The 888poker LIVE London Festival is back from November 22 through December 3. If you are looking for a great pre-Christmas tournament in the United Kingdom, this is your chance to get your hands dirty and bankroll going.

Ahead of the Holidays, 888 Brings Out a Tournament

The Aspers Casino Westfield in Stratford, London will be playing host to one of the most significant poker events that overlaps both November and December. There is plenty of reason to be excited, too with the event running from November 22 through December 3. The 888poker LIVE London Festival is a sight to behold. With over twelve days on the cards planned, we will see a whole bunch of WSOP professionals flock to the capital looking to carve out a piece of the prize pool for themselves.

The buy-ins are quite accommodating, too, with eleven events in total and the entry fees ranging from £60 to £5,000. With all sorts of competition on the cards, the LIVE festival promises to leave good memories in even the players who end up flopping. There’re quite few events that people who are regular at online card rooms will recognize, such as the Turbo Deepstack, The Hurricane, and Swordfish.

Whimsical name and authentic ambiance are what the organizers seek to bring around with the latest edition. Apart from the reasonable buy-ins, there will be a Super High Roller pow-wow or those of you who are the most daring and quite willing to throw in thousands worth of buy-ins to get a chance at an even bigger prize pool.

The Big Names of Poker to Attend 888 LIVE

888 may be a predominantly online card room, but its on-site events are no less exciting, with names such as John Cynn and Martin Jacobson descending upon London to taste a bit of the action themselves. Sofia Lovgren has already announced her intentions to head over for the tournament herself, upping the ante for everyone who will want to contest the big money in the competition.

One of the most riveting aspects of the competition, is of course the High Roller event with a fair buy-in at £2,200 and a substantial payout, though it still remains to be seen how much people will earn out of their efforts at the risky competition.

Meanwhile, we can give you the figures for the Main Event, which is £400,000 in guaranteed prizing, which is quite the generous reward by all means. Looking into the details, 888 have already posted a great breakdown of what is to come, including how to procure tickets and what the buy-ins for most events are.

If you are looking for a way into them Main Event without spending too much, you will be thrilled to know that 888poker will introduce you to a variety of satellite events each of which starts as low as £0.03. The net worth of the package is the buy-in of the Main Event, which gives you an easy access to the main competition of the entire festival.
