Eight Main Events at eight different cardrooms at London Poker Festival
Monday, 20 August 2012
There will be plenty of fantastic value on offer to players in the capital next month with no fewer than EIGHT Main Events scheduled at eight different cardrooms throughout September's £1m London Poker Festival.
Bluff Europe Magazine has special calendar of events that includes tournaments and cash games to suit all pockets, parties, comedy nights, a Black Belt Poker Academy and the British Poker Awards. The action will be dominated by eight exciting main events though.
The action gets under way Casino at the Empire from 12 September in the form of the LCI Poker Tour. This £200+£20 tournament LCI Main Event gets under way on 14th September with a whopping £50k guaranteed.
On 13th, the Unibet Open flies into town and sets up camp at Aspers in Stratford, bringing with it all the parties and fun events that have become the signature of this unique tour. The main event is a €1,500+15 NLH freezeout.
That’s followed by the Big Bluff Club’s “Big Five-O” tournament, also a £200 freezeout with a massive £50,000 guaranteed. It’s a deepstack, too – with a 50k starting stack and a 50-minute clock.
The great and the good of the UK poker world will be honoured on 17th September at the British Poker Awards, the HMS President on the Thames. Voting is now live at thebritishpokerawards.com with tickets for the ceremony priced at £20 each available here.
Next, the GUKPT Main Event comes to the Vic on 20th for a £1,000 + £70 NLH Main Event freezeout with a 20,000 starting stack and a one-hour clock. It’s a three-day event supported by a host of mid-level side events and satellites to the main.
Then, after a year’s hiatus, the English Poker Open comes to the Fox Poker Club from the 18th to 21st September. This year, the English Poker Open is a £2,000+£180 entry event with a £250,000 guaranteed prize pool and is sponsored by RakeTheRake.
If that’s too rich for your blood, low stakes fun abounds at the Western September Festival in W3, with a £150+3 NLH tournament with a £17,500 guarantee. Finally, leg 12 of the Superstack Tour hits the Bluff @ The Mint card room. Low entries and good structures are what this series is all about, and this event is a pleasingly affordable £150 + £15.
