888poker Live London Kickoff was a huge success
The last 888 poker Live event took place at the fantastic Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City.
It turned out to be a huge success as 745 entries generated a prize pool of £295,020 almost doubling the guarantee!
After the first two days only 18 players were left and they came back on Day 3 to compete for the staggering first prize of £37,045.
The tournament was also streamed live on Twitch with live commentary being provided by David Tuchman and Nick Wealthall.

Fast and Furious Final Table
The action at the final table was fast and furious. Local player Tom Runnacles started the final table as the commanding chip leader, while Ivelin Ganelin, who had qualified in a £120 live satellite was in eighth place.
Both players made it to the final four, where a 4-way deal was made that secured Runnacles the biggest paycheck.
However, Ivelin Ganelin defeated him Heads-Up and took home the trophy plus the prestigious title of 888poker Live London Kickoff Champion.
