By Mark Valentine

LONDON’S CALLING – WITH FIRST 888POKER LONDON FESTIVAL

888poker will be launching its first 888Live Festival in London this month with an 11-day event running October 13-23 at Aspers Casino. It’s not always easy to find good hotel accommodation in London so let us help – we can offer a whole range of places to stay to suit all budgets!

 Hosted by Team888 Ambassador Kara Scott, the 888Live Festival London stop will feature a wide variety of tournaments – from a £120 Lightening 6-Max to a £2,000 High Roller. 888poker estimates the total event prize pool will be well over $500,000, while the Opening and Main Events will boast £100,000 and £200,000 guarantees respectively.

 The Opening Event, a £220 buy-in, will kick off the festival and feature three starting flights - on October 13, 14 and 15. Other events on the schedule include a daily £120 Turbo Mega Deepstack, a £400 Mega Knockout Event on Friday, October 21, and the highly anticipated £880 buy-in 888Live Festival Main Event from October 20 - 23. Among those set to compete are poker pros Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, and Sofia Lövgren – who will all carry a $888 bounty on their heads.
