888poker reveals to players their location stops comprising its 2018 888poker LIVE tour, starting with London and concluding the year in Lisbon.

According to 888poker's eMagazine, there are a total of eight stops. The year's events starts off with their 888LIVE 2018 Kickoff, a £120,000 guaranteed tournament in which the buy-in is £440, scheduled to take place at Aspers Casino in London from February 8 to 11.

After London, the tour then heads off to Bucharest and from February 28 to March 4, JW Marriot Hotel will be their next home. On April 1, London will again play host before more poker action and some sightseeing escapades takes place at the 888poker LIVE Barcelona from May 23 to June 4.

After that, 888poker sends off its ambassador team and a group of online qualifiers to the 2018 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas from May 30 to July 15. Next, it will be in Sao Paulo, Brazil in September, and then back to London again in late November. Last but not least, the tour finishes up the year in Lisbon Portugal in December.

Dominik Nitsche, one of 888poker's ambassadors, said he is looking forward to going back to London where he plans to play in the juiciest cash games, whereas Parker "Tonkaaaa" Talbot said he is most interested in the WSOP portion of this tour, "My number one event of the year, as always, is the WSOP Main Event sponsored by 888poker. I love this tournament, and the $888 Crazy 8s is also a huge event. I think I fired three bullets this year. Hopefully, I can get in for only one in 2018, but the tournament is so damn awesome that I'll fire as many times as need be."

If you want to join the 2018 LIVE tour and wish to qualify, there are satellites for all the Main Events available online at the 888poker site.

Nitsche said, "There are plenty of satellites online, so you should obviously be looking to take advantage of those. It's always better to get into an event for cheap. If you have qualified and this is your first time playing a major tournament, try to remember that this is still the same game as it is online. Try to play well and most importantly remember that you will probably lose. After all, it's a poker tournament. Try to have fun and look at it as a learning experience."

How hard was it to pick more places, instead of picking London three times.
And all of them in the same casino.
But better for the players to have tournaments to play live, even at the same places,
than none at all.

London, Bucharest, Barcelona.Khm. Very 'inspired' choices. Not sure who would go to the Sao Paolo one if him/her not from Brazil, because I know being a tourist in South America comes with plenty surprises...

well yeah kinda strange selection to be honest, 3 times in London in same casino with a total of 8 events... that's almost half of all events in one place... throw in another event in Romania for some reason and only inclusion of north korea would make this tour a success

You have to travel if you want to participate in these live tours from 888 poker. I noticed that it's one in my own city but i certainly will not take part in it. I played live with my friends, but my opinion is that - I am an amateur in the live poker game if i go there i would go out very quickly. Big Smile

Most Eastern European Events are fun for foreigners because of the cheap night life so there is a good chance for a party even if you are out early. But London is neither cheap nor that much fun to be honest so I think they choosed it three times out of convenience.
 CALICUL02/02/2018 10:30:50 GMT
you are right bowie but these players who come to play on these tournaments still have the feeling that eastern Europe is a dangerous place for them. I say it's more dangerous to play in London because there are more dangers in my opinion. Should be tried in several eastern European countries and these players will not be disappointed. They will see beautiful places to visit if they like it.

Maybe they think that they'll earn more money from more rich UK residents. Or some advertising reasons played their role. Based on their distribution of traffic, they should run more tournaments in Eastern Europe, ex- USSR, Latin America countries, and Canada.
 Mober03/02/2018 08:21:01 GMT
These tournaments are not meant for "residents" that much.
Perhaps it has to do with the accessibility of the location.
Obviously London must be easier to access than some other parts of the world.
 CALICUL03/02/2018 09:36:31 GMT
of course is much easier for players to choose London but prices are big for this city which is not so convenient for all because not everyone has the money to stay in hotels with 5 stars . Perhaps it has become a routine for them and is much better. Anyway in the future will be more locations in eastern Europe for live poker.

I like 888 promotions, and they are POKER OF THE YEAR for promotions.
I will deposit $30 to take qualifier ticket for all events. Next event is Bucharest and I will try to be 1 of that 10 going sponsored by 888. Good luck all playing that tourney!

The 2018 888poker LIVE events across the globe will be the perfect opportunity for every aspiring poker player to broaden their horizons, and meet or play with notable professional poker players. Good job, 888poker.

London Casino Jaspers is an excellent place to start this tour .... and the third stage in this same place is certainly not very original .... if it is a tour then there should be different places for conducting tours as it seems to me .... and the seventh stage of the tour too in the same casino ... is it the headquarters?
 CALICUL10/02/2018 13:28:11 GMT
pajalnick this tournament takes place in 8 locations. Three times in one place in asper casino in London. I think this place is headquarters because 888 poker is based in Gibraltar a territory that belongs to the kingdom of Great Britain and north ireland. That does not matter much, maybe if there are a few pregnant women left behind between these tournaments taking place in London Big Smile
