888poker LIVE 2019

888poker LIVE recently announced several developments for 2019, including five live tournament festivals and a World Series of Poker sponsorship.

The newly announced 888poker LIVE stops are in the cities of London, Barcelona, Vienna, and Malta. The tour kicks off its 2019 schedule with 888poker LIVE London in February before continuing with the second stop in Barcelona at the end of May and early June. In October, Montesino Casino in Vienna plays host to 888poker LIVE before the tour heads to the Battle of Malta in the second half of the month. In November, it’s back to London for a second 888poker LIVE stop on the year.

The February kickoff event takes place February 7-10, 2019, at Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford. The £440 Main Event has a £120,000 prize pool guarantee and three starting flights. Last year when 888poker LIVE kicked off its yearly schedule with this event at Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford, a field of 547 entries and a prize pool of £216,000 were produced.

The 888poker LIVE Vienna event in October sees the stop come back to Austria for the first time since 2017. The Main Event comes with an €888 buy-in and a €300,000 guaranteed prize pool.
