888poker Streamers Grinding for Festival Online Success
The Festival Online is in full swing on 888poker, with six-figure guaranteed events running and exciting PKO and Mystery Bounty formats for all to enjoy.
There’s no better series to gear your bankroll for - maybe you can be like ‘Trendki11’, who finished 21st in the $109 $100,000 GTD Mystery Bounty Opening Event for $291.72 - and a bounty of $10,000 courtesy of the Mystery Bounty.
If you want to battle against some of the best-known online pros or streamers, like Vivian ‘Vivi.888.’ Saliba and Ian ‘Simpioni’ Simpson, this is the online poker series for you.
There will be over $1 million in prizemoney throughout this series, with huge-field events and a 2-day PKO with flights running around the clock almost every day - giving every online poker player a chance to jump into The Festival Online.
888poker’s Vivian ‘Vivi.888.’ Final Tables The Festival Online PKO
As The Festival Online Begins to ramp up, we have seen the 888poker stream team begin to get into the action.
Vivian ‘Vivi.888.’ put on a great showing during the PKO Turbo Deepstack $15,000 GTD, where she made the final table before busting - the Brazilian Pot-Limit Omaha specialist took home $134.35 in prizemoney and $150 in bounties.
The champion would be found in Finland, as ‘BrutalSat’ scooped the lion's share of prizemoney and bounties with their Festival title. They received a massive boost to their bankroll in the form of $1,586.08 in prizemoney and $1,956.61 in bounties - we’re sure they will use this to fire more Festival Online events over the next 30 days.
Canada and the UK had strong showings at the final table, with 2nd placed ‘faraxd511’ and 3rd placed ‘alqsxr’ winning $2,148.52 and $1,441.50 for their deep runs in the PKO Turbo Deepstack event.
The UK saw ‘WalnutPix’ and ‘ReJamit’ come in 5th and 6th, respectively, with the winnings being $1,092.28 and $755.18 for these places.
Jordan Banfield Bags For Day 2 of the $150,000 Texas PKO Event
We saw two flights happen yesterday for the juiciest event on the Festival schedule - The 8-Max Texas PKO, which has a prizepool of $150,000. The first Day 1 flight happened in the evening and saw 64 runners, including 3rd place finisher ‘8ate8’, who cashed for $17,799 in the $120,000 Mystery Bounty Opening event last month, ‘BrutalSat’ who won the PKO Deepstack Turbo, and 888poker stream team member Jordan ‘BanfieldJ’ Banfield.
In the end, it would be the 888poker streamer who would bag and tag on the online felt out of those notable players - Banfield took $178.13 in bounty money from the flight as he advanced to Day 2.
In the second flight for the colossal PKO event, only ‘Getoverhere’, ‘pactamah23’ and ‘Blacklabs33’ would find a seat on Day 2 from 16 entrants.
More Flights, Freerolls, and Festival Online Events Coming
There are three more flights for Day 1 running today at 17:00, 19:00, and 21:00 GMT - a perfect spot for someone to win some bounties and bag a monstrous chip stack to battle with on the final Day 2.
You should check on The Festival Online schedule to see if you are among the 525 lucky invitees in an All-In Freeroll, giving away $3,300 in the prizepool!
All eyes are now focused on The Festival Online $40,000 High Roller - and there are so many ways for all players to get involved. You can find a $55 MEGASAT with 15 seats guaranteed for the High Roller, and you can find feeder satellites into this for as low as $5.50 or even free! Two freerolls will give away MEGASAT seats tomorrow, so don’t miss your opportunity for a vast spin-up.
