The PokerStars Festival London returns! The West End of London will be the hotspot for poker for a week-long celebration consisting of ten events, along with a chance to win a coveted Platinum Pass for the 2019 PokerStars Players Championship in the Bahamas. The Hippodrome Casino will host the PokerStars Festival London starting January 22 (thru the 28th). The PokerStars Festival London is the first festy stop of the year in Europe. The Main Event has a modest price tag of £990 and the organizers set this year's guarantee at £500,000. The Main Event kicks off on January 24-28. In addition, there will be a £170 buy-in Super Deep Stack event and the £330 buy-in London Cup. Also, for you high ballers... there's a "high roller" with a £2,200 price tag.
Jake Cody will be among the sponsored pros who will be in attendance. "I'm really looking forward to the festival in London," explained Jake Cody in a PR blast. "It's not often I get to roll out of my own bed to go and play a big PokerStars event with friends. Players can expect a great atmosphere and schedule. Plus, there are three free $30,000 PSPC tickets to be won throughout the event!"
PokerStars is also adding three chances to win a Platinum Pass to the inaugural PokerStars Players No Limit Hold'em Championship a.k.a. the PSPC. If you want a freeroll to the PSPC, you have to simply win one of three events in London... the PokerStars Festival London Main Event, High Roller, and/or the London Cup.

SPIN YOUR WAY TO LIVE POKER IN LONDON
Players can win their entry to the £500,000 guaranteed Main Event through special edition $11 (€15 on pokerstars.fr) Spin & Go tournaments, which run until January 19. Each Spin & Go package is worth approximately $3,100/€2,610, and includes entry to the Main Event, five nights' five star accommodation for two at the Radisson Blu Edwardian and $365 / €310 for travel expenses.
Players can also turn a small investment into a big win through a wide range of satellites currently running online at PokerStars. Last year, 23-year-old law student Rehman Kassam from London played a live £120 PokerStars satellite and took home the Main Event first prize of £89,320, the largest win of his poker career.
Before I go, just wanted to let you know that PokerStars HQ added four new events to the global touring calendar including a spot on the old-school APPT. Yup! PokerStars Live added four events... including the MEGASTACK London in late February, MEGASTACK Sanremo in Italy in March, APPT Korea in April, and Manila Megastack in late April/early May.
