Pokerfest Live Kicks Off
For the first time ever, Pokerfest has a live element to it. Held at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham, Pokerfest Live features 10 events and more than £625,000 in guaranteed prize pools.
The £150,000 guaranteed Mini, a £60+£10 buy-in event, is the opening tournament of Pokerfest Live. You can actually play online legs of it until Friday 28 August if that’s what you prefer, before heading to DTD to complete the tournament.
Although there is a Seniors (50+) and a Ladies event scheduled, the highlight of the Pokerfest Live schedule is the £300,000 guaranteed Main Event, which you could be playing in for free thanks to PokerNews and partypoker.
This promotion is exclusive to PokerNews readers from the UK who have created their partypoker account via our links and deposited at least $25 since June 1, 2015. If that describes you then you are eligible for the PokerNews Pokerfest Special freeroll at 7:00pm on August 30 that has one Pokerfest Live Main Event seat guaranteed.
If you don’t have a partypoker account, download one via UK & Ireland PokerNews and use the bonus code UKPNEWS when depositing at least $25 and you’ll be able to play, too. Remember, partypoker matches your first deposit 100% up to £250 but only your first deposit.
