[caption width="640"] King's Casion in Rozvadov, Czech is the next stop for 888Live[/caption] In October, 888poker held its first ever 888Live Festival in London’s Aspers Casino, drawing players from across the globe for a 10-day live poker tournament experience. Now, the site is gearing up to visit the second destination on the series’ schedule, Rozvadov, Czech Republic, and this time promises players even more guaranteed cash. The festivities begin January 26 at Europe’s biggest card room, Kings Casino Rozvadov, and culminate with the €300,000 guaranteed Main Event on February 6. Players will vie for a total of €600,000 in prizes and have their choice of 13 total events, with entries starting from just €60. 888 will kick things off with a bang on Thursday with a €225 buy-in, €150,000 guaranteed Opening Event. Players will receive 30,000 starting chip stacks and will be allowed two re-entries, with late registration staying open for 11 levels. On Wednesday, February 1, the €5,300 buy-in High Roller tournament begins. Participants start with 100,000 chips and will battle for at least €100,000 in guaranteed cash over two days. That event allows for late registration up until the beginning of Day 2. The 888Live Main Event is slated to start on February 2, and is comprised of three starting flights. Players begin with starting stacks of 30,000 chips and can also register late up until the start of Day 2. Hosting duties will be split between 888 Ambassadors Kara Scott and Natalie Hof, with the latter taking over the German language content. 888 pros Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, and Sofia Lövgren will also make appearances, and will each have an $888 bounty on their head. Those who can’t make the trip can still catch a glimpse of greatness, as 888 will livestream feature tables throughout the series. 888Live London Festival Main Event Is a Big SuccessFestival qualifiers are already up and running on 888poker, with entries starting at just $0.01. Players can try and win their way to the Czech Republic the hard way in 24/7 satellites, or win Opening Event and Main Event entries in $30 and $109 tournaments respectively. Kings Casino, which only permits players 18 years of age and up, is located just five minutes from the German border at Waidhaus and offers more tournaments and cash games than any other card room in Europe. 888Live Festival concept After recognizing the popularity of recent live poker festivals, 888poker went back to the drawing board to revamp its own live offerings. As a result, the company created 888Live Festivals, which feature longer structures, a larger variety of tournaments and buy-ins, and bigger guarantees. The upcoming Kings Casino event will be the site’s second Live Festival, and is just one of three planned for 2017.

  3. [caption width="640"] Luigi Shehadeh won the 888Live Barcelona Main Event for €110,000 on Thursday.[/caption] From a field of 609 entries, the €1,100 buy-in 888Live Barcelona Main Event played down to a winner on Monday with Luigi Shehadeh navigating his way to victory and a €110,000 score. The day started with 25 players but after Javier de Vicente Miquel was eliminated in ninth place, the official final table took no time in getting to a champion. It took just two minutes to see the first final table bustout. Carlos Garcia Rodriguez moved all in for 2,100,000 from UTG before Marco Regonaschi called all-in from middle position. Rodriguez tabled [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"] and Regonaschi reluctantly turned over [poker card="th"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"][poker card="5h"] flop put Rodriguez even further ahead, leaving Regonaschi drawing to runner runner. The [poker card="7d"] turn was no help and as the dealer dealt the meaningless [poker card="3c"] river, Regonaschi was out in eighth. It took just another couple of hands to lose another player and again queens had a hand in the elimination. Cate Hall raised to 225,000 from UTG before Jaime Rueda Sampedro moved all in for 1,400,000 from the hijack. Hall called and tabled [poker card="qs"][poker card="qc"] but got bad news when Sampedro showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="kh"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"][poker card="7h"] flop changed everything and put Hall firmly in front. Sampedro could only watch the [poker card="8c"] turn and [poker card="5h"] river do nothing for him except cause him to leave in seventh place. The quick pace of eliminations didn’t stop there. Just seven minutes later Hamza Miri moved all in from UTG for 740,000 and Stefan Eriksson defended from the big blind and showed [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"] while Miri was looking for help with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"]. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="8d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8s"] to eliminate Miri in fifth place. That’s when things finally slowed down. It took almost 75 minutes before another player was eliminated. Shehadeh raised to 350,000 from UTG and Hall responded by moving all in from the small blind. Action folded back to Shehadeh, he called and flipped over [poker card="kd"][poker card="ts"] which put him slightly behind Hall’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="qs"][poker card="7c"] gave Hall top pair but left Shehadeh with a Broadway draw. The [poker card="js"] turn filled that draw but left Hall with a flush draw. The river was the [poker card="tc"] and Hall was out in fourth. Three-handed play continued for another 20 minutes until Shehadeh found another victim. Gonzalez moved all in for 2,800,000 from the button and Shehadeh called from the big blind. Gonzalez had [poker card="3c"][poker card="3d"] while