A place where the common player is distinguished from the beasts of the game. A place where miracles happen that would not be possible anywhere else. Everyone is fighting for those coveted portraiture and the numerous packages that have been added to various disciplines. In Bratislava, The Festival started publishing these unique ratings, something The Festival has done exceptionally well.
It's Thursday, February 16th, the day of Main Event Day 1B. The weekend is upon us and we expect large numbers of players today. We at PokerListings are literally here from dusk till dawn and we'll keep you posted on all the details of this magnificent event. Yesterday we saw a total of 129 entries, where 19 eventually made it through the day and already secured a place in the money, and of course continue for day 2. With a guaranteed prize pool of £ 200,000, it is one of the better events of this season in the UK.
As everyone knows by now, The Festival Series is mainly focused on mixed games and today we kick off the ball with an Open Face Chinese tournament, six players have already been registered so that is very promising. The Main Event will of course be in the spotlight, which will also have two satellites played today. We also have a PLO 4/5/6 on the schedule, and a Deepstack NLHE event. Of course there are endless cash games going on all day long with the Challenge in there as well. On top of all this, there are Franke's Flip Flop games running in the evening hours, and you can secure your package with 'Spin the Weel' during the cash games.
We are super happy with the great atmosphere hanging around in the pokerclub, and we hope you will enjoy the liveblog today! Good luck to all the players!
