888poker Introduces 11-Day Live Poker Festivals
Posted on Tuesday, September 06, 2016 by "T".
888poker is taking its live events to the next level. The world's second largest online poker site recently introduced 888live festivals, consisting of 3 yearly 11-Day Live Poker Festivals with low buy-ins at different locations!
The first one will be held at Aspers Casino in London from October 13-23, with buy-is ranging from £120 to £2,000. The opening event, a £220 buy-in, will kick off the festivals and feature 3 starting flights. Team888 ambassador Kara Scott will host the event, which is expected to attract the largest prize pool in 888poker live tournament history.
Last but not least, poker pros Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, and Sofia Lövgren (just to name a few big players) will be attending the event with a $888 bounty on their heads.

| well i guess it's a right move, why not letting online degens to come out of the shades and hustle with each other in the overly bright casino lights, why not let the dudes actually hear the cursing instead of having to strain their eyes reading the pleasantries in the chat window? |

| 888poker being the second largest poker site did not came there with their software which IMO is one of the worst in the market.|
However they have so many popular promotions giving tournaments tickets all over for sure will bring their customer number very high.

| These events are bound to be well contested and i think that there will be a very large field of entries. To have Kara Scott hosting will only increase the entries!!! I look forward to reading updates on these events |

I agree with you,last month I can not place a bet from their lobby.And this month,new software for Romania,a lot of fuss,and big surprise ,I can not access lobby.Error message oker.exe- Entry point not found (The procedure entry point_except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll. )Do you know how to solve this error?

888 is the second largest online poker , maybe but I do not like it at all , have a good promotion , free tickets ,but how do you take a dollar when there are more than 7000 people registered for the tournament and always all in

| It is always good organizing live events. And event like this one with low buy ins,|
gives the chance to more players, trying something new, since the majority of the players
are playing online only.
I havent heard any of the big players with the bounty on their head

| Live poker by an online provider...... Whatever next? Online poker by a live poker provider? I think they may just have it? Why not get all of us home poker dwellers to leave our homes and get public transport to a live venue and play as badly in a live setting as we do in our bedrooms or bathrooms with our laptops.|

| Another unique promotional offer from 888.com!|
Many online gaming sites find themselves in a mature or saturated market. With a mature market there are no more demographic sectors to exploit, therefore, the only way to increase market share is to take it from competitors.

| On a more serious note, I am absolutely gutted that I am unable to make the first one of these during October as I am not in UK at that time. Such bad planning.... But I don't ink my family will allow me to,cancel our trip simply to play a live poker game..... Assuming I qualified or paid up for it..... Such an unfair life!|
