PokerStars Festival will kick off in London

1 November 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The first PokerStars Festival of 2018 will take place in the heart of London's West End at the Hippodrome Casino London this coming 22-28 January 2018.

The global festival returns to the U.K. capital for the second time with seven days of blockbuster action sponsored by PokerStars, the flagship brand of The Stars Group Inc.

PokerStars Festival London will feature a host of tournaments, including the flagship £990 PokerStars Festival Main Event, where poker enthusiasts and professionals will vie for a slice of the total prize pool.

Online route to live poker event in London
Registration for the PokerStars Festival London Main Event is now open with a wide range of satellites available. Players can qualify online now to win their way into the Main Event.

"Last year, 23-year-old law student Rehman Kassam from London played a live £120 PokerStars satellite and took home the Main Event first prize of £89,320, the largest win of his poker career," said Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree. "Anyone can follow in Rehman's footsteps and turn a small win into a big investment. That's the beauty of the PokerStars Festival series. So take a look at the satellites running now."
