888's Live Poker Festivals Should Prove Popular

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Sep 9, 2016

Eleven day festivals will be launched throughout the year

888Poker's new series of 11-day live poker tournaments staggered over the year should prove again the value of this strategy in attracting players to internet poker through online satellites, and for creating greater brand awareness.
888live Festivals will be held at different locations three times a year and kicks off with the inaugural tournament in London's Aspers Casino from October 13-23.
The company has promised that there will be bounties, a high roller competition and a sizeable guaranteed prize pool main event on the program, detailing a £100,000 guaranteed Opening Event; a £2,000 buy-in High Roller competition; and the £880 buy-in £200,000 guaranteed Main Event.
888Poker ambassador Kara Scott will host the tournament, and the bounty element will target 888 poker professionals like Chris Moorman and Dominik Nitsche.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
