PokerNews to Cover the £500K Gtd 888poker Live London Main Event
Aspers Casino Westfield, Stratford is the venue chosen to host the latest edition of the 888poker LIVE London Festival and PokerNews’ live reporting team is heading there to bring you exclusive coverage of the £500,000 guaranteed Main Event.
An action-packed schedule of nine tournaments is planned between November 21st and December 2nd that have buy-ins starting at only £60 and increasing to £2,200. That latter largest amount is the buy-in for the High Roller event running from November 27-28th. Last year’s tournament saw 75 players enter to create a £146,520 prize pool that was shared among the top nine finishers. Matas Cimbolas was the last man standing and he collected £42,505 after a heads-up deal with Tom Hall.
PokerNews is reporting live on the £1,100 buy-in Main Event, which features five starting flights and a huge £500,000 guaranteed prize pool. This event last year had a £400,000 guarantee that was blown out of the water when 656 players created a £649,440 prize pool.
British player James Williams got his hands on the lion’s share of this juicy pot, namely £121,000 after defeating Derek Lawless heads-up for the title; the runner-up scooped £85,000.
Our elite team of reporters and industry-leading video team will be on the ground throughout the 888poker LIVE London Main Event bringing you live updates, exclusive interviews and awesome Instagram content throughout.
