      There is the Platinum Casino in Sunny Beach which offers Poker games. You will find it at the end of Main Street and there is also a free shuttle bus going there, bringing drunk tourists the whole night :)

      Games are rather soft, you have some of the local regs (which are better than the average live player), but also a lot of fish coming from Europe, Turkey and Israel. You will soon enough find who is who, as the locals are speaking Bulgarian at the table, even though it's rude when not everyone can understand you.

      There is also a new casino in St. Vlas (2-3km from Sunny Beach), right at the marina. It's a more baller place so I guess it would be even softer, but to my knowledge there are no poker games running atm.

      I would also advise you not to exit the casino with big amounts of cash in case you win. Ask them to transfer it to your card instead and take a cab when you are leaving. They also offer free transport back, but I would not take it if I had cash on me :rolleyes:

      Please also note that there is an ongoing regulation of internet poker in Bulgaria, which blocks most of the poker rooms, and some sites are also blocked by default as they have their operations in Bulgaria (e.g. most of the iPoker sites).

      Enjoy your holiday!

      What Kamen said :)

      I'll also be in Sunny beach during the next two weeks and will probably be one of the drunk donks at the tables, that is, if I even manage to get to the casino lol :D