Shehadeh tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"][poker card="5d"] flop put Shehadeh in front and he stayed there through the [poker card="6d"] turn and [poker card="ts"] river to eliminate Gonzalez and get to heads up play with a nearly 8-1 lead over Rodriguez. Despite the huge chip advantage, it took nearly 35 minutes for Shehadeh to finish things off. On the last hand of the night, Shahedeh moved all in and Garcia called with his tournament life at stake with [poker card="ac"][poker card="7s"]. Shahedeh had [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"]. The board ran out [poker card="6h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="9c"] to give Shahedeh the win and eliminate Garcia in second. The win is the second straight six-figure score for Shahedeh. In March he won the €200 buy-in Only the Barracudas 27 Main Event in Campione d'Italia, Italy for €100,000. The next 888LIVE Festival is in August in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

  4. [caption width="640"] 888Live Series is heading to CasinoBarcelona for 13 events in May. (888Live photo)[/caption] Following the immensely successful first 888Live Series of 2017 at King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, the roadshow of poker festivals is hitting the road to Barcelona. Running from May 11-23, the next 888Live Festival features 13 events with a variety of buy-ins for players of all bankroll levels. With the spacious CasinoBarcelona playing host, players are in for a treat with massive guarantees in place and multiple Day 1 flights available for many events, giving everyone a chance to get in on the action. Among the marquee events include the €220 buy-in €100,000 guaranteed opener. This event includes four Day 1 starting flights and two re-entries available for each session. And to continue with 888poker's theme of uniquely named online events, 888Live is offering the €110 buy-in €5,000 guaranteed Hurricane, €55 buy-in €5,555 guaranteed Swordfish, and the €110 buy-in €20,000 guaranteed Breeze. For players looking for a higher buy-in to test their skills, the €2,200 buy-in €100,000 guaranteed two-day High Roller runs right before the start of the Main Event with late registration and unlimited re-entry available all the way up until the start of Day 2. Finally, the 888Live Main Event caps off the series, starting on Thursday, May 18. The €1,100 buy in €500,000 guaranteed tournament carries three starting flights and wraps up with a live streamed final table on May 22. Satellites for the full schedule are currently running on 888poker.com for all players looking to qualify for what will be a fantastic series at a discounted rate. Along with the packed schedule filled with massive guarantees, the 888poker roster will be out in force. Some of the players scheduled to attend include Natalie Hof, Sofia Lövgren, former PocketFives #1 Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, and 888’s newest team member, Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot. While CasinoBarcelona does not have a hotel directly on its property, there are many hotels in the immediate area to book accommodations including Pullman Barcelona Skipper, Hotel SB Icaria Barcelona, and Hotel Miramar Barcelona. There are few cities in the entire world that love poker more than Barcelona and this series should be nothing short of another smashing hit for the 888Live Series.

  5. [caption width="640"] The Protection Poker Action Clock in use at the World Poker Tournament of Champions in 2016. (WPT photo)[/caption] It seems like it is only a matter of time before every major tournament around the world is using some form of shot clock for their marquee events. 888poker is trying to get ahead of that curve. Beginning with the 888Live London Festival this October, all 888Live Festivals will use the shot clock for bigger buy-in events. The move is part of 888poker’s 'Taking Back the Game' initiatives, launched in May. “Taking back the game is about going one step further for our players to create a fairer, more fun and progressive gaming environment. As a huge influencer in a fast-evolving market, it’s important that we listen to our players in order to enrich their experience in the most innovative ways possible,” said Itai Pazner, Head of B2C at 888Holdings. “We believe that implementing shot clocks in our 888Live Festivals is one more step towards us improving our games through cutting waiting times and creating a more even-handed poker experience.” The clock will be in use in London during the Main Event and High Roller at the Aspers Casino. “I’ve always been a fan of the Shot Clock, so when 888poker suggested adding it to the Main and the High Roller Events at the Festival I was fully on board. We are already in the process of converting three of our cash game tables to Quick Tables with a Shot Clock so it fits perfectly with the poker room strategy,” said John Scanlon, Head of poker at Aspers Casino. “We always put the player at the centre of everything we do at the 888poker Room at Aspers Casino and we believe that players will really enjoy this addition to our ever evolving customer offer.” The shot clock, which will be operated by the dealer, allows players a certain amount of time to make each decision. Each player will have a limited number of time extensions to use each day which allow the player an additional 30 seconds. If the clock reaches zero at any point, the player’s hand is dead. Various versions of a shot clock have been implemented in limited events around the world. The World Poker Tour introduced the Action Clock at the 2016 WPT Tournament of Champions, the Super High Roller Bowl has always used one and a number of PokerStars Live High Roller events have used the shot clock in recent years.
