The Chris Eubank Jr. KO has a £10,000 prize pool in addition to Eubank Jr playing with a £10,000 bounty on his head!
Round 1 sees the 45 players spread out over five tables with the winner of each table progressing to Round 2, which is where Eubank Jr joins the action! Bust Eubank Jr. and you get your hands on his £10,000 bounty plus plenty of bragging rights!
The freerolls are only open to UK residents who have made at least one deposit into their 888poker accounts. If that describes you, head to the 888poker tournament lobby before the 9:00 p.m. GMT start time and see if you can win your way to a shootout clash with the one and only Chris Eubank Jr.
