30 Tables, 120 Hrs, 24/7: Aspers Cash Game Festival Biggest Yet

cash game festival

The increasingly popular Cash Game Festival got its start in Tallinn, Estonia over the past two years with three successful stops.

Now its about to take that success on the road with a massive five-day, 24h festival coming to Aspers Casino in London, England.

From March 30 – April 3 the Aspers casino in the Westfield mall in East London will be a panacea of cash-game poker with over 30 tables running for 120 hours straight.

While the Aspers fest might be the biggest yet, it's also just a hint of things to come as the Festival will hit Malta, Prague and more.

Sviten Special, Six-Plus, Feature Table Live Stream

If you’re not sure what to expect at the Aspers Cash Game festival, here are the top games on tap:

In addition to that Asper will offer low and mid-stakes 9-game Dealer’s choice, two Sviten Special games and even Six-Plus Holdem, a variant of NLHE with a 36-card deck famously introduced by Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey in a very peculiar video clip.

Aspers will also have a feature table with live streams. The live stream will be on from 6-9 PM and 9:30 PM until play ends (local time).

The games featured on the live stream will be the highest games in Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, both set at £25/£50.

The games will also have some loose cannons who qualified online added to the regular line-up.
