London Poker Festival set for September

Wednesday, 8 August 2012

After playing host to the world's best sportsmen and women these past few weeks the capital will be welcoming the crème de la crème of the poker world next month as the London Poker Festival makes a very welcome return.

Almost 80 events spread across eight different card rooms are scheduled throughout September with over £1m in prize money up for grabs and plenty of guaranteed prize pools. Coordinated by Bluff Europe Magazine, the festival includes tournaments and cash games to suit all pockets, plus parties, comedy nights, live music, a poker academy and the British Poker Awards.

Main events include the LCI UK Poker Tour, The Unibet Open London, The Big Bluff Five-O, the GUKPT, The English Poker Open, The September Festival Main Event and the Superstack Series. However, the festival offers tournaments for every level of player, with many of the participating card rooms putting on their own special events in honour of the festival.

“The London Poker Festival is a unique celebration of the London poker community, which is the best in the world,” said Michael Caselli, Editor in Chief of Bluff Europe, “By putting on this very special schedule events, we want to give something back to the poker community while at the same time positioning London as a major poker destination to the rest of the world.”
