Welcome to the Cash Game Festival 2018 first event that takes place in London on the 3rd – 7th of January! We provide all games and stakes to add to the joy of playing poker. But that’s not all. To make you enjoy the whole festival even more, the Cash Game Festival would like to include you in our daily activities so that you can socialize and take a little break from poker. This the poker madness only we can deliver here in London at Aspers Casino Stratford.
Day 1 record was 15 simultaneously running cash game tables with many of them running all evening and into the morning of day 2. Games on the first day included hold’em, Omaha and, of course, Sviten Special with some getting their first experience in the latter.
Like always, the festival began at 5 PM with welcome drinks with many familiar faces coming to greet the team and each other. Shortly after the welcome drinks, the first live TV table started. It was £2/£5 hold’em time!
David Newson was the biggest winner at the early feature table that, this time, was commentated by our beloved Ryan “Metalface” Davey who will put in the commenting hours for the whole week. Newson shipped £1,424 in profit or 284.8 big blinds. The amount of big blinds is important since the player with the most big blinds of all feature table sessions during the festival will be the champion, receiving our TV table trophy and a hospitality package to the next festival of 2018.
While the poker room was filling up with players, it was time for the second TV table of the night. The stakes stayed the same, however, the game changed to Omaha featuring our regular players Jon Kyte, James Simms and Terry Jordon. The action got wilder because Terry was at the table and Omaha was played. We love when the two meet on the felt!
We got some strong players at the second feature table. But the honor of shipping the biggest profit belongs to Sam Miller who won £5,775 or 1,155 big blinds. This will now put him in the lead in the competition for the TV table trophy. Jon, however, will not give up, promising to return stronger and shipping that second trophy to Norway. That was his definite promise last night after the end of the second live table. So, expect some exciting action and tune into our Twitch channel at 6 PM and 9 PM London time during the whole festival.
As always, we like to entertain our Partner qualifiers and the players who have purchased our hospitality packages. You will find the schedule for the off the felt activities below.
