Home / News / Big London MegaStack online qualifier this Sunday

What are you up to this weekend? Sunday at 8pm BST, to be precise?

Nothing important? Good. You might want to add this in your diary if you’re able to get to London the following weekend.

The good folks over at PokerStars Live at the Hippodrome are hosting one of our hugely popular MegaStack events next week in the heart of London. For just a £170 buy-in you’re guaranteed some big bucks should you go the distance, and plenty of play with a 50,000 starting stack.

But here’s the really good news.

PokerStars is running an online qualifier this Sunday (7th July, 8pm BST) that offers five seats into the MegaStack. The buy-in is £16.50 and with five £170 seats guaranteed it’s a great chance for you to get in on the cheap.

To find the satellite, click on the ‘EVENTS’ tab in the PokerStars lobby, then click on the ‘LIVE’ tab. You’ll find the PokerStars MegaStack satellite in the UK events tab.

The Hippodrome is hosting the event at Le Meridien


The live event kicks off with Day 1A and Day 1B on Thursday 11th July (12pm and 8pm flights) and Day 1C on Friday 12th (12pm). Day 2 then takes place on Saturday 13th (11am), with the whole thing wrapping up on Sunday 14th (11am).

With a big turnout expected, the tournament takes place at the Le Meridien Hotel in Piccadilly Circus, rather than the Hippodrome Casino.

Should you play and bust, there’s also a £440 NLHE event which runs Friday 12th to Sunday 14th, and a single-day £110 PLO Double Chance event at 5pm on Sunday 14th.

For all the info, head to the PokerStars Live event page.

Good luck!