  6. [caption width="640"] 888poker team pros Bruno Politano, Chris Moorman, and Bruno Kawauti are excited for the release of the Live Festival and Local Event schedule. (888 photo).[/caption] 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.” If you don’t have an 888poker account yet, sign up through this link and you’ll get a 100% bonus up to a maximum of $700. You'll also get a free $10 on top of the first $10 you deposit available to you right away!
  7. [caption width="640"] Catalin Pop defeated a field of 531 to win the first 888Live Main Event of 2017. (PokerNews photo)[/caption] The first series of the opening 888Live Festival wrapped up Monday at King's Casino in Rozadov, Czech Republic as Catalin 'SrylGotOdds' Pop defeated a field of 531 entrants to claim top honors. The appropriately priced €888 Main Event had a €300,000 guarantee that was easily surpassed and the final table live-streamed on Twitch. Among the players who reached the final table were World Poker Tour winner Niall 'firaldo' Farrell and top online professional Ludovic 'ludovi333' Geilich, but in the end, it was Pop who came out on top and claimed the €80,000 first place prize. Pavel Berka was the first player eliminated from the eight-handed final table and. Following an open by Geilich to 80,000, Berka shoved from the big blind and Geilich called. Berka was in trouble with [poker card="6c"][poker card="6d"] against the [poker card="7h"][poker card="7s"] of Geilich and after a dry board was dealt, Berka hit the rail. Geilich started the final table as the chip leader and extended his lead further by eliminating Alexander Dmitrienko. Lukasz Tomecki opened to 105,000 from early position with [poker card="qc"][poker card="tc"] and found calls from Geilich in the hijack with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] and Farrell in the cutoff with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"]. An extremely short stacked Dmitrienko moved all in from the small blind for 145,000 total and all three players called. Dmitrienko’s cards were not revealed. The flop came down [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="6d"] and Geilich bet 275,000, which found calls from the two players competing for the side pot. The turn was the [poker card="3d"] and Geilich moved all in and got both of his opponents to fold. The river was the [poker card="jc"] and Geilich rivered broadway to eliminate Dmitrienko. Geilich dipped slightly in chips after eliminating Dmitirienko but was back to his winning ways when he sent Juan Carlos Vecino out. With about 2,500,000 in front of him, Geilich moved all in from the hijack with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qs"] and Vecino called for his tournament life with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8h"]. A king on the flop effectively ended the drama and Geilich moved to 3,800,000. The first non-Geilich bust out of the final table was dealt out by Farrell, who took the liberty of taking out Tomecki. At big blind 100,000, Tomecki shoved for 2,220,000 from the small blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="js"] and Farrell called out of the other blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="7c"]. Both players paired their high card on the flop but Tomecki did not improve further and was eliminated in fifth place. The up and down ride of Geilich was put to an end by Pop, who claimed the final table chip lead for the first time in the process. Pop limped with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"] from the button and Geilich raised the action to 385,000 out of the small blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="5s"]. Pop turned up the heat to 825,000 and Geilich moved all in over the top and Pop called. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="jd"][poker card="8d"] board was not enough help for Geilich and he exited the final table. Pop’s run continued with his elimination of Farrell, who was denied his first title of 2017. From the small blind, Pop raised to 360,000 with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"] and Farrell three-bet to 925,000 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]. Pop moved all in for effectively 4,000,000 and Farrell called to create a pot worth the majority of the chips in play. