888Live London Festival
  • Discover more about the upcoming 888Live London Festival that takes place Oct. 13-23 at Aspers Casino.

888poker is making it big in London from Oct. 13 through to Oct. 23 with the 888Live Festival, a series that complements the world-renowned 888Live Events and gives players the ultimate 888poker live experience.

This 11-day festival features 17 tournaments and a handful of satellites priced as low as $165 and increasing up to $2,650.

Kicking off the 888Live London Festival is a $135,000 (€100,000) guaranteed Opening Event costing $300 to enter. Featuring three starting flights for the convenience of the players, the Opening Event is the perfect way to get the festival off to a flying start.

Almost every day, there is a $165 buy in Lightening 6-Max tournament, which lends its name from one of 888poker’s online tournaments. This tournament has a 36-player cap, although alternates will be taken. Aspers Casino will do all they can to ensure everyone is seated. Fans of deep stacks and faster structures should enjoy the $165 Turbo Mega Deep tournaments running throughout the festival.

The two larger buy in tournaments are the $1,080 buy in Main Event with a $265,000 (£200,000) guaranteed prize pool. You can qualify for these online at 888poker. The other is the $2,850 buy-in High Roller which is sure to attract some of London’s elite poker players to the vast Aspers tournament floor.
