It is only a month since 888poker LIVE dropped anchor in London but the online poker site has wasted no time at all in announcing its next live event. 888poker LIVE returns to the famous Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London from April 20 to May 1, this time for a High Stakes festival.

The festival features an action-packed schedule running over 11 days. There are nine events with buy-ins ranging from £150 through to £3,000, and everything else in between. Kicking off the series is the £1,000 buy-in 888poker Cup, which has four starting flights. It shuffles up and deals on April 21 and crowns its champion on April 24.

While all the events are enticing, two stand out from the crowd: the £2,100 Main Event and the £3,000 High Roller.

The £2,100 buy-in Main Event features three starting flights, each with unlimited re-entries while late registration remains open. Main Event players sit down with a generous 20,000 starting stack and play to a 60-minute clock (20 minutes for the turbo-structured flight). Blinds remain at 60 minutes on Day 2 and Day 3 but reduce to 30 minutes once the final table is reduced to five players.
