is just the beginning!”
Smart Poker Tour #5 will carry the largest guarantee to date and will undoubtedly be another record-setting festival for the young tour. The schedule for Smart Poker Tour #5 can be found here.
