888 MAX Poker Event Heads to London May 25

  • Head to Aspers Casino Westfield to play an £88,000 guaranteed event.

888poker returns to London this week for the latest installment of the 888Live Local tour.

Aspers Casino Westfield in Stratford, London is the venue for the 888 MAX Poker Event and for four days the casino will play host to a £220 buy-in tournament that boasts an £88,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The tournament features a trio of starting flights; players will sit down with a healthy stack of 25,000 tournament chips and play to 30-minute blinds starting at 50/100. Late registration is open until the end of the sixth level on each of the three Day 1s and a total of 12 levels are played on each flight.

Day 1a commences promptly at 6 p.m. BST on May 25 with Day 1b shuffling up at the same time on May 26. The third and final starting flight starts at a slightly earlier time of 2 p.m. on May 27, with the final day getting underway at 1 p.m. on May 28.

The last time 888poker ran a similarly sized event at Aspers, the 888Live Local London Main Event, the £220 buy-in tournament attracted a field of 441 entries. The £88,200 prize pool was shared among the top 54 finishers and Azerbaijan’s Kanan Farzaliyev walked away with the winner’s trophy and £17,960.

Prior to that tournament, a 560-strong field was outlasted by Paul Bahbout who got his hands on £21,780 for his £220 investment after defeating Robert Lim of the Philippines heads up for the title.
