The Autumn/Fall period is a great time to be an online poker player. Plenty of series play out across numerous platforms and offer some scintillating guarantees. Well, this week sees action packed festivals on 888poker and partypoker get underway.
Over $1.9 Guaranteed in Grand Prix KO Autumn Edition
