Betfair Poker LIVE London Kicks Off This Weekend

2012 Betfair Poker LIVE London champion, Roger Johannessen

Betfair Poker’s popular live tour heads to the British capital this weekend for the 2013 edition of Betfair Poker LIVE London.

Taking place at the Aspers Casino in Westfield Stratford City between Jan. 25-27, the Betfair Poker LIVE London mini-festival will feature four tournaments. The highlight of the weekend is the $650 (£400) Main Event that will see players sit down with a starting stack of 20,000 chips and play to a 45-minute clock.

The Main Event has a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool , which means this year’s top prize should exceed the near-£15,000 awarded to Roger Johannessen in 2012. All Betfair Poker LIVE main events are played to a ‘Terminator’ format where $100 from each buy-in is placed on each entrant’s head. This $100 bounty is then awarded to whoever eliminates that player, meaning you can potentially finish in profit even if you do not make it through to the money places!

Although the online qualifiers for this particular event have now ended, you buy-in directly from your Betfair Poker account.
