Memories…Cash Game Festival London

Published by Nick - 32Red Poker Manager on

Embarking on a partnership last year with the forward-thinking Cash Game Festival is something we’re very proud of, and seeing our Team32Red qualifiers having so much fun during the London stop is exactly the kind of experience we were hoping for.

The whole point of CGF is to provide our €1,500 VIP package winners with more than a few days sitting at the poker tables. The fact that these events lay on essentially non-stop cash games allows you to play whenever you like, leaving time to enjoy whatever the CGF team have organized as part of the VIP ‘tourist’ package.

Here’s a taste of what our players were getting up to in London, the venue being Aspers Stratford, one of the biggest casinos in Europe which also has a very well-oiled poker room that offers games all day and all night.

Note the varied games and stakes of the Feature Table, which saw two live broadcasts each day, and was where the players battled away for the CGF London Trophy & €1,500 Bratislava Package (see below…).

Day 1
  • Welcome Drinks (5pm)
  • €1/2 NLH (6pm)
  • €2/5 NLH (9pm)
Day 2
  • Cabana Restaurant (2pm)
  • €1/2 NLH (6pm)
  • €2/2 PLO (9pm)

  • €5/10 NLH (9pm)
Day 4
  • Beer Tasting (2pm)
  • €1/2 NLH (6pm)
  • €2/5 NLH (9pm)
Final Day
  • Sightseeing (12pm)
  • €2/5 NLH (6pm)
  • €2/2 PLO (9pm)

CGF London Trophy

There’s always a great atmosphere at CGF events, and the excitement increases during the festival right up until the last Feature Table broadcast, the question being which player managed to win the most Big Blinds in a single FT session to win the trophy and a €1,500 package for the next festival.

An early big win on Day 2 from Mick Smith saw him scoop a massive 635 big blinds, thanks to a multi-way, all-in pot. In fact he was on course for glory until the last card of the last hand(!) of the whole festival, when Kevin Malone took down a four-way all-in pot to see his tally reach a staggering 1032.5 big blinds (and a tidy €2,065 profit!). Ironically, Kevin had been one of the players in Mick’s hand days earlier, so this proved to be dramatic revenge. It was also Kevin’s third CGF trophy!

To experience a CGF holiday courtesy of 32Red Poker, simply play at our Cash tables, rack up Redbacks (and enjoy 30% Instant Rakeback) as you go and make the top 40 of our ongoing Leaderboard. This is enough to qualify for one of our fortnightly 8 and 32 player freerolls, each boasting a €1,500 package and €500. Have fun, and we’ll see you in Bratislava (3-8 April).

Are you the next CGF winner?
