Live Poker in November: The Best Events To Play In Europe
There is a veritable feast of European destinations on offer for jetsetting poker players this month, including Paris and London, as well as Antwerp and of course Rozvdavov for the 2015 PokerNews Cup.
Whether it’s your first poker festival experience or you’re a seasoned pro, there will be something for everyone including Main Events with generous guarantees, High Rollers with eye-watering buy-ins, and of course a myriad of side events for you to sink your teeth into.
888LiveLocal, Milton Keynes, UK - Nov. 9-15
Arguably one of the most affordable tournaments to visit in November is the attractively priced 888Live Local Series, which heads to Milton Keynes for a £220 Main Event with a £25,000 guarantee.
Satellites are running daily from November 9th, meaning you can easily qualify for one of the two starting flights — on November 13 and 14 respectively — for close to nothing on the world's second-largest poker room.

2015 PokerNews Cup, Rozvadvov, Czech Republic - Nov. 18-23
We'd be remiss not to mention the PokerNews Cup, which is taking place later this month at the amazing King's Casino in Rozvadov. A €250 Main Event featuring a €200,000 guaranteed prize pool is not to be missed, especially with satellites starting at just €30 – with eight seats guaranteed!
There’s also the chance of winning a seat to the Main Event for free! To get your share of the guarantee and fun, join Redbet Poker and register for the last satellites to the Main Event. There will be three €50 PokerNews Cup satellites on Redbet poker on November 8, 12 and 15 at 20:30 GMT, and if you sign up using this link you'll receive a €11 tournament ticket that could send you straight to Rozvadov for free.
Redeem your ticket by getting in touch with the room’s support service, join one of the €11 feeder tournaments running daily at Redbet, and if you are good enough, you can play your way through the (very) small field to claim a free seat into the €50 satellite.
