888poker LIVE Lands in Manchester This August 888poker LIVE Lands in Manchester This August

After a very successful showing in Madrid earlier this year, 888poker is traveling to Manchester, promising another exciting, fun-filled, and highly affordable series for all fans of live poker tournaments.

The original plan was to have this UK stop on the 888poker LIVE calendar at London’s VIC, but the change of venue won’t have a big effect on the operator’s plans.

Manchester’s Grosvenor Casino’s Bury New Road will play the role of host for the series taking place August 14 — 25 and comprising a variety of tournaments, including the £1,100 Main Event with several starting flights.

Affordable Tournament Action Around the Clock

The 888poker LIVE Manchester series will offer all poker fans a chance to join the action without breaking the bank. With the exception of the Main Event and the £1,650 High Roller, all other tournaments on the schedule feature extremely affordable buy-ins.

Things will kick off with the £440 Mystery Bounty event and £100 Ladies event, taking place on August 14 — 15. Then, on August 16, there is the £340 Big Shot event.

The rest of the schedule features many more affordable tournaments, including the £220 Voyage Deep Stack, £250 The Mayhem, £200 The Dash, and even a £170 PLO Bounty event on the last day of the series.

There are also plenty of live satellites to the Main Event scattered throughout the schedule, giving everyone a chance to get their seat at the big table without having to risk the full amount.

Four Starting Flights for the Main Event

The Main Event comes with the price tag of £1,100, and although there is no official guarantee, with four starting flights in the cards and looking at previous 888poker LIVE events this year, we should see a very solid turnout in Manchester.

The Main Event action commences on August 21 with Day 1A. Day 1B takes place the following day, while August 23 will host two starting flights, one starting at noon and the other kicking off in the evening.

In addition to live satellites during the series, players will have ample opportunity to book their tickets to Manchester playing online. You can find qualifiers under the ‘Live Events’ tab in the ‘Tournaments’ section.

Currently, 888poker is hosting $109 qualifiers that award $2,200 Manchester packages, covering the Main Event buy-in, $500 for accommodation, and $330 for travel expenses.

If you’re on a budget but would like to get your shot at what stands to be a rather big prize pool, these online qualifiers are your best bet.

Like every time, 888poker will be bringing on the hype, with the army of ambassadors and streamers descending upon Manchester.

The Main Event action will be streamed live on the official 888poker Twitch channel and accompanied by a variety of freerolls and giveaways on 888poker social media platforms.

All in all, 888poker will be looking to turn up the heat in Manchester come August, and poker fans have a lot to look forward to as the operator has proven time and time again that they know how to throw a poker event to remember.