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2d"] flop put Pop ahead with a set but the [poker card="qd"] turn opened the door for Farrell to chop the pot. The [poker card="7h"] hit the river and Pop entered heads up play with a huge lead over Bernd Schönwälder. The battle did not last long as Pop dispatched Schönwälder to claim victory. Schönwälder moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="th"][poker card="8h"] and Pop called with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"] flop gave Schönwälder a straight draw but he failed to improve on the [poker card="4s"] turn or the [poker card="5c"] river, giving Pop the hand and the title. The victory for Pop marks his first career major title which now accompanies his over $500,000 in online earnings. For the win, Pop earns €80,000 and the claim to winning the opening 888Live event of 2017. Final Table Payouts Catalin Pop - €80,000 Bernd Schönwälder - €50,023 Niall Farrell - €36,113 Ludovic Geilich - €29,184 Lukasz Tomecki -€22,785 Juan Carlos Vecino - €17,730 Alexander Dmitrienko - €13,247 Pavel Berka - €9,619
  8. [caption width="640"] Spielbank Berlin could be a potential location for an 888Live festival in the new year.[/caption] 888Live festivals traveled across the globe in 2017, setting up shop in locations such as London, Barcelona, and Minsk. The tour has yet to announce festival dates or locations for 2018 leaving some to wonder where they might travel to next. There are quite a few untapped territories for 888 to visit and with 2018 drawing near, below are five stops that could be made next year. 1. Playground Poker Club - Montreal, Canada In only a few years, Playground Poker Club has set itself apart from many of its peers in terms of volume of tours that come through in a given year. In 2017 alone, Playground has hosted partypoker Live twice, including the first Millions North America event. This week, the World Poker Tour is making its second stop of 2017. 888 visited for a local event in 2016 and a festival would add more events and larger buy-ins to draw entrants. There are only so many dates Playground can accommodate and should they secure a two-week time slot, the opportunity makes sense. 888 would be able to grow their Canadian market and promote the latest addition to the 888 team, Toronto’s Parker Talbot. 2. Le Croisette Casino Barrière - Cannes, France Cannes has played host to the World Series of Poker Europe in years past and this year, WPTDeepStacks made their first trip there. The €1,100 Main Event drew 266 entries and it is fair to expect that 888Live could produce similar numbers. The World Series of Poker Circuit is also in Cannes and the casino is ripe to add another strong brand to their yearly catalog. There are no 888 ambassadors who hail from France but having team members from the neighboring countries of Germany and the United Kingdom would do well for participation. 3. Hilton Prague Hotel - Prague, Czech Republic Since 2007, Prague and the Hilton Hotel have played host to the final European Poker Tour (and now PokerStars Championship) event of the year. During that time, there has only been one other series hosted at the Hilton, and that was in 2010 when Unibet came to town. The property appears to be well equipped to host another series and provided there are no major scheduling conflicts in place, 888Live has a second property in the Czech Republic to add to the schedule. This season, 888Live visited King’s Casino in Rozvadov. 4. Spielbank Berlin Germany - Berlin, Germany Another property that has hosted major events in prior years, Spielbank Berlin is opening the 2018 World Poker Tour calendar with the WPT European Championship. In 2015, the casino hosted World Series of Poker Europe. 888 ambassador Natalie Hof hails from Germany, making the fit more seamless. As 888Live adds more properties to its arsenal, familiarity will come in handy for those looking for a new destination. Assuming that the WPT European Championship draws well, 888 Live should be following up right behind with a festival of its own. 5. Undetermined Pennsylvania Location Online poker is officially regulated in the state of Pennsylvania after a wait of many years and 888 is prime to jump in the marketplace. Having a tie-in with WSOP.com and the Harrah’s property in Philadelphia make an 888Live appearance there a natural fit. The largest hurdle to overcome is the scheduling of the event. There is no definitive timeline for when online play will officially commence and should 888Live decide to host an event before the end of 2018, the need for online satellites is a must. Only time will tell when and where 888Live is to plant their roots in the state for festivals to come.
