2014 Genting Poker Series Starts Today

Thursday, 13 February 2014

Players that manage to dodge the hurricane force winds, driving rain and biblical flooding and make it to Birmingham tomorrow will have at least £125,000 to play for as the Genting Poker Series returns.

The opening leg of the 2014 season takes place at the city's Star City Casino with the first of two opening flights off at 1pm today. As was the case last year, the buy-in will be £400+£40 with the clock set at 30-minutes. A second live opening flight follows at the same time on Friday.

A trio of guaranteed side tournaments complement the Main Event action starting with a £75+£10 NLHE event at 7pm tonight where at least £5,000 will be won. A further £10,000 is on offer in a £150+£15 event at 2pm on Saturday with a £25+£5 saver at 4.30pm on Sunday with £5,000 up for grabs.

Julian Thew took the honours in last year's event at Star City. The Sky Poker pro pocketed £40,120 after outlasting a massive 590 runner field.
