888poker recently announced the schedule for its 2019 live poker tour and it is almost time for the opening event to shuffle up and deal.

PokerNews will be on the floor throughout the £120,000 guaranteed 888 LIVE London Kickoff event at Aspers Casino in Stratford, London providing video coverage from this exciting tournament.

Cards are in the air from 6:00 p.m. on Feb. 7 in the 888 LIVE London Kickoff 2019 tournament when Day 1A commences. Two more starting flights, each costing £440 to enter, take place at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Feb. 8, with Day 2 and Day 3 kicking off at 4:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Feb. 9 and Feb. 10 respectively.

Although the tournament has a more affordable buy-in of £440, 888poker has slapped a £120,000 guarantee on the prize pool. If the 2018 edition has anything to go by, that guarantee should be blown out of the water.

A field of 547 players took to the Aspers tables in Feb. 2018 to create a £216,565 prize pool that was shared among the top 54 finishers. The tournament ended in a four-way chop that saw each of those players walk away with at least £23,280 for their effort.

Jonathan Bowers is the man credited with being the reigning champion; his first-place finish banked him £30,630.