  9. [caption width="640"] Tom Hall played a key hand to win 888Live in London in October[/caption] While it is true that in tournament poker just about every hand counts, for those who make it deep - perhaps even to the end - often times there are one or two hands that can be looked back upon as being a crucial development to the story of the tournament. Those hands and decisions are even more magnified when playing in major events for heaps of money like the players were in the 888Live Events this year. With 888poker's circuit finished for the year, we decided to take a look at a few key hands from final tables that helped change the fortunes for the shot takers who found themselves in a position to go for the win. Niall Farrell Gets Popped Three-handed. After passing chips back and forth multiple times with Romania’s Catalin Pop during the final table of the 888Live event in Rozvadov in February, Scottish superstar Niall Farrell, found himself just moments away from having a choke on the tournament’s endgame. After the chip leader Pop raised from the small blind, Farrell, who was second in chips, looked down at [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"] and put in a healthy three bet. Pop, having Farrell covered, came over the top - moving all in. Farrell snapped Pop off and saw the good news as Pop tabled [poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"]. Unfortunately for the former EPT Main Event winner he only had a moment to enjoy his brief lead as the flop spread out [poker card="9d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2d"]. The flopped set for Pop put Farrell way behind, with just under 8% chance to pull it out. The [poker card="qd"] on the turn increased Farrell’s outs to one for the win and an additional nine for the chop. But, as we like to see around here, pocket fives won out as the river offers no helps sending the top tier pro home in third for over €36,000 and propelling Catalin Pop to a commanding chip leadthat he would not relinquish - claiming the 888Live Rozvadov Main Event Title for a career high score of €80,000. Cate Hall Plays it Cooler. Outspoken poker personality Cate Hall stormed into the final table of the 888Live May Event in Barcelona second in chips. After some early action which saw Hall’s chip stack fluctuate quite a bit she found herself in an unavoidable head-on collision that nearly left her on life support. Under the gun, Hall picked up the [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"] and put in a raise for roughly 2x. Spain’s own Jaime Rueda Sampedro quickly moved all-in for a little less and when the action returned to her, Hall called. Sampedro had her crushed, holding [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"]. Sometimes though, you just have to play it cool. Hall did just that and her pocket queens got there in a hurry with a [poker card="qd"][poker card="td"][poker card="7h"] flop. The board ran out clean for Hall sending Sampedro to the rail in seventh and helping propel Hall further in the contest. She eventually would bow out in fourth for €35,000. Haroldo Shows Heart. Facing a 2.5:1 chip deficit during heads-up play at the 888Live Event in Sao Paulo, local player Haroldo Ferriera Da Silva had his back against the wall. Needing to make a move he made a tank-call while holding [poker card="4c"][poker card="4s"] vs his opponent, Guilherme Cazula’s suited [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kh"] and the baby pair held, giving Silva some much-needed breathing room and ability to mix it up. Now holding the chip lead, Silva found himself facing a three-bet after his open raise. Looking down at [poker card="4h"][poker card="5h"] Silva made the call. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="8d"][poker card="6h"] gave him a gutter and backdoor possibilities, but he was also facing another healthy bet from Cazula. He called to see the [poker card="ah"] drop on the turn. The checked around action was just what Silva needed as the [poker card="2h"] completed the board. Cazula put the majority of his chips in the middle and Silva snapped holding the six-high flush. It was good. Casual was nearly felted allowing Silva to turn his overwhelming lead into easily the biggest cash of his career, good for $200,000 BRL ($63,862 USD). Tom's in it for the long Hall. UK poker pro Tom Hall was in the midst of a grueling battle. After reaching a heads-up deal with local UK player Ning Lu at the 888Live Event in London this October, one that guaranteed each at least £70,000, play had begun to drag. With £8,888 and the trophy left in the prizepool, the pair were reluctant to relinquish the notion of taking first place. After play crawled on, the pair agreed to shorten the levels to 30 minutes. Play continued. Hall requested to the levels shorten to 20 minutes, but Lu contested. Play continued. For over three hours the pair grinded their stacks until finally, mercifully at nearly 3:30 in the morning Lu and Hall got it all in. Lu held [poker card="qc"][poker card="td"] but was slightly behind Hall’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="5h"]. The board of [poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"][poker card="3h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="4s"] gave them both a pair but it was Hall that ended up smiling in the winner’s photo. Which crucial hands will change the fortunes of players in 2018? 888Live Events are set to return in the New Year with plenty more pivotal plays to pour over.
