Dudakov Leads Final 8 in The Festival Series Nottingham Main Event

It has been a heck of a week at The Festival Series first visit to Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. Robin Hood may not have appeared in the casino but players from around the world enjoyed a variety of poker action and casino tournaments throughout the week.

We have one more day of exciting action to go with just eight players remaining out of a field of 609 entries in The Festival Series Nottingham £450 Main Event. The final eight have each locked up £4,500 with tonight's champion winning much more with a £42,500 top prize on the line.

Optibet Poker qualifier Dmitri Dudakov will enter the action with a massive stack of 38,225,000 with the starting blinds at 250,000/500,000 along with a 500,000 big blind ante. Mark van der Voorden, Sean O'Donnell, Endrit Geci, Simon Gyorgy, Michael O'Brien, Ignacio Menendez, and Vegard Andreassen are also still in the hunt for The Festival Main Event glory.

The action will be live streamed on a 30-minute delay with hole cards exposed at TheFestivalOG Twitch channel.
