Genting Poker Players' Championship starts in Birmingham today

Saturday, 20 November 2010

It's not just London that is hosting big tournament action this weekend. Birmingham's Circus Casino at Star City is the venue for the Genting Poker Players' Championship which starts at 2pm today.

Genting Casinos have boosted the prize pool for the £165 buy-in event by £10,000 with the total prize pool estimated to reach the £70,000 mark. The field is capped at 400 with around 250 players already registered for the two-day event.

One of those who will be playing is our very own Paul Jackson who had this to say about the new event, “I absolutely applaud Gentings creation of this event,” said Jackson. “Too many gaming brands claim to have the best interests of poker players at heart. But, in reality, they put precious little back in."

Mad Marty Wilson will be hosting the tournament, which will also be streamed live on the Internet at

We will of course bring you news of who wins on Monday.
