Perhaps the only thing more fun than throwing some clothes in a duffle bag and hopping on a flight for a highly anticipated poker vacation is to do exactly that but with a couple of your best friends in tow.
In their new promotion, 888poker is giving their players a chance to win a special trip to the UK to participate in the 888poker LIVE London Festival. More specifically, the package includes a stake to splash around in an exclusive “Bros vs. Pros” cash game as well as tickets to hit the pitch and watch a football match.
First things first: on November 14 and 17 at 21:00 GMT (4:00 PM ET) players need to log-in and play in either (or both) of the two $1 buy-in Bros vs. Pros online qualifying events. The tournaments have an $888 guarantee, however – and this is important – they are password protected. It’s easy to discover the password though, players simply need to follow along with 888poker’s social media feeds where they will be given out.
Once players uncover the password, register for the tournaments and survive to make the top five in either of the qualifiers. Then, the ten players who make it to the end will compete in the final 10-person Sit & Go on November 18, again taking place at 21:00 GMT (4:00 PM ET). The winner of that contest takes home the Bros vs Pros grand prize as well as gets to surprise two of their best friends with a VIP trip to London.
The package is a fun one. It grants a seat into the £1,100 $500,000 GTD 888poker LIVE London Main Event, tickets to the upcoming football (soccer) match between the London Arsenal and the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and £1,000 stake for the Bros vs Pros cash game.
Battle The Pros
The Bros vs Pros cash game is an invite-only cash game featuring some of the game’s top names. 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Scott Blumstein, three-time WSOP Poker Players Championship Winner Michael ‘the Grinder’ Mizrachi, 888poker ambassadors Dominik Nitsche, Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot and Vivian Saliba will all be taking a seat and looking to battle with the Bros.
The Bros vs Pros promotion is all part of the upcoming 888poker LIVE London Festival taking place at the Aspers Casino in London. The 24/7 poker action features 10 events over 12 days with $1 million in total guarantees. The festival boasts a schedule with the perfect events to satisfy everyone from the novice to the high roller.
In addition to the Main Event, value seekers can hop into any of the five starting flights of the £220 Opening Event, which promises a five-figure score for the winner. For the shot takers, there is a £2,200 High Roller and a £5,000 Super High Roller. On the other end of the spectrum, there are plenty of low buy-in events for those who are looking to splash around or simply get their feet wet in a live environment.
Qualifiers for the Bros vs Pros package are found under the Tournaments – Live Events tab in the 888poker client. Additionally, satellites for 888poker LIVE London Main Event packages are still taking place.
888poker LIVE London Festival takes place from November 22 – December 3.
