The Aspers Casino down at Westfield Stratford City is one of the hottest places in London right now if you’re up for a game of Poker, and you can catch games running and tournaments going wild with both professional and amateur players alike, witnessing some fiery moves and some plays that make Poker History.
The news right here is that the 888 Summer Special is going to start at this hot Poker Hub with a hundred thousand pounds guarantee right at the bat on the 7th of July, as a result of the casino’s one year agreement with 888poker to allow them to brand their Poker Room, so a lot of 888Live events are taking place there.
If you’re a player that really loves high prizes – and we mostly all do – then you’re going to love the changes this agreement brought forth since you’ll be having more local events with higher guarantees than ever before.
The responsible man behind the Poker Tables at Aspers Casino, John Scanlon, states that this one-year long partnership is going to allow Poker promotion and cross promotion with online poker tables because the brand they signed the agreement with is so powerful in the online world.
Scanlon also adds that the UK market is one that really makes partnerships like these worthy since they are going online for Poker as much as offline, and so the casino and online casino brand can make great things happen with the huge synergy between both brands and on how their mindsets complete each other, on how the poker industry should develop in the United Kingdom.
The Summer Special just started, and it is going to take the three days between the 7th and the 10th of July, making players compete for the huge hundred thousand pounds pool, which makes any player’s mouth water.
Satellite events are also taking place to enable more players to get in the ruckus, and the tournament itself has a deep structure attached having the 7th and 8th as two opening days for players to start using their 30.000 chips.
The event has an entry cost of 500 pounds, so you should be prepared to invest that amount, which is fairly small compared to the guarantee.
There is a re-entry tournament scheduled that allows two lucky winners on the tournament free of charge on the next weekend.
