The First Cash Games Festival in the UK will be held in the Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City in London from 30 March to 3 April. Within five days of the festival the poker players will get about 120 hours of the game play, the bonuses for the high-ranking combinations and other special offers from the organizers.
We should focus on the fact that the Cash Game Festival will take place in the UK for the first time. Earlier this grand festival of poker, sponsored by the iPoker Network, had the success in Tallinn, Estonia, at the Olympic Casino late this year.
In London, more than 3,000 players from 50 countries are expected to take part in the festival. Martin “Franke” von Zweigbergk and the organizers promise a non-stop play for 5 days in a row! And it’s not just no-limit hold’em. Here you can play NLHE, PLO, DC (9 game) ROE, Open Face Chinese, Sviten Special, as well as six-plus hold-em that appeared not so long ago!
“The games being offered will start at £1/£1 all the way up to £10/£25,” commented Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City Head of Poker John Scanlon to the PokerNews Live Reporting team. “I don’t think the games will be bigger than that as £10/£25 is already a big game.”
As a part of the Cash Game Festival it will be possible to organize any cash game at the request of the participants, and most importantly – the rake in all disciplines will be within accepted norms, with no additional fees and charges.
“We have fully prepared on the eve of 120-hour poker marathon, one of the most ambitious poker event ever held in our latitudes,” – said John Scanlon. “Marc Convey is going to be the commentator on the table.”
“We have created a special schedule for our team to ensure uninterrupted poker game for all five days – so that not a single player will miss a minute of action. We offer the widest variety of poker disciplines and the game limits, moreover we are always ready to open a table with any new game at the request of the players”!
The games are planned to be held at two stakes — £1/£2 (£50-£250 buy-in) and £2/£5 (£200-£500 buy-in) — with players given the chance to rebuy to the max at anytime.
The organizers of this cash festival invite the poker players of all limits to visit the festival, as they have promised that everyone can find the game on the pocket within the Cash Game Festival! Read also our ultimate UK gambling guide to find out about the best land based casinos!