  10. [caption width="640"] Tom 'Jabracada' Hall was all smiles after winning the 888Live London Main Event for 7,000 on Monday (888 photo)[/caption] Tom ‘Jabracada’ Hall began the final table of the 888Live London Main Event with a 2-1 chip lead over his nearest competitor and 31.5% of the total chips in play. It took him a little over eight hours, but Hall eventually ended up with all of the chips and a £78,888 ($117,805 US) payday after beating Ning Lu heads up. It took over two hours before the final table saw an elimination. Hall opened to 80,000 from the hijack before Pascal Pflock bet his last 535,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back around to Hall who thought for 30 seconds before calling. Pflock was ahead with [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] against Hall’s [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"] but after the board ran out [poker card="kh"][poker card="jc"][poker card="2s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="qd"], Pflock was eliminated in ninth place and Hall added to his lead. Just 20 minutes later, Hall went back to work in thinning the field. Daniel Stanway raised to 110,000 from middle position, Shao Zhen moved all in for 665,000 from the button and Hall called from the small blind. Stanway folded and Zhen revealed [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"] but found bad news when Hall flipped over [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2d"] flop kept Hall in front and neither the [poker card="2c"] turn or [poker card="4c"] river offered Zhen any salvation and he was out in eighth place. The next elimination didn’t include Hall.Paul Nugent moved all in for 720,000 from UTG+1 and Pol Canals Hernandez moved all in over the top from the cutoff forcing the rest of the table to fold. Nugent showed [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"] while Hernandez was ahead with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="4h"] flop gave Hernandez top set and as the [poker card="qc"] turn and [poker card="tc"] river were dealt, Nugent was eliminated in seventh place. Three hands later Charles Akadiri moved all in for 965,000 from the hijack. Action folded to Hernandez on the button and he called and tabled [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"]. Akadiri was behind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] and got no help through the [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="8h"] runout and was eliminated in sixth place. Lu picked up his first elimination just ten minutes later. Action folded to Lu in the small blind and he moved all in and a short-stacked Stanway called all in from the big blind. Lu found out he was well ahead after showing [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"] to Stanway’s [poker card="ah"][poker card="6c"]. There was no help for Stanway on the [poker card="qd"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="7h"] board and he was sent home in fifth place. The first five eliminations went relatively quickly, but getting from four players down to a champion took much longer. Some 2.5 hours after Stanway’s elimination in fifth, Paul Scipioni became Lu’s next victim. Scipioni moved all in from the small blind for 1,100,000 and Lu called from the big blind. Scipioni showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="7c"] while Lu was quite happy to turn over [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"][poker card="3h"] flop changed nothing and Scipioni was only to watch in despair as the [poker card="6d"] hit the turn and the [poker card="3c"] hit the river. There was another 2.5-hour gap between eliminations as the final three players battled it out. From the button, Hernandez moved all in for 1,900,000 and Lu, sitting in the small blind, asked for a count before calling the all in. Hall folded, Hernandez turned over [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] and Lu showed [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4h"] flop kept Lu ahead and the [poker card="qh"] turn sealed the hand for Lu. The meaningless river was the [poker card="5c"] and Hernandez was out with a third place finish. When heads-up play began, Hall was facing a 2-1 chip deficit, but , Hall reversed that over the course of the next two hours. Before that however the final two players agreed to a deal that saw Lu guarantee himself £72,142 while Hall got £72,000. That left £8,888 to play for. The final hand saw Lu move all in with [poker card="qc"][poker card="td"] and Hall called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"][poker card="3h"] flop gave both players a piece but neither the [poker card="3c"] turn or [poker card="4s"] river were any help to Lu, giving Hall the 888Live London Main Event title and £78,888. The 888Live London Main Event had a buy-in of £1,100 ($1,450 US) and drew 427 players for a total prize pool of £427,730 - beating the £400,000 guarantee. Final Table Payouts Tom Hall - $117,805 Ning Lu - $82,358 Pol Canals Hernandez - $52,940 Paul Scipioni - $39,216 Daniel Stanway - $29,413 Charles Akadiri - $23,527 Paul Nugent - $19,611 Shao Zhen - $15,689 Pascal Pflock - $11,765
