Poker used to be a game exclusively for people in the know. Today, there is no need to smoke cigars or find secret gatherings to play poker games with big money.

Thanks to the many poker rooms online, anyone can get into the game. You could even learn poker theory at MIT, if you were so inclined.

Practice makes perfect and since poker is a game of skill, it's possible to master it. But talent is also important. If you have what it takes, you could find yourself turning into a poker star. Perhaps you should try your luck at the upcoming London live poker festival…

Not only online

A lot of the poker action is online and that's great. It makes it possible for players from all over the world to meet in exciting games through their computers and smartphones. But there are also big events where real people meet face to face. You have surely heard of the WSOP; World Series of Poker. This is a tournament followed by poker enthusiasts globally. 

Entry to the big live tournaments often happens through poker rooms online. But there are also players who solely play in the live events and live on it. They live quite comfortably as the top spots bring in millions of dollars.

Perhaps you won’t have a private conversation with one of these stars, but you definitely have a chance to take a close look at their poker skills.

This could be the chance for a budding poker star to make headlines as the mortal who took on the biggest stars and made it. Such dreams have come true before. This is a chance to experience high-level poker in a friendly and safe environment.

Getting there

There are many ways that lead to London and for aspiring poker players, there will be a few options for how to attend the live event at Aspers Casino. 888poker has been offering special poker satellites where members of the site can compete for a seat in London. But it is also possible to simply buy in and pay for a place.

If you think you are better off watching the sharks swallowing the fish alive, you can also participate as a spectator. Depending on where you live, you might need to hop on a plane, take a train, or simply get on the tube to reach the casino.

More than poker

This could be a wonderful opportunity to combine some sightseeing in the late fall rains with watching some fast-paced poker games at the casino. 888poker’s players have had the chance to win a package where free tickets to a derby between Arsenal and Spurs was part of the winning parcel. There is so much to do and see in London. It is truly an excellent pick for an international poker event.

Sit on the nuts around the poker table or bring them to Trafalgar Square to make some greedy pigeons really happy. If family members and friends join the trip, you might want to split up so that those interested in card games make their way to the casino while those who don’t care can enjoy museums, fairs, and more. And for Brits who are in the vicinity anyway, the live poker event at Aspers Stratford could be a nice outing whether you participate in the actual poker games or not!
