Two online qualifiers shall get to play and live like a pro on PokerGO this week!

888poker, the world's second biggest online poker site dedicated to recreational players, is known to be a long-time sponsor of Poker Central live events. From November 5 to 6, 888poker and Poker Central are teaming up to give two players the chance of a lifetime on Poker After Dark.

Two qualifying online players would get to join some of the biggest names in the industry for a $10k Sit & Go during "888poker" Week. Two nights of action starting on November 5 are scheduled and the headliner of both sessions will be 888poker ambassador Chris Moorman. The two Sit & Gos are rake-free and will award $50,000 to the winner and $20,000 to the runner-up.

Last month, 888poker held two special $1 Buy-in Winner-Take-All tournaments, with each winner getting a $14k prize package that included a seat in the Poker After Dark game plus a personal Las Vegas tour by Moorman. The two tournaments had over 500 players in total, and the two winners were 24-year-old warehouse employee Peter Martin (pictured left) and 34-year-old Otto Richard (pictured right).

The $14k package in detail:

  • For just $1, an aspiring player could experience first-hand what it's like to play a televised live game surrounded by some of poker's top players.
  • Schedule: November 5 and 6, 2018
  • $10,000 entry to 888poker Week at Poker After Dark
  • $2,000 for flights and other expenses paid directly to the winner's player account
  • $2,000 worth of accommodation at the ARIA Resort and Casino from November 3 to 7 booked by 888poker
  • A special Las Vegas tour with the most-wins online poker tournament player Chris Moorman

Chris Moorman is considered to be the greatest online poker pro in history with more than $15 million in online tourney wins. He also is no fluke on the live felt as he won his first WSOP gold bracelet in 2017. Additionally, he's the writer behind two of this decade's most read poker books. 888poker Week will actually be Moorman's first appearance on Poker After Dark.

Also to appear in Poker After Dark are other known poker pros such as Kelly Minkin, Maria Ho, Jennifer Tilly, Eli Elezra and Bill Klein.

What a fantastic prize to win and it must be an exciting time for these two guys. It looks like it is going to be a very tough table and i hope that these two can catch a few cards and make some real life changing money

A very nice package to win.
And all of that for just one USD.
Every one with account there should try their luck.
Also what is interesting, is reading in this article that 888poker is the second biggest
site that exists.
Always wondered if it was 888poker second or partypoker...

It is very attractive this opportunity, to win one of the two places, to get to La Vegas and play in Poker After Dark. This is a rare chance to win a place and the entry costs only a price for a beer. About 888 Poker and Party Poker i do not know what to say. This year PP has made great progress.

you cant get many chances for this kind of events and only few players in year can be part of this for small amount and in this case for only 1 $!this are very big amounts for any of normal poker players and its great that somebody will have chance to win big amount from nothing!

This is what I call a good return of investment if I ever saw one, haha. These two gonna love the experience for sure. Maybe they will win some money on top, who knows - lol. I mean anything from this point on is a gift for them 4 sure. Big Smile

with few good hands and without bad beat they can come till end!maybe they will not be good as this professionals,but maybe they will have luck to get some huge pots!but this is one life chance and would be nice that they take this opportunity on best way they can!

This was a good prize! The $ 10.000 to the entry of the tournament, $ 2.000 to the Hotel and $ 2.000 for flights!!! All the others promotions with packages to a big tournament, only include $ 200/300 to travel. So, it not be thought for distant players, only for the nearest players. And, to put the cherry in the dessert...a city tour with Chris Moorman!