  11. [caption width="640"] 888poker returns to London for the 888Live London Poker Festival[/caption] Mark your calendars and book your flights as 888Live returns to the city of London from October 5-16. Hosted once again by one of the best casinos in London, Aspers Casino in Westfield, Stratford City, 888Live in London promises perpetual poker action and over $800,000 in guaranteed prize pools spread out over 10 events. With a wide variety of buy-ins and events, there are plenty of opportunities for players to get into the action. The 12-day festival is highlighted by a number of huge-value events. The kickoff event, the '888Live London Festival Opening Event', comes with a modest £220 buy-in that carries with it a massive £120,000 guarantee. The 888Live London Festival Main Event does one better offering £400,000 in guaranteed cash for its £1,100 entry fee. The festival also contains a High Roller, Pot Limit Omaha and Ladies Tournament. Also, live versions of 888poker's popular online tournaments The Swordfish, The Whale and Lightning Six Max will run. 888poker ambassadors will be out in full force to play host and compete on the felt. Poker personality Kara Scott, Swedish superstar Sofia Lovgren, three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche and the most successful online poker player in history, Chris '888Moorman' Moorman will all be on hand, and, often times, in hands. To keep the action moving at a quick pace, 888poker is debuting their new shot clock. No more staring into oblivion while an opponent tanks incessantly for minutes at a time. The shot clock keeps the game humming right along, allowing players 30 seconds at a time to make decisions, ensuring a faster-paced game and more hands per hour. When the clock expires, so does your hand. But it's not as if there's no mercy when it comes to the shot clock as sometimes there are decisions need a little extra consideration. Players are allotted a number of time extensions, which can be used when faced with a tougher spot, like when you are unexpectedly check-raised on a river you thought you just bet for value. As is usual with 888poker, there are plenty of ways for you to qualify for the biggest events of the series. Of course, players are welcome to simply buy their tickets directly but if you are one who wants to take a shot at, as UK's William Kassouf would say, getting “in for the min to get the max” there are plenty of satellite options. Online satellites start for as little as 1¢ and you can work your way up and step into qualifiers for both the 888Live Opening Event as well as the £1,100 Main Event. Players can also head to the Aspers Caniso to participate in the live satellites. For the Opening Event players have nine shots costing only £30 and the Main Event has another seven opportunities to claim a seat for as little as £50. The 888Live London Festival is set to be one of their biggest yet with fast-paced poker action, plenty of opportunities to qualify and $800,000 up for grabs.

  12. In just a few weeks, 888poker is taking their 888Live tour to Sao Paulo, Brazil for a week full of live poker. If you’re looking for a chance to get away for a bit and enjoy some live poker in a pretty sick location, you might want to give this event a good hard look. To help out with your decision-making process, we’ve put together a list of five reasons to play. #1 - The Main Event With a $400 buy-in and a $318,000 guaranteed prize pool, the Main Event could be a fantastic opportunity to get a decent score for such a small buy-in. Running Sept. 6 - 11, the Main Event has six different starting flights and allows for re-entries. Not only that, but qualifiers are running on 888poker for as little as one cent and direct satellites are running this week for just a $12 buy-in. #2 - The Side Events The Main Event isn’t the only poker tournament on the schedule. 888poker has put together a handful of other events with buy-ins affordable for every player. The High Roller has an $800 buy-in and a $63,500 guarantee. There’s also a Ladies Event ($160 buy-in) and for those who don’t make a deep run in the Main, but want to stick around until the end anyways, a Last Chance event runs on the same day as the Main Event final table. Also, a cash here would mean finally adding that Brazilian flag to your Hendon Mob collection. DatesTournamentBuy-inGuarantee Sept. 6-7High Roller (w/re-entry)$800$63,500 Sept. 8Celebrity Invitational---- Sept. 10 - 11Ladies (w/single re-entry)$160-- Sept. 11Last Chance$47 #3 - It could lead to a trip to Europe! Not sure if you’ve heard or not, but 888poker is an official sponsor of the World Series of Poker, and that includes WSOP Europe. 888poker is currently running qualifiers for the WSOP Europe Main Event, but they’re also giving a WSOP Europe Main Event Package - valued at $13,000 - to the winner of the Main Event and the Ladies Event. #4 - 888 Ambassadors & Live Stream The team of players that 888poker has assembled to represent the brand as ambassadors will be in attendance in São Paulo. This could be your chance to rub shoulders with the likes of Bruno Politano, Nicolau Villa Lobos and football legend Denison. #5 - It’s Brazil. Look, there are poker tournaments all over the world and sometimes they’re not in the most dynamic cities. This is not one of those times. Even if the tournament goes horribly and you run kings into aces on the very first hand, you’re still going to get the chance to explore São Paulo, enjoying great food, experiencing the friendliness of the Brazilian people and spend some time soaking up the Brazilian culture.

