BetFair Poker Live London Schedule Released

November 15, 2011

BetFair Poker just released the schedule for their BetFair Poker Live London event, which is scheduled for 2012. The main event will run from February 17th – February 19th 2012 in London, but there are also plenty of other events going on. Players will be able to join in on several side events and cash games that I’m sure will run all the time. BetFair Poker always makes sure they host a great event when they host BetFair Poker Live events and I’m sure this time won’t be any different in London.

BetFair Poker hosts live poker events fairly regularly and the last event they hosted was earlier this year. A total of 171 players took part in the main event at the last BetFair Poker Live event and the prize pool was nearly £40K. BetFair Poker expects more players to participate in the event in London and hopefully the prize pool can exceed £50K this time around. You can buy-in to the event directly in February for $600 + $50, but why pay full price when you can earn a seat through BetFair Poker.

For the next few months BetFair Poker will be running satellite tournaments to the BetFair Poker Live event. Tournament prize packages will include your buy-in plus other benefits such as travel money and accommodations. We highly recommend taking a look at the available BetFair Poker Live satellites running in the online BetFair Poker room. You may be able to earn a seat into the BetFair Poker Live event in London for a few bucks, which is much better than paying the full $650 buy-in.

If you plan on playing in the BetFair Poker Live event make sure you have a BetFair Poker account. BetFair Poker will reward the winner of the tournament with a $1400 prize package that includes your buy-in to the next BetFair Poker live event. BetFair will only credit the winner of the tournament with a prize package if they have a real-money BetFair Poker account with at least $.01 on the account. The player that’s eliminated on the bubble on the BetFair Poker Live event in London will receive a $120 satellite ticket if they have a real-money BetFair Poker account with funds on it.

You still have plenty of time before this event, but you should plan early. This is a great way to kick-off 2012 and you could add a lot of money to your bankroll with a successful weekend in London. Lots of quality players will be in London for the tournament and the cash games running are going to be really deep. BetFair Poker wants a large attendance in London next year, so they’ll be looking to reward a lot of tournament prize packages to players.

Qualifying for a tournament prize package shouldn’t be that difficult at BetFair Poker. The action is loose and you’ll find that most of the players in the satellite tournaments are simply throwing their chips into the middle with almost any two cards. Grab a bonus from BetFair Poker when you sign-up to play in the satellite tournaments and you could earn enough to help you towards your trip to London to play in the BetFair Poker Live tournament in February 2012.
