888poker’s 2017 Live Festival season kicked off at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic and recently announced a full series in Barcelona in May. 888live is pleased to reveal seven more stops to add to their calendar. In total, there are three 888live Festivals on the remaining schedule along with six Local Events.

The 888live Festival Series and Local Events will be making four separate stops to London. The Live Festival is on the schedule for October with Local Events on tap for May, July, and November.

888poker team pro and former PocketFives #1 player Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman is planning on being in attendance in London and excited to take down a title in his native country.

“I plan on winning the event in London as I’ve always wanted to win an event in my home city and getting so close in the high roller last year has wet my appetite to do this even further,” said Moorman.

Fellow 888poker ambassador Kara Scott is overjoyed at the prospect of winning a title so close to home.

“I’m calling London! I’m going to use Barcelona as my warm up (and absolutely try to take it down). But London feels like home turf to me, and I’ve done well there in the other two 888poker main events I’ve played, even coming 3rd in the first I played with an 888poker patch on, so it feels like mine.”

Along with the previously announced 888live Festival stop in Barcelona, the other Live Festival stop on the calendar is in August in Sao Paolo, Brazil; the home of many 888poker team members.

One of those Brazilian players, 2014 November Niner Bruno Politano, loves playing 888Live events and will be at the stops in Barcelona and Brazil.

“The atmosphere in 888Live events is amazing. You can feel that the company is putting the players first, giving them the chance to play with our amazing 888 team. I absolutely love the 888Live events in Brazil and will love even more the upcoming [series] in Barcelona!”

The other Local Events on tap for later this year are Dublin in June, Madrid in September, and Vienna in December to close out the campaign.

The official locations and schedule of events will be released closer to the timing of each series. Both returning and new players should be ready for an experience unlike any other when the next 888poker arrives at a city near them. Live poker has come a long way and someone who has been around the game as long as Scott is floored by what 888poker offers at their events.

“When players approach me to share their stories of how fun an event was or to tell me how they feel taken care of by 888poker, it always makes me feel very proud to be part of the 888poker team. Since the inception of 888Live, the players have come first at 888poker, as they consistently offer affordable buy-ins alongside impressive guaranteed prize pools.”
