For the fifth time in the festival's history, the Cash Game Festival returns to Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City in London for five days of nonstop poker action from Jan. 3-7.
The action officially kicks off at 5 p.m. with welcome drinks inside the poker room. Shortly afterward, the first of two daily televised tables start at 5:30 p.m. GMT and will be streamed on a 20-minute delay with stakes at £2/£5 no-limit hold'em on the Cash Game Festival Twitch channel and will also be embedded in the PokerNews blog under the Live Stream tab.
The game will change to £2/£5 pot-limit Omaha for the later feature table which kicks off at 8:30 p.m. GMT. Terry Jordon, who made a splash at the Cash Game Festival the last time it visited London in September, is among the players confirmed.
As has been the case during the past three Cash Game Festivals, a trophy and prize will be awarded to the player that wins the most big blinds during any of the 10 feature tables.
Away from the feature tables, festival organizers expect at least 20 tables today with stakes low and high across a variety of games including no-limit hold'em, pot-limit Omaha, Sviten Special and super dealer's choice.
The Cash Game Festival has organized many activities away from the felts throughout the festival for players with the hospitality package. In addition to opening drinks today, there will also be a trip to a trampoline park on Thursday, a VIP dinner on Friday, a rocking party on Saturday and a guided tour of London Stadium where West Ham United calls home on Sunday.
Here is a look at some of the hot action both on and off the poker tables during the Cash Game Festival's last stop in London and a trailer for what to look forward to this year in the British capital.
The PokerNews Live Reporting team will be covering the festival with player interviews and recaps of some of the most exciting action.
