The first-ever 888Live London Festival will commence with 11 days of hot poker action at Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City from Oct. 13-23, but not before hosting qualifiers for the big events.
While there are dozens of events on the schedule, the two that stick out the most are the four-day€220 888Live London Festival - Opening Event featuring a huge £100,000 guarantee from Oct. 13-16 and the four-day £880 888Live London Festival Main Event from Oct. 20-23, which boasts an even bigger £200,000 guarantee.
While both of these events are affordable for many — especially the opening event — you can qualify for a fraction of the cost via satellites. Here's how:
Head to the 888Live London Festival - Opening Event For as Low as $0.01
While you can pay the full £220 entry-fee for the 888Live London Festival Opening Event like many players can do, you can potentially get into this event, which guarantees at least a £100,000 prize pool, for as little as $0.01 at 888poker.
The world's second largest online poker room is hosting $30 888Live London Festival Opening Event Qualifiers. The winners of the tournament will walk away with a seat to the £220 888Live London Festival Opening Event. The next two satellites take place on Sept. 21 and 23 at 8:09 p.m. BST.
You don't even have to pay the $30 buy in for these tournaments either. Instead you can play Step tournaments or Sit & Goes which start off at just $0.01. Just keep winning up the ladder until you earn a Step 5 ticket (valued at $30) and then you can use it for this qualifier.
Qualify to the 888Live London Festival Main Event
As you might have expected, 888poker is also hosting qualifiers to the 888Live London Festival Main Event. Satellites for these are a bit more expensive at $109, but are still a huge savings from the £880 entry fee the tournament costs if you buy in directly.
Mark Sept. 21 and 27 at 8:09 p.m. BST on your calendars as this is when the next two qualifiers are scheduled to take place.
Additionally, if you are already at Aspers Casino for the festival or live in London, you can play in one of the five £50 Main Event Super Satellites Oct. 18-20.
