888poker Live returns to action for the first time in 2018 when it heads to Aspers Casino in London from Feb. 8-11 and it looks likes Team 888poker will be well represented.

888poker Live Kick Off 2018 is a £440 buy-in tournament featuring four starting flights and a guaranteed prize pool weighing in at an impressive £120,000. Players sit down with 25,000 tournament chips and play to blinds of 30 minutes on Day 1 and 40 minutes on Day 2. Should they dust off their stack during the 210-minute late registration period, they can re-enter twice.

Initial reports seem to suggest that several members of the 888poker ambassador stable will be present and correct in the British capital. Dominik Nitsche is confirmed to play while a trio of 888’s ladies are also preparing to head to London. Kara Scott, Natalie Hof and 888poker’s newest ambassador Vivian Saliba will all be showcasing their skills at Aspers Casino.

Chris Moorman is also set to descend on the United Kingdom’s largest casino. Online poker’s most-decorated player will be pulling out all of the stops to get 2018 off to a winning start and will be confident of taking down a tournament on home soil.

While the £440 buy-in lands 888poker Live Kick Off 2018 at the more affordable end of the scale, 888poker is still running satellites into the £120,000 guaranteed Main Event. There is a $12 buy-in satellite that guarantees at least one £440 ($600) seat, but if you want to get your hands on a package, you’re going to need to play in the $30 buy-in satellites.

Should you manage to play your way to a $1,200 package, you will receive:

  • The £440 ($600) 888poker Live Kick Off Main Event buy-in
  • $300 for accommodation
  • $300 for travel expenses

Feeder satellites costing as little as $0.01 run around the clock if you want to attempt to win a $1,200 package for a single cent; what a story that would be.