  13. [caption width="640"] 888Live Series travels to Brazil in the first week of September.

The festival will take place inside the Casa Bossa and the Cidade Jardim Centre in São Paulo. The festival starts on Wednesday, September 6 and runs through Monday, September 11 with a $318,000 ($R1,000,000) guaranteed Main Event highlighting the schedule.

  15. 888poker LIVE makes their return to the Aspers Casino in London from November 22 to December 3 with a 12-day festival full of tournaments that every poker player can get involved with. The 10-event series provides a wide variety of buy-ins, including the Main Event that has a $500,000 guarantee and will feature appearances by former World Series of Poker Main Event Champions. It will be over a week of non-stop poker action. Whether you are looking to mix it up in some small stakes tournaments or play for the big bucks, 888poker LIVE has a tournament on the schedule worth jumping into. The Opening Event The first event on the schedule is aptly named the Opening Event. It is a ₤220 buy-in event that, if history is an indicator, will provide maximum bang for the buck. The structure is solid for his level of buy-in as it starts with 30,000 in chips and 30-minute levels. There are four flights for players to choose from beginning on November 22. Last year at this time 888poker held a similar tournament called the 888Live Local London tournament. The buy-in was identical and even without a full festival surrounding the event, the tournament drew 529 entries generating a prize pool of ₤155,825. The top five players all turned their ₤220 into five-figure scores with local grinder Christopher Vernon taking home the first place prize of ₤19,670 (over $26,000 USD). The tournament should see no fewer than 500 entries over the four flights and with the support of a full festival could even exceed the numbers posted in 2017. The Swordfish Taking place on the first Monday of the festival, November 26, The Swordfish is a tournament for anybody and everybody. It starts with the smalled buy-in of the entire schedule at only ₤60. Even for that small of an entry fee, the structure should appeal to players of every experience level with 15,000 chips and 25-minute levels. This provides players who may not have as much live experience a chance to get involved, make a move or two and fire away without having to put up the buy-in of a major Main Event. Now, the prize pool isn’t going to be anywhere near that of the Opening Event but neither is the time commitment. The Swordfish is a one-day tournament and will likely be one of the small fields. If a player is looking to have a little fun and fade fewer players, they could always splash around with The Swordfish. In addition to The Swordfish, the schedule offers The Hurricane, The Whale and a Turbo Deepstack all of which have buy-ins less than the Opener. The High Roller On the other end of the tournament spectrum is the High Roller which comes with a buy-in of ₤2,200. Along with the increased price point comes a deeper structure. The two-day tournament provides 100,000 in chips and 40-minute levels. There’s going to be some big money at stake here. In October 2017, during a previous London Festival, 69 players ponied up the buy-in and the prize pool swelled to ₤136,626, well over double its ₤50,000 guarantee. The UK’s Jamie Lunt ended up as the official winner after a heads-up deal was agreed upon. Lunt walked with ₤34,985 ($46,130 USD) for first place. If the ₤2,200 High Roller isn’t enough to get your blood flowing, there’s a ₤5,000 Super High Roller slated to run on the final two days of the schedule. Pot Limit Omaha Sick of No Limit Hold'em? The Pot Limit Omaha event is the only chance on the schedule for players to compete in a game other than NLHE. Traditionally, during the 888LIVE events, the PLO event isn’t one of the better-attended events. This year it takes place on the same day at the final two starting flights of the Main Event. So, if you have already made Day 2 in the Main Event but still have the urge to play, try playing the great game of PLO. The tournament starts with 30,000 in chips and 25-minute levels, however with some much Main Event action going on the field will likely be slightly easier to navigate than one of the other featured events. The Main Event Of course, it should be no surprise that the Main Event is the must-play event of the series. It comes with a $500,000 guarantee and promises to be a star-studded affair. Plenty of 888poker ambassadors like Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, Parker ’tonkaaaa’ Talbot and more are likely to be on hand. In addition, 888poker will be importing a host of former World Series of Poker champions. Joe Cada, Scott Blumstein, and 888poker ambassador Martin Jacobson are all expected to be on hand. Last year, the Main Event of the London Festival paid out the largest first place prize of the series. UK pro Tom Hall bested the 427 player field and brought home 78,888 ($104,170 USD) for first place. 888poker is hoping that this year will be even bigger and have already begun running qualifiers and handing out packages for the Main Event which include extra cash to assist with travel and lodging.
